Sense International review 2016/17
In 2016/2017, Sense International made headway in transforming the lives of people with deafblindness and their familiies.
- Sense International (Romania) set up the eighth vocational workshop in the country where over 160 young people with deafblindess have learned trades like digital typography.
- We have launched the first ever screening and early intervention services for babies in Kenya and Uganda where, so far, 4,685 infants have been screened for sensory impairments.
- Sense International (Peru) trained 143 teachers in inclusive teaching methods for children with deafblindness.
- In Bangladesh, we supported the delivery of vocational training for young people with deafblindness so they can develop the skills they need to earn a living.
- In Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda, mainstream teachers visited 1,082 children with deafblindness at home, and supported parents to follow a specially developed curriculum in order to help these children transition into inclusive mainstream education.
- Sense International extended its work into Nepal. We have been working to establish strong links with organisations that are working with people with deafblindness, building the skills and knowledge of community-based workers and educators.
