Our impact

 

We are a small charity with a big impact because of the way we work.

Partnership is central to what we do – partnership with people with deafblindness, their families, communities, health and education professionals, organisations of people with disabilities, and governments.

We work directly with local people and local organisations to find and share knowledge, skills, and expertise. This way, vital support can continue into the future in a sustainable way. 

For the children, young people and families that we support, our work has a life-changing impact.

 

"Meeting the team at Sense International Kenya was the turning point for the family. They gave us a new hope and purpose for our baby."

- Tabby, mother of Sospeter
