0 Raised Goal 75000

MY APPEAL

I am participating in the Vedanta Delhi Half Marathon (21.097Km) to champion a cause that's incredibly close to my heart: supporting Sense India in their mission to empower and educate individuals with deaf blindness.
Deaf blindness is a unique disability, often leaving individuals isolated and disconnected from the world. Sense India works tirelessly to change this narrative. They provide education, rehabilitation, and the precious gift of communication to those who need it most.
My goal is to raise Rs 75,000 through this event, and I need your support to make it happen. Every contribution, no matter how big or small, brings us one step closer to creating a brighter future for individuals with deaf blindness.
Join me in this noble endeavor. Your donation will make a profound impact on the lives of those who deserve to be heard and seen. Together, we can make a difference.
Donate now and be a part of this journey towards a world where everyone has the opportunity to thrive.

RAISING FUNDS FOR

Sense International India
Sense International India, also known as Sense India, was established in 1997 as the first and only non-governmental organisation to support the development of comprehensive services for people with deafblindness and multiple disabilities throughout India. Sense India works with local organisations to develop sustainable services for children and adults with deafblindness and collaborates with the government at centre and state levels. We have reached to provide needs-based services to around 80,000 children with deafblindness directly through 60 partner NGOs in 23 states of India, and through collaboration with the government’s national Samagra Shiksha - ‘inclusive education’ programme. With our effort, children with deafblindness and multiple disabilities have been identified and are being prepared to attend mainstream schools. We are also partnering with leading organisations in Bangladesh, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Maldives and Malaysia to train educators and setup needs-based services for deafblind.

Sense India advocates for the recognition and realisation of rights of persons with deafblindness with the government and our biggest achievement has been recognition of ‘Deafblindness’ in the Rights of Persons with Disability Act 2016 and their rights are now protected. The inclusion of vaccination for Rubella under the Universal Immunization Programme is another significant achievement of our advocacy initiatives. We are a member of several Central Government and State level advisory groups. Sense India is accredited by the United Nations and enjoys consultative status on deafblindness.
