Changing quality of life for people with Hearing Loss.
By implementing fundamental initiatives to embrace all areas of need at once, our programme is a combined concept of support which positively impacts all people with hearing loss in Southern Africa. By changing their quality of life with access to sound and a mode of communication, we focus to create equal opportunities, better education and employment opportunities, sustainable futures and independence for deaf children and adults to be socially accepted and integrated into society where they can in return make a difference in society. By embracing 2 main projects, we make a difference by raising funds for deaf, unprivileged children to attend main stream education and for children and adults with limited financial means in need of Cochlear Implants.
The earlier a child has sufficient access to sound, the more likely the chances that they will develop age-appropriate listening, language and speech skills. This means that they will have access to mainstream education, which ultimately allows them to pursue a career of their choice. Spoken language allows children and adults with hearing loss, to develop privacy, choice and independence and in doing so become a well-adjusted, contributing member of society.
