Currently, our largest programme of work in is Inclusive Education.
In lower-income countries, children with hearing loss and Deafness rarely receive any schooling. In the UK there are inequalities in educational attainment for children and young people with hearing loss compared to those with no special educational need (SEN).
We believe that all children should feel valued as a part of their community and have a sense of belonging. Every child should have the opportunity to access education and have the best possible opportunity to learn. They should be welcomed and included by teachers and peers alike.
Inclusive education means that all students are able to learn side by side in the classroom. It values diversity and the contribution each student brings to the classroom.
The focus of our Inclusive Education programme is currently in sub-Saharan Africa.
Our projects include the following activities:
Parent support groups
Awareness and communication training
Lobbying and advocacy
