Empowering Hearing Impaired and underprivileged children to use their innate capacities to reach optimum level of independence.
Hearing loss is the most common sensory deficit in humans today. • WHO estimates, 360 million persons in the world are with disabling hearing loss. Approximately 8 % (32mn) of total affected population are children, majority of them are in South Asia. • 2 in 1000 children born in India are deaf. • 6 in 1000 children born in Andhra Pradesh /Telangana are born deaf which is three times the national average and six times the global average. Globally, children with disabilities count for one-third of all children out-of-school. In developing countries, the numbers are even more staggering, with 90% of all children with disabilities out-of-school. Recognizing the need to provide facilities for children with hearing loss ,a special school for children with hearing loss was started in 1996 with five children.
Mr. Babu is a development professional working in the sector for nearly two decades. He has an MBA degree in Development Management from SP Jain Institute of Management, Mumbai. He is a CSR professional certified by Indian Institute of Corporate Affairs, New Delhi. He has been trained by CSIM and Social Impact in running a Non-Profit Organization. He is also a Special educator by training, trained to deal with hearing impaired children. He established an NGO Ashray Akruti, in Hyderabad in 1996 with a vision to provide a life of dignity to people with disability. Having a member in the family who is hearing impaired was the inspiration behind this venture. What started with a small number of 5 children now caters to Educational and Vocational needs of about 550 children and Youth with Disability. From providing special education the organization has now diversified into other areas in health, education and vocational training to address the needs of people with disability and marginalized sections of the society.
