  • Sound Seekers

    Sound Seekers has worked for over 50 years to improve the lives of deaf and hearing-impaired children in the poorest countries of the world. We do this by building and sustaining local capacity, so that professionals have the skills and tools they need to help deaf children themselves. This means we provide equipment and training so local health workers can diagnose and treat hearing loss, fit hearing aids, and provide an effective referral service. We provide support for schools for deaf children, so teachers are better able to provide a quality education. And we work to improve people’s understanding of the needs of deaf people – especially important in cultures where disability can be considered taboo. Currently we have active medical and/or educational projects in The Gambia, Ghana, India, Kenya, Lesotho, Malawi, Tanzania and Zambia.
