In developing countries, in which people have to live on less than one dollar per day, in which someone dies of malnutrition every 3.5 seconds, in which AIDS is wiping out whole generations and in which child labour and child slavery present a real threat, the brutal, daily fight for survival is immensely difficult for children with hearing difficulties. Communication deficits multiply the dangers and minimise opportunities.
Within the realms of the possible we build the simple but efficient infrastructure that is necessary to optimise hearing ability. We feel responsible for the special technical and pedagogical requirements which improve the chances for the future of children with hearing difficulties. We provide training for local people and information for parents.
