Our Mission, Purpose & Dreams

Our Mission

To ensure that every deaf child is given a fighting chance to develop his/her residual hearing faculties to their fullest maximum potential. And furthermore, in doing so, she/he is able to converse and communicate fluently in the language of their choosing without any inhibitions fear or apprehension.

Our Ultimate Goal

The subsequent and final “mainstreaming” or integration of these children into normal schools is our ultimate goal.

Our Purpose

To see deaf children overcome their hearing impairment as early as possible by using oral language and communication to participate equally in our hearing and talking world.

Our Dream

No child should be abandoned or ignored for lack of hearing. Instead, deaf children should have adequate opportunity to grow into bright and confident youngsters.
