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.

 Importance of Hearing Aid
Sathish, a hearing impaired child,age 11 years, hails from a poor family. His father is a farmer and they had no idea what a Hearing Aid was and how it could help their chilld acquire speech and language skills. We provide hearing aids to as many children as we can, to enhance their residual hearing and assist them in learning and speaking. Sathish joined Ashray Akruti two years back and we have provided him with a good hearing aid which helps to make use of the residual hearing power. Hearing aids enhance each child’s capacity to hear, learn and speak, enabling them to communicate without any reliance on sign language. A Hearing Aid coupled with speech and audio therapy has helped Sathish to speak and frame small sentences.
 An underprivileged child getting educated
Sunitha, age 10 years, comes from a family of rural background. Her father is a watchman and mother works as housemaid. With their meagre income they have to run a family of five members. Sunitha used to go to a Telugu medium school but due to the poor financial condition she had to discontinue her studies. Since she came from Telugu medium school it was quite difficult for her to study in English medium. Teachers at Ashray Akruti were able to identify her problem and started intensively focusing on improving her English gradually. We follow low teacher (1:5) student ratio so that each child gets individual attention. Sunitha now shows keen interest in studies and is a student of Grade 4. She has made lots of friends and actively participates in extra curricular activities. Her favourite subject is Social Studies and she aspires to become a Doctor.

 An underprivileged child getting educated
Four year old Abhishek Vardhan hails from a poor family in Kadapa. When his family realized that their 11 month child was hearing impaired, they consulted all kinds of religious babas, since they couldn’t afford hearing aids. But alas, nothing worked. With their friends’ support, the family was finally able to procure a hearing aid, but they were still clueless about providing Abhishek with the education he needed. They later learnt about Ashray Akruti through one of their friends. At Ashray Akruti, he was admitted into the fast track class where he was helped with special education at an accelerated pace. He is now being helped with auditory training, special therapy and academic training by a special educator and a speech therapist. Abhishek’s listening skills have improved, and he is now able to lip read and comprehend words and simple sentences. He is now able to read letters and words, and is able to communicate in words and phrases. His parents are very happy to see their child’s improvement and hope that he has a bright future ahead of him.
 An underprivileged child getting educated
When two year old Shubhanbi was discovered to be hearing impaired, her auto driver father and homemaker mother were traumatised to say the least. With no sufficient income and no resources in Kadapa, they felt lost and helpless. Thankfully though, they found out that Ashray Akruti started a school in Kadapa and enrolled her immediately. They were overjoyed when they found out that Hans Foundation agreed to do a Cochlear Implant surgery for her. Once Shubhanbi came back from the surgery at Max Hospitals in Delhi, she started receiving Audio Verbal Therapy at school. Shubhanbi is making excellent progress with the intensive speech therapy that she is receiving at the centre. Her listening skills have vastly improved; and she is able to respond to others by listening. She is now able to communicate in complete sentences. Her parents are overwhelmed to see this transformation in their child.
