We started our organization 50 years back with the goal of supporting deaf people. We inaugurated with the training program for interpreters initially and worked with audiologists, non-profit organizations, and community leaders to enhance our services.
We grow each day by encouraging education, raising public awareness, and organizing communication development program for hard of hearing, D/deaf, and deaf-blind individuals.
