CRT1 / Vice Chairman 2012/2013
Lets spend a moment in Nilupa’s shoes …… truly for a moment!
You’re a child born with profound hearing loss (in medical terms “Severely Deaf”) and came to NHFs shelter at the tender age of two, almost a decade ago!
Then a miracle happens…! The CRT1 - sings music to your ears in a way that you could hear for the first time in your life by gifting an Audiology & Verbal Therapy Center to NHF, where you were given hearing aids and provided speech therapy for nearly 4years ……..!
Now Nilupa hears her own music by skillfully playing the violin ……. and speaks reasonably well too. A very talented pupil in school and she recently got through her grade 5 scholarship exam . Nilupa still continues to visit NHF three days a week to learn music …… what she likes the most …….
She is hoping to be a musician …….. One day !
By joining hands with “Have You Heard” Project You can help to end the silence - in a big or small way!
Why Narada Savana Hearing Foundation?
CRT 01 Involvement
Role of RT Austria
PHASE 3 - Proposition
is to prevent children with impaired hearing growing up untreated due to poverty and ignorance of their parents.
NaradaSavana (Hear) Foundation, NHF, has so far integrated several rehabilitated deaf children to regular primary schools and is continuing to enroll more kids in order to allow them to join the main stream society without a burden.
Once a child’s hearing loss is diagnosed and appropriate hearing aids are made available, the child can be taught to listen, hear and learn the spoken word through the use of techniques such as auditory verbal therapy.
