The Deafblind Run was a dream project of Tattva - a voluntary action group, committed to making a difference within local communities. They partnered with Sense International India to raise awareness on deafblindness and raise funds for the cause across the state of Gujarat. The 400 kms run was led by Mr. Amit Bhattacharjee (a.k.a) ‘Dada’ followed by his team of 5 runners- Barefoot Raja, Ashish Singh, Urvashi Patel, Dr Pratish Sharda and Samneet Thakur. People of Gujarat witnessed such a run for the first time that covered a distance of 400 kms, in 80 hours and across 4 districts from Ahmedabad to Porbandar.
MESSENGER ON CYCLE (MOC)
Sense India organises its annual fundraising cyclothon- Messengers on Cycles on Helen Keller Day (27th June), to create awareness on deafblindness and celebrate the day. Cyclists and persons with disabilities on tricycles come together and ride for inclusion, education and support for children and adults with deafblindness. Each year, we spread the message of the importance of education, health and inclusion of people with disabilities into mainstream society by bringing them together on an inclusive cycling event.
NATIONAL CONCLAVE 2019
The National Conclave, started by Sense India in 2004 is the convergence of its Networks on a national level. As Deafblindness is a unique disability, its low-incidence and scattered population in the country became the reason for the formation of three national level support/network groups. These groups are of teachers (Abhi-Prerna) and families (Prayaas) of deafblind/MSI persons and adult deafblind/MSI persons (Udaan) in India. Sense India mobilizes them on a national level to assist each other and become the most potent force to influence policy in favour of deafblind/MSI children and adults in the country.
The National Conclave is a platform for the three groups to come together to do an impact based advocacy for their rights, sensitization and awareness for the community and influence Government bodies like Samagra Shiksha Abhiyaan (SSA) for inclusion in mainstream. This year along with attainment set objectives, the focus was on building capacities and knowledge base of our members through training programmes and interactive sessions.
