" Hearing is crucial for a child's development, learning and growth in the society, but being a hidden sense in itself, hearing impairment goes unnoticed in a majority of students. I believe that with early testing, diagnosis and correction if required, many students would be positively impacted and would learn and perform better at school. I have experienced the above myself and am certain that more such students would be happy to get recognized and supported for the good in them. "

Better Hearing for Enhanced Learning also known as Project Dhwani focusses mainly on creating awareness about the hard of hearing students and young adults. Plans for reducing the difficulties faced by the hard of hearing students and reducing the stigma around hearing loss is the main focus of our awareness.
