Who Are We?


Helping the world hear, one child at a time

India is today home to 15 million hearing impaired citizens. Most of them don’t have access to basic facilities, which could enable them to learn how to listen, speak, read, write and become independent citizens. This lack of facilities for the hearing impaired citizens of India has propelled Suniye to step in and run a support school where young hearing impaired children are taught spoken and written language.

Hearing Loss is an Unseen Disability

Established in 1995, Suniye is a leading non profit organisation in India working with and for hearing impaired children and has become a representative for the hearing impaired community in India. It is managed by parents of hearing impaired children and assisted by professionals, speech therapists, audiologists, doctors, teachers etc.

Suniye is dedicated to helping the hearing impaired acquire language, learn to talk, go to regular schools and become useful members of society.

Suniye runs a support school which encourages inclusive education while helping in developing speech and language.Since 2009, we have been running our own School at Sector II, R.K.Puram, New Delhi. The land was allotted to us on payment by the land and Development office, Ministry of Urban Development and Poverty Alleviation, Government of India, Nirman Bhavan, New Delhi.

Suniye is registered with the Registrar of Societies, Govt. of Delhi vide no. S-28443/95 dated 21.09.95 having its registered office at 1/4992 Loni Road, Shahdara, Delhi – 110092. (Registered office amended to Plot opposite House Nos. 828-813, Type I Quarters, Sector II, R.K.Puram, New Delhi – 110022

Mission


Suniye’s mission is to help hearing impaired acquire language, learn to talk, go to regular schools and become part of mainstream society.

It has been found that early intervention and fitting of suitable hearing aids can enable hearing impaired children to acquire language and speech, go to normal schools, get employment in useful vocations and get integrated in the society.

A child who is born with hearing impairment, if not diagnosed at an early stage and fitted with proper hearing aids, would not pick up language and will not speak later on.

Just putting a pair of hearing aids does not work. Counselling is needed for the parents and near and dear ones of a hearing impaired child for language and speech development. The Child requires to be taught to listen to sounds, identify meanings of such sounds and make efforts to talk to express feelings and desires.

Facilities for conducting language and speech classes are available in a few government hospitals. These are found inadequate to meet the needs of all such children. The parents have, therefore, to seek the help of private institutions or tutors who charge exorbitantly. Since many parents cannot afford to spend so much, the children are deprived of timely help in acquiring language and making progress in life.

Vision


  • Suniye envisions a society where the hearing impaired lead an active, healthy and dignified life.
  • Suniye aims to improve the existing facilities for hearing impaired children in the fields of education, employment and lifestyle.
  • Suniye aims to bring all hearing children into mainstream society and enable them to live with dignity.
