MISSION

Hear a Million aims to reach the lives of 1 million Deaf people in India, with a goal of empowering them to lead productive lives, throughout their lifecycle, from childhood to adulthood and more. 

Hear A Million has a vision to reach and empower the deaf community in India, through research and the power of collectives, i.e., contribution and support from all the stakeholders in the deaf ecosystem! 

POWER OF THE COLLECTIVES

The goal of building a collective community is to include partners and allies who shall have the opportunity to work together to achieve the common vision of empowering a million deaf, in years to come. We, as a collective, will develop a DEAF-CENTRIC vision. Together, we can and we will, break the wall of barriers for the deaf in India!
