Corporate Social Responsibilty
Hearing loss is the most common sensory deficit in humans today. As per WHO estimates, there are approximately 63 million people in India, who are suffering from Significant Auditory Impairment. Apart from the tragic loss of an important communication modality, such impairments frequently accentuate the social and economic divide in our communities.
We in OnMobile will work with partners and recognized institutions to help people who are affected by such impairments, especially those who are unable to access proper care due to a lack of resources.
In addition to making available hearing aids to such people, we will assist by
- Imparting education on noise induced hearing loss, to workers in high decibel environments
- Conducting screening camps for early detection of hearing impairment and deafness
- Developing the vocational skills of the hearing impaired and making them employable, thereby addressing the associated stigma of deafness
