On April 14 of the current year, Charity Foundation “AI IA” celebrates 6th anniversary. The mission of the Foundation, as part of Smart Capital Group Social Responsibility, is to promote the social integration of children with hearing impairments, which is implemented by the Foundation through various activities. Complex rehabilitation services in the fund include audio-verbal, speech, art and music therapies, special teacher and psychologist services, fully funded by the founder for more than 30 children and parents at this stage. Also, Foundation offers services of various awareness raising campaigns in schools, kindergartens and participation in public events both in Tbilisi and in the regions. Training programs for professionals are held to strengthen specialists.
The Foundation is one of the first organization in the field of services for children with hearing impairments to start caring for the needs of children with cochlear implants and after 6 years of work has the relevant competencies and skills to share these experiences with others.
More than 10 beneficiaries already completed 5 years of continuous rehabilitation service at the fund. Also anyone can benefit from the consultations of our experts free of charge. By now, more than 200 families were supported in this regard.
We believe that with the help of both Georgian and international donor organizations, grant assistance organizations, as well as our ongoing collaboration with the international colleagues and industry experts, we will be able to offer modern, high-quality services to deaf and hearing-impaired children with special needs and their parents and help them to develop skills to live an independent and increased quality of life.
