20% for young people with deafblindness

"Do you remember how you felt on your first day at work? Maybe you were nervous and had many questions, or maybe you were excited to meet your colleagues. But if you couldn't hear and see, how would you step into their world?

I am Crina. I have been deaf since birth, I wear glasses and communicate through signs, I am a person with deafblindness. I first heard about Sense International Romania in 2008, when I attended a meeting, then I was involved in several activities.

This year, I started to work for Sense Romania...

Together with my colleague Mădălina, also visually and hearing impaired, we coordinate a group of young people with deafblindness. We meet online, talk about our rights, go on trips, give each other advice.

We want to meet more young people like us, and help them be heard. Because everyone has a voice, even if sometimes we can only hear it with our heart, not with our ears.

Mădălina knows Romanian Sign Language and interprets for me. Sometimes it takes me longer to understand everything my other colleagues say, sometimes less, but they help me and we work together as a team. I wonder how other young people with deafblindness who want to work and are not understood manage.

Have you ever thought about how it would be like to have a colleague with deafblindness?"

Young people with deafblindness need your support

You read Crina's thoughts, one of our two colleagues with deafblindness. Since we began working together, we have supported her: we adapt the meetings, we are learning Romanian Sign Language, and we guide her when she works on the laptop.

For other young people with deafblindness is even more difficult to find a job and adapt, especially because not all employers are prepared to provide assistance.

Now, you can offer them the support they need! Redirect 20% of you profit tax to Sense International Romania, until December 31, 2022, and we will support them to have an independent life.

We are registered with the ANAF Register of Entities and units with no. 173227864/06.05/2019.

The amount sponsored is deducted from the profit tax, if it is within the limits imposed by the Fiscal Code: 20% from the profit tax and no more than 0.5% of the turnover, in accordance with Law 32/1994. The sponsorship is made on the basis of a sponsorship contract, which you can download from below.
