Unlocking Potential: Cochlear Implants and Empowering Children at Hear His Voice Uganda

August 25, 2023 0 Comments

Hear His Voice Uganda is a non-government organization working with children
with hearing impairment and hard of hearing but with cochlear implants in
them. Our vision is to empower every child and individual with hearing loss to
attain their full potential and live independent and productive lives in the

A cochlear implant is a small, complex electronic device that can help to
provide a sense of sound to a person who is profoundly deaf or severely hard of
hearing. Most parents are afraid of letting their children receive cochlear
implants because they are afraid of the outcomes, it is in human nature to get
scared of technology and to also assume there will be trouble after the implants,
the good news is we are here to teach you all you need to know, we have
worked with parents and children of all years, we have specialists who can
explain anything you need to know about how it works.

At first, before joining Hear His Voice Uganda, I thought I can only teach a deaf
child by use of sign language which is possible to learn but has limits, I was so
surprised at how children with hearing loss hear my words and they respond, it so
exciting to know that through cochlear and good training plus
therapy which is offered here at the center a parent can sit home relaxed while
his or her child moves out without an interpreter to help tell those who don’t
know sign language what he or she is saying, the children that we bring up
though born with a disability they can live normal lives, they can express
themselves freely knowing they can speak now and forever, it also saves them
from suffering stigma from the society.

I can write a whole book about what I have learned and seen at Hear His Voice
Uganda but allow me to leave you with questions to be answered if you come
to the center remember it doesn’t matter how you raise your child, what matters
is how your child benefits from what you offer, if you have a deaf child or hard
of hearing child, the best thing you can offer them is hearing, that is allowing
them to get the implants and trust me we shall walk all the way through with you
because the truth is it’s not easy but it’s a beautiful one and with fruitful results.
