Our fundraising is primarily through word of mouth (initially from friends and family and informal gatherings.) In the future, as our accomplishments grow and as we learn more about the needs of children who benefit from cochlear implantation, we expect to apply for grants from institutions and other charities.
As for distribution, the money we raise is distributed through grant making with donor agreements primarily to institutions, foundations, hospitals and charities.
Our Mission is to focus on the children post implant. The surgical part of the cochlear implant process is a medical matter and outside the scope of our activities. We begin our activities after the the child has been implanted or with education and support (primarily though education) prior to implantation. That is when we see the most care being needed and when the child literally needs to be taught how to hear, what to hear, how to process the sounds, how to speak and how to interact with peers all of which enables the child to function seamlessly in the “mainstream.” And we assist caregivers during the journey by educating them, with support sessions and the like. There are numerous studies that show that these activities are quite positive.
