We, who work alongside deafblind people and their families, do not claim that deafblind people are the only group of poor people in the world. But we do say this: deafblind people are amongst the most marginal, the poorest of the poor communities in the world. Their experience of “social exclusion” – to use the jargon of the international community – is as profound and as debilitating, as any of the poorest communities in our society.
In the experience of Sense International, documented through over 10 years of active work in both the developed and developing world, deafblind people are uniquely vulnerable: subject to institutionalisation, stigma, isolation within the wider community and families, denied the opportunity to work, denied the opportunity to take their place as citizens with equal rights.
