India's First Technology-based NGO
Sounds of Silence is one of the best NGO for Hearing Impaired in Mumbai & Delhi. Our inspiration is our founder Mr Sumit Singh Gandhi who started this as a social internship program during his MBA from SP Jain Institute of Management in Punjab. Interacting with the people from the NGO in the daily commute vans he happened to meet another 25 year enthusiast like us, but as he was deaf and mute he could not interact. Sumit being a keen enthusiast in conversing and interacting with others came up with the idea of writing a text and showing it to him. This lead to an engrossed conversation of more than an hour which took place daily. As a pilot project they gave 10 kids from pingalwara NGO in Punjab and taught them to communicate via SMS. Today they send 100 SMS per day in fluent English. Their IQ has increased from 65 to 90.
