The Pontis Foundation has developed an innovative programme for hearing-impaired children, whereby “flying” teachers provide them with lessons at home.
There are very few institutions for these children in Slovakia and parents often have to travel long distances to obtain care for their children.
Thanks to the Pontis Foundation’s educational programme, the children are able to acquire a solid educational base.
Because the teachers make home visits, all the members of the family get to understand how to communicate and interact with the child. The Foundation also gives sign-language classes.
The proposed project consists in financing lessons and the teachers’ travel costs for a six-month period.
