Blended Learning for Students with Hearing Impairment

V-shesh and Zaya collaborate to bring online learning to students with hearing impairment


Celebrating Partner Success 
At Zaya, we’re passionate about our partner’s success. Today we bring you a story from our partner in success V-shesh. Radhika, at V-shesh, tells us about the problem space they work in, “Usually in our society hearing impaired or deaf individuals tend to get linguistically excluded from an early stage. While there are some organizations doing exceptional work with deaf children, a large majority of them remain ill-served due to challenges around infrastructure, limited number of teachers, learning materials”

V-shesh, works hard to overcome challenges in learning faced by students with disabilities. They’ve discovered early on, that students and job seekers respond very well to learning with technology.

Enter V-shesh
V-shesh, founded by P Rajasekharan (Raja) and Shashaank Awasthi in 2009, is a unique organization that caters to hearing impaired school children as well as job seekers looking for high quality employment opportunities. V-shesh provides services to People with Disabilities (PwD) in 3 areas:
