The Hearing House A First Voice Centre

Sponsoring a child through The Hearing House programme is a very popular way of donating to The Hearing House because the sponsor has a direct impact on the child’s life. As a result of the sponsors support the child will be able to attend The Hearing House programme and gain the gift of spoken language. The sponsor will also be able to participate in the child’s journey at The Hearing House if they wish.

The Hearing House Child Sponsorship Programme is flexible to suit your needs. You can choose to have an active sponsorship and visit our centre and see your sponsored child take a lesson or playing in our purposely designed preschool. We can also send you regular reports on your child’s progress. Otherwise, you can have a less active sponsorship, satisfied with the immense satisfaction that you had a huge impact on the future of a child, their happiness, their success and their contribution to society. Here is a full list of what we offer you:

  • An opportunity to meet your sponsored child and his/her parents.
  • Written reports, including photographs, on the progress of your child
  • An opportunity to view your child during an Auditory-Verbal Therapy session.
  • An invitation to attend your child’s graduation to celebrate the successful outcome of your child’s learning programme.TOO CUTE
