Hear Hear for Bhutan’s objects under our Constitution are as follows:

The Company is established to be a charity whose purpose is to advance the health and well-being
of Bhutanese people with hearing impairment, and to advance this purpose:

(a) to provide training and reference material for medical professionals for the
diagnosis, treatment and/or management of hearing impairment and to achieve
compliance with World Health Organisation standards for detection and
treatment of hearing impairment in infants

(b) to raise money to purchase equipment for hospitals and medical centres for the
diagnosis and treatment of hearing impairment

(c) to assist medical professionals in surgical techniques to rehabilitate hearing

(d) to provide hearing aids and similar devices for children and adults and training in
their prescription and use

(e) to support the preparation and professional development of teachers in Bhutan
so as to improve general literacy and hence life opportunities for hearing
impaired young people

(f) to liaise with health and educational authorities in Bhutan in pursuing these
purposes and to monitor their achievement.

Our brochure features the work we have done with hearing-impaired children at the Wangsel Institute in Bhutan.  We have also introduced phonics-based teaching to pre-primary children throughout Bhutan, with the teaching method to be extended to Year 1 to 3 children progressively in the next three years.  This brochure features that aspect of our work which will enable hearing-impaired children to learn to read and speak more easily.
