No to disabling hearing loss; Yes to Education

We at Kishore Chandra Prasad Research Foundation (KCPRF), aim at reaching out to maximum number of children afflicted with disabling hearing loss, through our many projects such as Operation Sunshine and Gift-a-Hearing. We are also partnered with Government of India-approved ADIP centers to maximize our reach, make hearing aids/implants affordable and extend our helping hand.

ADIP SCHEME
 (Govt of India Initiative)

The Government of India launched the scheme of Assistance to Disabled Persons for Purchase/fitting of Aids/Appliances (ADIP) with effect from April, 2005. The Ministry of Social Justice and Empowerment implements the ADIP by providing grant-in-aid to the NGOs and other executive agencies of the Centre/State Governments with the aim of reducing the effects of disabilities, and, enhancing the economic potential of the disabled persons by bringing suitable, durable, scientifically manufactured, modern, standard aids and appliances within their reach.

There is provision of Cochlear Implant for 500 children per year with Hearing disability with a ceiling of Rs. 6.00 lakh per unit under the Scheme. This will result in providing life long relief for hearing impaired children in the age group of 0 to 5 years.

Around 880 successful Cochlear Implant surgeries have been done by various empanelled hospitals across India and we are proud to announce that Bangalore Hearing and Implant Institute, in association with  Apollo Spectra Hospitals has been listed as one of the hospital empanelled for cochlear implant surgery under ADIP scheme in February 2021.
