Our club is very active in Global Grants, we are only 8 years old, and we did a good number of GG, here in Brasil and outside. Please verify the list of our GG attached.
Now we have a new project called " Social Inclusion for Deaf Persons"
The objective of this Global Grant is to finance the deafness treatment for this persons without resources.
In our regions we have 3.000 persons without financial resources detected like deaf, waiting for their treatment.
In Brasil the health system should be give free of charge the deafness treatment, but unfortunately the system doesn´t have enough money for paying all treatments. In this way we have a waiting line with this 3.000 persons, they are waiting for his time. In some cases the time could be until 14 years long.
With this project financed by our clubs and rotary foundation, we will have an opportunity to include some of these persons for a regular social life. They will do a very easy thing for us " to listen".
The treatment is composed by the following tests and appointment:
2-Selection and test for hearing aid

6-Hearing Aid delivery appointment and tests
The costs of each treatment is around US$ 400,00.
We intend to treat around 200 persons, Project total ammount US$ 80.000,00
