We will be able to replace Manuela's current hearing aids which no longer work. Manuela can hardly hear with her current devices anymore, due to her progressive hearing loss. It is also difficult for her to communicate and she is tending to isolate herself more, which greatly affects her educational performance and communication with her family and friends.
the problem: With the voluntary contributions of the people who join the cause, Fundacion Oyeme will help Manuela adapt to a new pair of state-of-the-art hearing aids, and will guarantee the support and monitoring of her hearing and communication development.
Manuela will regain her independence. Her oral communication and comprehension will become more fluid, and her education will be simpler and more accessible. Manuela's life will retake its course towards her personal and professional fulfillment, preventing Manuela from isolating herself from the world and the people around her.

Every microproject is intended to use the donations it receives in accordance with its stated description; however, it is important to provide project leaders with the flexibility to maximize the potential benefit from the donations they receive. This means that your donation may be used as a part of the main project that supports this microproject, specifically Hearing screenings to detect childhood deafness. In this event, the project leader is required to post an update to the microproject detailing the results and reasons behind this change.
If you or any other donor is unhappy with the way their funds have been used, he or she can reallocate their donation using the GlobalGiving guarantee.
