Carel du Toit Trust and Centre
Where children who are deaf learn to listen and speak
Carel du Toit Trust and Centre offers children with hearing loss (profoundly deaf) the opportunity to learn to listen and speak and integrate into a hearing society. Each year children, aged 0 - 10 years, benefit from the education and health services we provide which are made possible through CSI funding, B-BBEE sponsorships, Trusts and Foundations and individual giving and government support.
Carel du Toit Screening Unit screens 3,400 high-risk babies each year, the CHAT (children hear and talk) Centre guides parents and manages the ear health of children from 0 to 2 and a half years, and the Centre School provides specialist teaching for children aged 3 - 10 years following the CAPS curriculum.
The holistic team around the child monitors the child's progress and development. This team includes the parents (our true heroes), teacher, audiologist, therapists and interventionists.
As a non-profit organisation, with NPO status, we actively work towards eight of the 17 SDG goals and further impact additional SDGs through our association with working partners.
Join the Carel du Toit Trust and Centre circle of friend and donors to become part of the journey of teaching deaf children to listen and speak and to thrive in a hearing society as contributors to the economy.
