About us

Kentalis International Foundation is the international project office of Royal Kentalis. Our team operates as a knowledge broker, linking the deafness and hard-of-hearing expertise of Kentalis to the specific needs of our partners.

Kentalis International Foundation was established in 2010 with the goal of continuing Kentalis' international efforts after merging. It is an independent foundation with non-governmental status, but it receives support from its parent organization, Royal Kentalis.

Our goal is to provide fair and high-quality education and care to everyone. To make this happen, Kentalis International Foundation cooperates with academic institutions and organizations in the field of hearing and communication to train professionals.

Deaf education

Our primary focus is on improving the education for individuals who are deaf or hard-of-hearing in low and middle-income countries (known as the Global South). To achieve this, we collaborate with universities, teacher training colleges, organizations that support individuals with disabilities, and government entities. Read more in our corporate brochure.
