SEDB is a registered NGO, established to provide support to people with Deafness and Deaf-blindness in India.

At present the organization operates in Nasik, within the state of Maharashtra. The organization was founded with a young energetic team of professionals, including deaf and deafblind persons, with different experience and abilities. Since its inception, it is engaged in remote areas with communities, spreading values to reinforce the development initiative of persons with disabilities (PwD).

The organization has been instrumental in extension of services to benefit the marginalised and disadvantaged communities in remote rural areas through successful pilot models, with the active involvement of the community through voluntary support.
