We invite you to join I Hear You Inc. in making a profound and lasting impact on the lives of children by becoming a Sponsor. My Aunt Cis played a pivotal role in my life as my Point of Light, and her influence continues to resonate with me today. She demonstrated unwavering dedication to volunteering and supporting the Deaf and Hard of Hearing community. Prior to my migration to the US, Aunt Cis recognized my hearing loss and tirelessly devoted herself to helping others in need.

Working at the University of Toronto in the science and medical library, Aunt Cis interacted with individuals facing various disabilities, which further fueled her commitment to make a difference. She recognized that individuals with hearing impairments often received less attention, as their physical and mental capabilities might not immediately indicate their struggles. Determined to address this imbalance, she pursued formal education in sign language and became a certified sign language interpreter. Amelia (Cis) Sylvester was a graduate of Anglican High School in St. George's, Grenada, West Indies.

Auntie Cis took direct and impactful actions to assist not only me but also many other individuals with diverse abilities. Her support, generosity, and active involvement made a tremendous difference in my life and in the lives of countless others. She was an inspiration, a motivator, and an empowering presence throughout my journey. She served as both a confidant and one of my strongest supporters. Although Aunt Cis will not witness the accomplishments of this organization or have the opportunity to experience the pages of my book or feel my love, her presence will always be deeply felt.

Not everyone is fortunate enough to have an Aunt Cis in their lives, but through your sponsorship, you can ensure that differently-abled children receive the help and recognition they truly deserve. Your support can create tangible and meaningful change today. We sincerely thank you for being a catalyst in making a difference.


I Hear You Inc. is asking individuals, families, and business owners alike to become a sponsor for a differently-abled child. All children should have the opportunity to live a happy and functional life, and receive the education, accommodation, and assistance that they need to succeed. It is our vision to encourage positive action and direct change within communities, and to improve the lives of individuals who have a disability or impairment. Become a sponsor today, and you can help a child to get the necessary medical and modified adaptive assistance that they need to attain an education, to live a productive life, and to function in the mainstream of society. In addition, to avoid social, emotional and behavioural difficulties, we encourage and foster an inclusive model that will facilitates academic learning, but most importantly facilitates learning to adapt and live in a social world and diverse world. Keep in mind that children with social difficulties experience barriers in contact, play, and interaction with other peers and they are not prepared for reality in the real world.
