The Urban Sky Trust, an Eastern Cape initiative was established as a CSI with the objective to IMPROVE the educational facilities for the partially hearing children, EDUCATE the public on the simple fact that the only thing a deaf person cannot do is hear properly as well as the importance of testing the hearing of children at birth and to ASSIST partially hearing children educationally to live a fulfilled life.

Urban Sky works closely with the team of professionals at Greenwood Primary School in Port Elizabeth, the only mainstream educational facility with a Partially Hearing Unit in the Eastern Cape. The Units classes serve hearing-impaired pupils from as young as 3 years old to Grade 7, as well as special class learners who would be unable to cope with the demands in the mainstream of education due to their attendant speech, language and educational problems caused by hearing loss.

The goal in the Greenwood Primary School Partially Hearing Unit is to attend to the hearing-impaired learners special educational needs in small specially equipped and acoustically designed classes. It is envisaged that these learners be re-integrated into the mainstream of education as soon as they have been enabled to cope with their hearing impairment as well as other demands of the normal school syllabus.
