The children’s hostel at Chanho is now complete and ready for occupation by the first group of 35 blind children, with another 20 children due to join soon. The new building was inaugurated by the Bishop of Ranchi on 11th July 2012, marking a major milestone in the construction of an integrated school for blind children at the SRA’s mission near Ranchi in Jharkhand State, India. The Amar Jyoti Trust provided a significant part of the funding for the hostel construction, and we would like to thank all our donors and supporters for making this success possible.
After reading here about the plight of blind children in India, an unusually brave supporter has raised £260 for the Trust through a sponsored 160 ft bungee jump. We are most grateful for this donation which will make a real difference to the lives of the children we are helping in Jharkhand State, India.
The new school and hostel for blind children at Chanho in Jharkhand State, India is making excellent progress with the help of The Amar Jyoti Trust and all of our supporters. The main external structure is complete (compare these photos with the Oct 2011 news update), and work has started on internal plastering and flooring.
More funds are be needed for plumbing, electrics, doors, windows, furniture and equipment, so we can complete the blind children’s hostel as planned in 2012.
Your donation can help give a future to blind children in one of the poorest regions of India.
