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.

Bungee Jump startAfter 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.

Blind School Mar 2012The 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.
