The new school at Chanho will initially take 50 blind children, with scope to expand further. In line with the Indian government’s plan for Inclusive Education, children with disabilities will be integrated wherever possible into mainstream education. The presence of a normal middle school and a vocational training centre on the same site will help to achieve this vision. Many of the teachers in the blind school are SRA sisters, who live very simply. This helps to make the costs sustainable.
This project deserves your support because:
- The SRA has an excellent track record in educating the blind
- They are working in a region where there a great unmet need
- The benefits are long-lasting and the need is urgent
You can provide hope and opportunity for a blind child.
