About Please support the education of these blind girls from the slum area
I have been working with school as a volunteer and donor since last 8 years. I have seen these blind girls becoming confident and independent in front of my eyes. Antarjyoti Balika Vidyalaya, (AJBV) is a free residential school exclusively for blind girls ranging in ages of 6-18, ran by the Bihar Netraheen Parishad (BNP), in an economically ruined state; Bihar, India. The majority of these young girls were born with visual defects that limits their ability to provide for themselves. Many are left helpless by society and family members. There is no social infrastructure for the blind in Bihar, nor any program offered to these young girls. But with your donations, AJBV can change all of that. The sole purpose of AJBV is to bring these girls into the mainstream and train/teach them to be self-sufficient. When these young girls are forced out by family and society, there is no other alternative than to seek refuge in places unimaginable. We want to offer them a safe haven, free meals, a place to stay until they complete school (10th Grade) and life skills to help them become self-sufficient. At AJBV, they have access to books in Braille, computers, and activities such as art and yoga. They are met constantly with encouragement and to become better at what they do by competing with their peers. It is an environment filled with the innocence of childhood and the optimism of youth. The school provides a family environment of communal eating, laughing, music, dancing, a chance to feel secure and whole. Some of which have never experienced. Currently, this school is serving 110 students but this number continues to grow. As they expand so does the need to re-evaluate our scope to accommodate the growing number of young girls with visual disabilities. All the funds we raise will be used for creating an endowment so that the operating cost of the school is cover for ever. We are also planning to build a library and a playground for these children. Indeed, to educate a girl is to secure the future. We encourage you to join us in our quest to help these visually disabled children live dignified and fruitful lives – lives filled with love, laughter, and peace. Let us together help them dare to dream and reach attainable goals by donating what you will. These girls need second chance in life...
