Desks and Chairs donation

This academic year beginning June, Ann Foundation resumed the ESL classes for the children at IELC. A handful of new volunteers have also joined hands with us in this meaningful journey and we happily welcome them on board. The students at IELC and the volunteers are equally excited and thrilled at the prospect of this purposeful interaction.

We face technical barriers and running the classes seamlessly is not an easy task but the tutoring team is very determined and despite all odds we are able to move forward. I am sure that slowly we will achieve our goal of imparting all the children at IELC with the language skills necessary for facing competition in the modern society.

We are also evaluating the possibility of adding Personality Development sessions and are in the process of gathering all the necessary information, to make it happen.

Having recognized the fact that the furniture used by the children at IELC is worn out and rather uncomfortable, Ann Foundation took a giant leap of faith, by reaching out to its friends and referrals for help. Soon the foundation was able to raise sufficient funds for buying desks & chairs. These chairs and desks were then donated to the students of IELC.  The school correspondent and the students were very touched by this action of all the donors and Ann Foundation.

We are looking forward to a purposeful and motivating year ahead and hope to make a tiny difference in the lives of the adorable children of IELC.

Sustainable Income generation activity

With the beginning of a New Year, we have had some new members join our team. With their innovative ideas, experience and diverse knowledge, we are striving to make our project more efficient and fruitful to the children at IELC. We are continuing to have several challenges in seamlessly conducting the classes and have had many disruptions but the tutors are relentlessly focused, patient and committed to overcome the day to day challenges and march forward. 

As an income generation opportunity for the school, Ann Foundation raised funds and the foundation has set up an organic dairy cattle farming operation for the IELC school. The project also has provided support for proper shelter, cattle-feed and vaccinations for the donated cows.The revenue generated through the sale of milk, will provide an ongoing source of income to maintain the school and has provided employment opportunity for the women in the community.

Tutors' visit to IELC school

Ann Foundation has made huge progress in the way ESL classes are conducted at the IELC school. With the support of the school corespondent, Mr. Lawrence Inbaraj and the technical coordinators that he has appointed, the IELC project team has overcome major technical challenges. The team has introduced several interactive teaching techniques that keep the students interested and engaged. These new techniques have made the teaching process more effective and fun-filled.

Two of our project tutors visited the school and spent an entire day with the kids. This visit has enabled us to strengthen our relationship with the school and also has rekindled personal connection with the kids.

The IELC team of tutors were provided a training on 'How to connect better with the visually challenged kids' by Ann K Parsons, a professional tutor and founder of Portal Tutoring.

We believe that this initiative of providing ESL classes to the students of IELC school will become a true success only if English speaking becomes a regular practice for these kids. So we also have arranged for a weekly ESL session for the school teachers of IELC.

We would like to express our thanks to everyone who dedicate their time & skills towards this project.

Donate and/or spread the word about our projects and you will be positively touching the lives of several visually challenged children.
