Empowering Visually Challenged !

Dear Friends,

Greeting from Asha Deepa School for the Blind!

It is been eight years since our first child brought to school. In 2003, Mr. Sanju Kumar along with his younger brother who is also blind started this school in a small building with three children. Today, there are 40 plus children studying in the school from rural villages. It is only because all of YOU. Your generosity has helped us to grow from three children to 40 plus children.

 Activities at School:

Children at Asha Deepa learn Braille technique, Braille reading/writing, math’s, general knowledge along with thir regular state Govt syllabus. Along with education, they also learn living skills such as grooming, bathing; combing and walking etc. three students have completed their 7th standard and successfully admitted in a normal school for their higher study.

 Celebration: 

Independent Day was celebrated on 15th August. The chairman, AFWA was the chief guest of the day. Various competitions were conducted for the benefit of children in the school. Four Volunteers from Air force have joined the school as volunteers on this day. They visit the school every Sunday and teach English.

Parents Meet: 

The parents meet was organized in the month of August to discuss various issues related to their children education, boarding facility, food quality etc. Almost all the parents were present in the meeting.

Dairy Project:

Since inception, we depend on donors and supporters like you. We have come so long because of your support, love and care. In future, we want to be self sustain-that means supporting our expenses on our own. Therefore, we are in the process of setting of dairy farm. The income generated from the dairy farm (sale of milk) will be used to support the school operational expenses. We have raised 20% of our project cost. Any contribution to this project is greatly appreciated as this enables us to be “self supporting” organization.

 Thank you once again for all your support. 

Sanju Kumar
