The State Government and local organization worked very hard and identified 276 children with visual impairment, who lost their educational materials, and stationaries due to FANI. 

Now, these 276 students will be given Braille Kits on 1st August 2019. We will send you a detailed report of the distribution with the photographs. We also request you to support us to reach more people with disabilities who are still waiting for help for livelihood.

Dear Donors and Well Wishers

Greetings from BPA!!

We are much delighted to share with you that people with disabilities who have received the assistive devices under this project are very happy, satisfied. These devices have made very good impact on their personal, social, educational, and professional life. 

The students of Nirma University, which is well know university in the state of Gujarat have conducted a study on uses, effectivness and impact of assistive devices. They visited persons with disabilities personally at their home, and collected their views on assitive devices provided to them. It was found during the study that digital hearing aids have made very big impact on school going children. The parents reported that their children have started uttering words, communicate with them and also participate in the school activites which was not happening before. The programmed hearing aids have improve their communication skills as well as allivated their behavior issues which was caused due to communication. We wish to share a success stories of hearing aid campagian that we launched in the state of Gujarat. We aim to provide best quality hearing aids to school going children hence they can learn, educate and build confidence.
