With the generous support of donors such as you,we have constructed 10 toilets and 8 showers for the children at IELC school for the blind. Inauguration of this newly built restroom facility was held in the month of June, and Ms. Ann Moideen was invited for the inauguration. Ms. Ann Moideen stressed the importance of training the children to use the restrooms and with her guidance the school administration has begun to train the children. The facility is now fully functional and 130 children have access to restrooms within school premises and are able to focus on learning from Ann Foundation's team of dedicated volunteers. Thank you! You have made a real difference in the lives of the children that we serve.

The ESL classes for the students with visual impairments in the IELC school, Bargur  started on the 17th of June. The classes were postponed by a government ordered delay due to heat waves. Now, we are conducting nine sessions each week for students in grades IV to XII.

IELC school is now being managed by a new correspondent, Mr. Lawrence Inbaraj, who is not only focused on the educational needs but is also devoted to the overall well being of the children.  On assuming his role as the Correspondent of the IELC School, he brought a huge wave of change, including the cleaning the school premises, planting trees, and renovating the building. In addition, the school has appointed dedicated technical coordinators who are happy to stay beyond their regular work schedule to help us conduct the ESL classes.

With the goal of incorporating improvements to the ESL project, we have revamped the IELC project team and have appointed seven new tutors and a project manager who understand the true value of education. All are committed to this cause and determined to produce positive outcomes. They are also enthusiastic about experimenting with new teaching techniques. The students are all thrilled to meet their new tutors and are having fun in their learning sessions every week. We often experience interruptions caused by power failures and internet connectivity issues, but with the interest of the children, involvement of the tutors and support from the school authorities, the classes are continuing amidst all technical difficulties.

We realize that any educational project must match the needs of the day and hence are in the process of enhancing the curriculum and introducing innovative teaching methods. Soon, we will be conducting ‘train the trainer’ sessions for the tutors to give them more clarity on how best to work with children with visual and hearing impairments.

We are eagerly looking ahead for an academic year of opportunities. Listed below are some of the activities already lined up for the near future:

1.       Personality development classes

2.       Teacher training sessions
