Through the proposed project, a new building for Smt. Ambubai Residential School for Blind Girls shall be constructed on the land located at Gulbarga, Karnataka, India.The building shall comprise two separate floors. The ground floor shall comprise the primary, secondary and high-school to provide education for more than 100 blind girls, whereas the first floor shall comprise their dormitories, library, kitchen, dining hall warden rooms etc.
The school is currently situated at a rented 2 storey building which has inadequate infrastructure for the visually impaired. It's an old building where the safety and security of the girls can be hampered. In addition, given the ever increasing number of applicants each year and considering the fact that the present facility lacks the space to accommodate more girls with seeing disability, HKDW Society needs a permanent and spacious building to be constructed for the school.
As SARSBG is the only school for blind girls in the entire Gulbarga division, HKDW Society plans to reach out to more girls with blindness from the 5 neighboring districts comprising Bidar, Bellary, Koppal, Raichur and Yadgir. The new building will enable us to provide better facilities including spacious classrooms, library, computer training center, laboratories, playground, modular kitchen, dining hall, etc. In addition, the rent amount ($4070 per year) can be utilized for other amenities.
On completion, the building will accommodate more than 100 visually impaired girls enabling them to receive primary, secondary and higher education along with vocational training, computer training, music courses, yoga, etc at any given point in time. Hence, accomplish our overall goal to enhance access to quality education and holistic development opportunities for blind girls and enable their potential for effective participation in the socio-economic process.
