Dear Donors, Well Wishers,

Greetings from BPA!!

Thank you very much for your very kind-hearted support for our project. With your support, we were able to reach out very needy blind students in FANI affected areas in Odhisa. We have provided supports to the blind students, and they are very happy to receive braille kits. They use them properly and help them in getting an education. If we had not provided these braille kits to these students with visual impairment, no relief agency would have thought to provide them. It was great to help them. 

We have completed the project, and there is no further need for intervention. Hence we close this project. We are very thankful to you for your support.  We look forward to your support in future. 

 

Thanking you

Bhushan Punani

Coastal villages got submerged underwater. Nearly 11 lakh people have been evacuated, and were in shelter homes. 14 districts affected; 16659 villages affected 15.09 million people affected; 41 people lost lives; 5 lakhs House affected; 30 lakhs Livestock dead; 1031 Public health facilities, 6061 educational institutions damaged

A braille kit contains basic educational devices for learning braille, arithmetic, geometry, etc. Students have lost their assistive devices during cyclone FANI. The project will lead to academic excellence and all-round development of 273 students.

Blind Peoples Association (BPA), Ahmedabad has mobilized resources from Global Giving and from local donors to support the education of students attending school and colleges. 109 girls and 164 boys studying and various special schools have received the kits.

The programme was conducted in collaboration with the Department of Social Security & Empowerment of Persons with Disabilities (SSEPD), Government of Odisha. Distribution of kits was organized on 2nds August at Nimapada Town Hall and Nehru Seva Sangh, Banapur. At Nimapada, the chief guest of the event, Shri Samir Ranjan Dash, Honorable Minister of School and Mass Education, has distributed braille kits to students. The event was graced with the presence of Shri. Nitin Chandra (IAS), Principal Secretary-SSEPD; the veteran freedom fighter and former MP Padmashree Bhabani Chandra Pattnaik, and Shri.

The Principal and staff of College for the Blind and Diploma College of Special Education have shared their gratitude to BPA and CBM India Trust for the diligent support extended at the time of need. Sannyashai Kumar Behera, DSSO-Headquarters, SSEPD has distributed the kits at Nehru Seva Sangh. He has thanked team BPA for the kind donation enabling children with visual impairment to pursue their education. 

Then, we have visited Leprosy Colony which is badly affected, the houses got badly damaged, and people with leprosy live in a very miserable condition. These leprosy-affected people are still stigmatized. We request you to support us to help them in building the roof. We require 300 metal sheets for roof construction. The estimated costs is $3529 for 300 metal sheets. We look forward to your continuing support.  

 

Thanking you once again for your generous support.
