Summary

Since 1999, VOICE Trust has been transforming the lives of physically or mentally challenged children with hearing aids, wheelchairs, braces and other assistive devices. For example, 7-year-old Sanjay was unable to go to school -- or even to the toilet 1 Km away without asking his friends to drag him there on a board. The wheelchair we provided him brought him dignity, independence, and access to an education. Often $100 is all it takes to change a life forever!

Challenge

Poverty, abandonment, social stigma and lack of accessible infrastructure deprive differently abled children of the opportunity to go to school, engage socially and play with friends. They have to depend on their parents or friends to take care of them and help them in the most basic tasks. These children are denied a chance to realize their full potential and are left at the mercy of their circumstances.

Solution

With VOICE Trust's intervention, 120 differently abled children will get access to aids like wheelchairs, braces and hearing aids, along with physiotherapy and mental counseling. The empowerment given by these simple aids is immensely liberating and raises the self-esteem of these children while reducing the burden on their immediate family. Like their friends, they will finally be able to attend school, play sports, and participate in a range of social interactions.

Long-Term Impact

The children you help will be given the opportunity to grow up with pride and confidence to become a full-fledged member of their community. The education that would otherwise be denied them will allow them access to higher-paying jobs that will enrich the whole village. Similarly, their caregivers will be freed to pursue a better job and fuller life. You will have given their lives joy and meaning.
