Meet Maya and Babu. Two children we are immensely proud to report are learning well and doing great at school.
Babu - is one of our most gregarious beneficiaries he’s a real character, always the first up to dance at celebrations. It’s easy to forget that he’s actually deaf. Babu has been winning hearts at our rehabilitation centre since he came to us as eight-month-old orphan 6 years ago. Our kids Babu's cheeky face and silly antics because Babu has been placed at a local school for deaf children. A whole new world is opening up to him as he learns more sign language and his first vocalised words. The impact of seeing someone do something so simple as counting from one to ten is breath taking. See Babu finding his voice for yourself in the video here
It’s no mean feat catering to the individual educational needs of the 1000 children who rely on us. Babu is one of 300 children at our rehabilitation centre and Maya is one of 700 beneficiaries who attending our community based slum schools.
Maya's father is a labourer and her mother runs the family home. Their extremely low earnings means school fees were out of the question and Maya was forced to stayed out of school to help with housework. Thanks to the social workers at our slum schools, who make it their business to know when children are missing school, Maya’s absence was noted. Our social worker made a home visit to see how Snehalaya could help Maya’s parents in getting Maya back to school. After supporting with admissions forms and with a vital school grant, Maya now regularly attends 8th standard schooling and is taking the revision seriously by participating at our after school clubs and activities to get extra support.
The reason we can tailor education to suit our 1000 children is largely thanks to the dedication of our staff and by your generous support that we can afford to provide them with the best and most appropriate facilities available. Thank you, you are helping to fund the staff who are looking out to ensure our children get the right educational support they need and empowering families to make the improvements that bring long lasting change for their children.
