When only 5 % out of the four lakh children receive the right to education, a majority of them are deprived of it. The main reason for this is the lack of financial support at the right time and in most cases, also the illiteracy of the parents. Lack of conducive environment is another challenge one is faced with. The helping hand that you now extend to a student, will certainly make him reach great heights. You can act as a catalyst in his life and help him achieve his dreams.


Your support can help a visually impaired earn a Master's degree.Their dream of being educated will be fulfilled.Most of them are first generation learners and this will truly create a positive impact,not only in their lives but also in the lives of many who are in a similar situation.Your donation will benefit the students and in turn,the parents too.It will help in spreading the word to similar deserving candidates.Once a student secured the degree, he can get a job and support his family.

Long-Term Impact

IAB provides education to a student from Grade 6 to Grade12. Following this, he is supported in pursuing his Bachelors degree. With your timely help, he can move on to secure a Masters degree. This will definitely help him go places and achieve his vision of having high standards of education and being employed. Apart from this, his future generations will know the need and the value of education. His standard of living will also improve, which will be useful to him and his family.
