Help Generate Income to Educate a Blind Child

by Jeevan Prakash Education Society


This project will establish a permanent income source through an Integrated Dairy Farm for Asha Deepa School for the Blind to meet its day to day operating expenses thereby become self sustainable & self funded organisation within a year. The rationale behind taking up this project is to create a permanent income source for Asha Deepa School for the Blind that benefits more than 50 children in the current year and helps further expansion of the school activities.

Since inception, Asha Deepa has not received any grant from either state govt or central govt of India for its activities. The major source of funds for Asha Deepa so far is from Asha for Education, few institutions and individuals. There is a great need to have regular and non-stop cash flow to meet the school expenses through internal income generation activities. Therefore, we propose to establish a Dairy Farm to support our expenses. The project is partly funded by Asha, USA.


Through dairy farm, Asha Deepa produces Milk as a main product and cow dung & cow urine as by-products. The income generated through sale of milk and by products of dairy farm will be used to support Asha Deepa's operational expenses. The project generates an average of $ 700-800 per month through sale of milk and by products.

Long-Term Impact

The project will educate 150 blind children in the next three years without external funding support & allowing the school to become self funded organisation.
