Challenge

In India it is a challenge to provide housing to handicapped girls,. To resolve this problem, a charity organization called Dharithree in India plans to build girls accommodation facility measuring 2750 sq. ft. at a cost of $ 85,000. Dharithree has acquired land measuring 5.5 acres in Narasipura village near Bangalore. We are planning to gather an amount of $35,000 from GG

Solution

Handicapped girls in Indian villages currently do not have separate accommodation if they want to stay near school. By building this hostel and providing adequate security for them, they will also be empowered and will have a chance to participate in the joy of common humanity

Long-Term Impact

Dharithree with financial help from various organizations and individuals has built the following buildings at its flagship facility in Narasipur village near Bangalore India for differently abled children. Day school, Physiotherapy block, Audiometric block, Dance/Music therapy block and a large kitchen with an open veranda that can also be used for training health care workers.
