India is suffering under the grips of the pandemic

Introduction 

Our project had just got off the ground and then COVID hit and schools closed and reopened online. With the situation in India getting worse and online teaching kicking off for a second academic online it looks like it might be a few more months before we can get back on track, but this might be a benefit as we are still under our fundraising target to ensure this project has the maximum impact..

Report 

This project pre-covid kicked off at a local school where we work and a large number of the students are registered disabled. The school is seriously under equipped to help these children so we started with the $300 raised to fund a local physiotherapist costing $80 a month to visit the school and run a group and 1:1 sessions with the children. Only after three months did we notice a difference but then COVID hit and the school was forced to close and the costs associated with a physio going to homes is above our current fundraising. 

 

We will continue to actively raise awareness and fun COVID compliant fundraising events so that when the school returns we can reboot our project, we also will take this time to raise funds for resources and equipment for the school and prepare basic training and techniques for the whole teaching staff to be able to introduce elements of support into daily teaching.

 

These children are suffering each day and it is because of your donations we can help them feel a little bit better, thank you for being apart of our project.

Thank you for your support
