This quarter Aaina staff has utilized its financial resources towards providing home based  physiotherapy and academic help to children with disability. Home visits to 12 children with cerebral palsy and mentally challenged  were made. Children with learning disability have been taught to write their names and name of their village and address. Besides children were facilitated in doing their homework given from school. Teachers of the children were also made aware of the specific needs of the children so that they spend quality time in school. Physiotherapy skills were transferred among the parents of the children so that they can help their children in the long run.  The parents of the children also now realize the improvement in their children that is helping them spend quality time in school and maintain their retention. One of the mothers explains “ My child was going to school in spite of having cerebral palsy but he remained isolated. His peers and teachers were also unaware of his specific needs. This bothered him a lot and he refused to go to school every day. But after the discussion of Aaina staff with teachers and their assistance to my child , he is being able to spend more quality time in school. He now goes with his friends to school and hardly skips a day! “

We would like to thank all the donors who have helped us in our efforts. Your contributions not only facilitate in sending children to school but also their retention in school. We now are in the process of developing centers for children with disability in partnership with their schools. The centers will be run by special educators and volunteers who can provide academic assistance to children with specific needs so that they do not drop out.  We would need your support in making the centers operational. We will make you aware as soon as we start it officially. Thanks so much again.

Beautiful changes in life of Sweety have happenedin the life of Sweety and Thank you to you all for that! A 12 year girl with visual impairment and with multi sensory impairment living in a slum with her parents and an elder brother and sister, was totally dependent on her mother for everything. She would sit in one corner of the room 24/7 and was carried by parents for toileting bathing etc. Communication with family was extremely limited.

Sweety, her parents and Aaina staff worked together for 1 year to have a better life for Sweety. Through tactile sign language, developing skills for activities of daily living, and physiotherapy to improve on motor skills, now Sweety communicates with her family about the basic needs such as water, food, and toilet. She can stand and walk and do brushing and grooming with minimum support! Most importantly, she is enjoying Life Better! Her parents are excited and now want to see her walk independently and gain academic skills.This could not have been possble without your support !!!

There are 27 more children like Sweety who are equally willing and carry the same potential to be more independent.  Aaina's State Learning Center for the Children was inaugrated on 27th June, 2017/ . Funds raised from GlobalGiving were used to   equip the Learning Center to provide therapy as well as initate academic skills in the children. 

However children  live in slums and their parents  lack financial  resources to commute to the resource center twice a week.

  • A round trip for  children / day will cost $ 27
  • $55/per week.
  • For 40 weeks (total visits required) $2200..

 A great news is that This years GG Rewards Bonus Day is around the corner from 9:00am to 11:59pm EDT on Wednesday, July 12th.
