Summary

Our goal at Balajothi is the provide disabled children a caring environment where they can develop and grow into independent and confident adults. Our experience suggests that technology, especially devices like tablets and electronic toys can completely transform the way these children express themselves and interact with the world. With your help, we wish to equip our children and care-givers with these teaching aids.

Challenge

Children with special needs have a lot of difficulty communicating and interacting with others. They also find it very difficult to grasp concepts like numbers and alphabets if they are taught using conventional class room techniques.

Solution

This project will equip our children and care-givers with electronic teaching aids like toys with audio-visual capabilities, lego blocks and tablets. Our experience has shown that these teaching aids completely transform the way children learn and interact. For example, they feel really comfortable with tablets and explore different apps by themselves. They also internalize concepts taught using these aids much more easily.

Long-Term Impact

This project will benefit all of 25 children we train at our facility. In the long run, it will develop vocational skills such as typing and data entry that can help these children find jobs. It will also benefit our care givers.
