Description of the project and the work to be done

We run this special needs children in a rendered House since 2016. It is much difficult to shift the school martials often to change the location. Therefore the committee has decided to raise fund to buy a land to build to school.
At present these children undergo the following activities.
• Basic writing and drawing skills
• Physical exercise
• Basic Computer usage
• Dancing
• How to attend to their daily tasks such as getting ready for school having meals properly, proper toilet usage, personal hygienic etc.
12. We have been advised by the experts that the following too should be introduced, which will further develop their activities.
 Speech therapy
 Vocational therapy
 Counseling
13. Since we have children above the age of 17, we have been advised by the expert in the field to give them vocational therapy training.
1. Therefore, at present we train them cloth carpet weaving using waste cloth purchased from garment factories.
