    Bhartiya Badhir Vidyalaya

    from Lucknow, Uttar Pradesh, India

Bhartiya Badhir Vidyalaya is a school for the under privileged deaf students that teaches Indian Sign Language and all other basic subjects such as Mathematics, Science, Social Science, etc. through Sign Language.

In India deaf students are the most neglected as no formal education system exists for deaf students. Deaf students in India have only two options, either to get admitted in a school for hearing students or to the deaf schools there they are taught through oralism a form of education through lip reading. These forms of education is in practice for the last 70 years and they have failed to empower Indian deaf students, thereby, Bhartiya Badhir Vidyalaya was formed/created to educate Indian deaf students through Indian Sign Language.

In India till date, the Indian Sign Language is not one of the scheduled languages of the country. However, necessary steps are being made to make Indian Sign Language as one of the recoginized languages of the country.

BBV is in existence for the last 4 years, situated at Lucknow, in the state of Uttar Pradesh, India. As on date there are 26 under privileged and Deaf Students between the age group of 5 and 18 pursuing school education. Bharatiya Badhir Vidyalaya follows the NCERT, Government of India Education sylubus, however being taught in Sign Language through qualified and well trained teachers capable of teaching through Sign Language.

In the last one year, the Bharthiya Badhir Vidyalaya has become popular at Lucknow and there are cases of some students who had left the formal education system and has joined Bharthiya Badhir Vidyalaya and is continuing with full confidence and satisfaction.

Bharatiya Badhir Vidyalaya provides Boarding and Schooling for all the deaf students. The School also admits few hearing students who are interested in learning Sign Language and also provides morel support to our deaf students.

Since Sign Language is not recognized by the Government of India, the School could not get any support from government agencies. However, considering the huge benefits of teaching deaf students through Sign Language, like minded individuals helped to establish Bharatiya Badhir Vidyalaya.

Now, Bharatiya Badhir Vidyalaya with its vast experience wishes to support the existing students and to expand by admitting more deaf students to impart school education. Thereby, we the Faculty and the Students of BBV seek your support. Deafness is a disability which is not visible to others and thereby got ignored in empowering the deaf through education.

Your kindness through financial help would bring bright future to many deaf children by providing quality education through Bharatiya Badhir Vidyalaya.

Bharatiya Badhir Vidyalaya is unique in many ways. Kindly make it convenient to visit us at Lucknow to see our deaf children bloom through Sign Language.
