Help our Deaf School to purchase land to have a permanent school place

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.

Dear All,

We have changed our goal amount because we are now aiming to buy land on which we can build our Deaf School. Running the school from a rented premises has its limitations and also the rent paid along with electricity is becoming difficult for us to manage.

We are hence appealing to all donors to support us so that we can have our own place for our Deaf students as we are also a residential Deaf school having hostel facilities as our Deaf students come from different states of India.

We are also updating you all with a short video regarding the same.
Within the next 6 months we require the money to pay for the 5000 sq ft land which we are being offered at rs.500 per sq.ft. This offer has been given to us for a period of 6 months. In a place like Lucknow land price is increasing and land in the city is being sold at rs.1500 to rs.2000 per sq. ft.

But this land which is near Lucknow airport is being offered to us for rs.500 per sq.ft as we want this land for our Deaf school and Deaf students. Thank you

I thank all of you'll for your support till date and with folded hands appeal to you to continue with your donations and support so that we may give a permanent place to our Deaf children. Thank you.

Firstly, we would like to thank all our donors for supporting us and helping our residential Deaf school Bhartiya Badhir Vidyalaya with their kind donations which has helped our students tremendously.
The first time we withdrew part of the funds was for all the students winter uniforms. This we have updated and posted with pictures of the uniforms received and worn by our students. We are ever so grateful for this support as 90% of our students come from the financially weaker section of the society. And we at Bhartiya Badhir Vidyalaya cannot say no to any child seeking admission in our school because saying no to them means denying them an opportunity to educate themselves to lead a life with dignity and security.

At Bhartiya Badhir Vidyalaya we not only cater to residential students but also to day scholars. And it is for all of them that we withdrew part of the funds for their uniforms.

Today we put in a request for withdrawing the funds as we need the money to pay for the monthly groceries for our residential students. This month we failed to get a sponsor for our monthly groceries and hence with the remaining funds we can get food on the table for our students. We also provide snacks for our day scholars during the break time at school. We would love to give them mid day meals but due to the constraint of financial help it is not possible at the moment. But we do try to share what we have, for we believe on an empty stomach a child can never concentrate on studies.

We are enclosing the groceries list, the shop from where we purchase and a photograph of the shop owner with his mobile number. Anyone is free to call and verify the same. The shop owner's name is Brijesh and his mobile number is 6386310888. Brijesh has a heart of gold for he knows the financial difficulties the school faces, and so time to time calls us to make sure we have enough stock in school for the students. But I do refrain from asking him for more till I know I can pay him for the same. But the fact that he calls to ask is more than I can ask for. For in a country like ours, the Deaf are still considered a sin and people refrain or run away from them.

Our school is growing and tomorrow we have another new Deaf child joining our school who is 15 years old and has never been to school. Looking at his siblings all educated he has put his feet down forcing his parents to put him in a Deaf school for all he wants to do now is to study. More on him after tomorrow.

With the number growing we request everyone and their family and friends to donate for books and stationary which is an urgent need.

We will be uploading about each child's background and progress till date in the coming days.

We thank you all with tremendous appreciation for the help you all have given us.

Thank you all and God Bless each one of you.

Dear Supporters,

Thank you! This is Sangeeta and her husband from whose shop we got the uniforms made.
As Bharatiya Badhir Vidyalaya is a new school which is growing slowly but surely, our uniforms are not available in the market. It has to be made on order because of its design and colour.
We are extremely grateful to Sangeeta and her husband who agreed to stitch the uniforms according to the required pieces of two sets per student. Which is not acceptable with other tailors where a minimum of 100 pieces have to be ordered.
We are ever so grateful for this huge support.
