Help Employ a Special Educator/Counsellor

Volunteers and Founder/Director of DIKSHA recently met with the Special Needs children at their home in Palam Vihar. Courtney and Yogesh Lalotra are the founders of 'Samarpan Home' which is a refuge for such children and provide 24/7 love and care by their dedicated staff.



Their mission of  “Changing the World One Child at a Time” has much in common with DIKSHA’s mission of “Celebrating Childhood”. Our visit to their home resulted in their return visit to DIKSHA.

 

The children were welcomed by our children and staff alike.


On May 23rd 2018 the Special Needs Children Section of DIKSHA was officially announced. Joining hands with Samarpan Trust has resulted in five special needs children have been enrolled in the school.




This is a landmark event for us especially since it is our 10th year and allowing us to broaden our horizons to help needy children in this area as well. It is a landmark event for the  children themselves as they stepped proudly for the first time into a school in uniforms. 


The need of the hour for us to proceed in the proper direction is the availability of a Special Educator/Counselor. It is felt that the right person will not only be available for the five special needs children but will also be able to assist in helping backward learners and dyslexic children in the school. The total number of children impacted by such an individual will be approximately fifty and perhaps all the 400 children. We are looking for a teacher who is dedicated and passionate about changing the lives of children. This teacher must have qualities like patience, empathy, and an intuitive and calming nature. Organization, creativity, and a diligent work ethics are also crucial traits for the Special Educator position.

Experience and education in the fields of Special Education and/or Psychology is favorable. This teacher will not only be addressing the needs of our five children whom have already been diagnosed with various mental challenges but will also be responsible for providing educational and personal counseling for all students enrolled at DIKSHA and will work with visiting psychologists to address any learning/developmental challenges and implement IEPs (Individualized Education Plan) accordingly.

The teacher must be well-rounded and have good communication skills as they will be responsible for communicating with school teachers, volunteers and staff pertaining to students' needs/IEPs.

In the light of this, we are proposing to support the employment of  Special Educator/Counselor at a monthly remuneration of Rs 15,000 with an annual salary of Rs 1.8 lakhs.

With your support we are hoping this special chapter in DIKSHA will open.

Thank You

Dear Supporters:

We are deeply grateful for your overwhelming response to our Campaign. As a result we have been able to hire a very proficient and caring Special Educator for the special needs children. It is amazing to see the positive changes in the children within just a few weeks and they have blended in wonderfully with the other children. The Special Educator has a very sympathetic and patient attitude and is helping with the personality development of the children. Your generosity is helping her to sustain herself and her travel expenses as she commutes over 30km everyday.

Thank you
With Warmest Regards
The DIKSHA Team
