Inclusive education is about embracing all; making a commitment to do whatever it takes to provide each student in the community- and each citizen in a democracy- an inalienable right to belong, not to be excluded. Inclusion assumes that living and learning together is a better way that benefits everyone and not just the children who are labeled as having a difference.
It is this sort of inclusive education that we strive to provide to visually impaired students through our Project Drishti.
After discussions with visually impaired students in our own school and also the students and teachers at the National Association for the Blind, we came to the realization that while inclusive classrooms are very helpful in creating a supportive and empathetic environment for everyone, the visually impaired students are often not able to share the same experiences and activities as others.
Through research we came to the conclusion that visually impaired students need varied tactile tools in place of the regular material that children use in classrooms and are working on creating kits for students of different ages with elements such as tactile geometry boxes sourced form Worth Trust.
We realise that they face problems while learning math because they are unable to understand geometry or use regular geometry boxes.  To solve this problem we sourced  geometry boxes specifically catering to visually impaired students with embossed  markings  suitable for tactile use. We would like your help to provide these geometry boxes to not only the students of our school but also the students who would require it at the National Association for the Blind, Delhi.  
More often than not visually impaired students have to give up maths after class 10th because they are not able to cope up with the syllabus.  Your donation will allow the students to  pursue their dream careers by allowing them a better understanding of a fundamental subject like math.
