Why am I fundraising?
It’s an initiative by Simply Live along with parents of children with Special needs in Ashoknagar, an small town in district North 24 Parganas of West Bengal.
As there was no school & proper infra structure available for such Children in our area & Government & Private school are reluctant to give admission to such children hence We started this school Ashoknagar Ashar Alo in 2014 & currently we have 18 special children & our aim is to:
To impart intensive specialized training to students with mental retardation and other cognitive disabilities.
• To make students self-reliant, helping them develop various life skills, and wherever possible, providing vocational training.
• To integrate special students into the mainstream of life.
• To provide support and guidance to parents and family members of students with special needs.
• To create and enhance public awareness and understanding of cognitive disabilities, and to promote positive interactions between the general public and those with mental retardation.
What do I plan to do with the funds?
We are desperately looking for funds to run the school & upgrade facilities; currently its 100% funded by parents & it’s getting very tough to manage day to day operations.
We require funds for School Building & Infrastructure & monthly salary for trained Teachers & support staff.
We are open for any queries & to provide fund utilization report to both individual or corporate donations provided on a monthly basis.
We also welcome individuals or corporates to visit our school.
We will be more than happy to address any further queries from anybody. You can reach us at +918159060542
