Level the Playing Field for Children with Disabilities

Tax benefits


Studies have shown that more than 95% of children are enrolled and are in school. A majority of the remaining 5% are those with varying types and severity of disabilities. This is because schools are not inclusive enough to address the learning needs of these children. We, at Prajayatna, have been trying to ensure that these children are enrolled in school and have been quite successful at it, having identified and enrolled over 1000 children to-date. Yet, they seem to find difficulty in learning due to lack of training of the teachers to address their special needs of which one of the major hindrances is the lack of accessible teaching-learning aids.

We have initiated a Quality Learning Initiative called Kalikayatna to ensure quality education for ALL children through a comprehensive pathway involving different educational stakeholders and learning which is organic, inclusive and child-centric in nature. It focusses on building the abilities of the child, rather than the disabilities. Watch this video for details:
 

And in order to cater to the children with disabilities, we have partnered with Tactopus Learning Solutions, who make multisensory inclusive learning products, specifically to cater to the unique needs of these children.

Given that schools are opening post the lockdown in a month, we are looking to raise INR 5,00,000 for a pilot program across 35 schools in Uttar Pradesh and 9 schools in Karnataka. This fund will provide each of these 44 schools with one Inclusive Learning Kit consisting of 10 STEAM products each, for those children with special needs for accelerated learning through multi-sensory tech-enabled products.

Every rupee donated will go towards funding learning materials, instructional aids, training and capacity building of the various stakeholders and help students and teachers in these government schools to achieve their maximum potential.

In addition, Tactopus has found us a donor to match 40% of every rupee that will be donated by you!

You will also be eligible for tax exemption for your donation amount, under Section 80G.

Come, be a part of our Mission Inclusion!

Watch how Tactopus is solving the problem of unequal access to learning for children with disabilities:

Dear Supporters & Well-wishers,

While the world has turned into a dark confusing place, YOU have been a ray of hopeful sunshine :) Our month-long fundraiser has officially ended and we are happy to announce that we achieved our goal!
 
Yours and the donations of the 118 other donors totaling to INR 5,29,990 via the fundraising platform of Milaap, will be used to purchase accessible learning materials, and for the training of school teachers to learn how to include children with special needs in their classrooms and provide equal learning alongside their peers. Thus leveling the playing field for these children with disabilities :)

As promised, Tactopus will support 36 additional schools over the initial 44 planned, taking our total up to 80! We at Prajayatna will ensure the execution of this project in low-income schools in Karnataka and Uttar Pradesh, in India.
 
If you wish to help create more inclusive schools, you can support or share this link with friends and family: https://tactopus.com/sponsor/
 
We will send you an update once schools re-open and the children have received their learning aids. Please do let us know if you have any further questions about your donation, its usage, or our work in general.

Thank you once again. You are indeed AWESOME!
