We have taken up a revolutionary project that has already trained 13 blind/visually impaired women on a first of its kind innovative method from “discovering hands Germany”. This training has enabled visually impaired women to do breast examination for “early detection of breast cancer”. The project has been highly recognized, appreciated, accepted by leading hospitals such as Tata Memorial Cancer Hospital, Mumbai, CK Birla Hospital, Medanta and leading oncologists & gynecologists of India.
Currently we require funds of Rs 8 Lac to train 5 more blind women over 9 months period of training, so that they can significantly contribute towards early detection of cancer through their highly developed tactile sense.
o Mobility training – this helps them stay self-dependent
o Computer skills
o And most importantly – Tactile Breast Examination (TBE) i.e. anatomy of breast, how to examine, breast cancer related topics, women’s anatomy in relation to breast cancer etc.
The Cost estimate of 800000/-: This includes the following major heads over a 9-month full time residential training:
o Stay & Food: 6,000/- per month i.e. total 54,000/-
o Cost towards Trainer’s compensation: 8,000 p.m. i.e. total 72,000/-
o Training Aid & Material: total 6,000/-
o Travel to Internship at hospital: 5,000/-
o In Person test & certification by experts from Germany’s “discovering hands” organization (for their travel to India & stay): 23,000/-
o GRAND TOTAL =1,60,000/- per person
Your support will enable these differently-abled women to NOT SEEK help, RATHER GIVE HELP to our society.
