Project 18: Supported Eleven Visually Impaired Students to continue their D.Ed. Special Education (Visual Impairment) Course
Give a man a fish you have fed him for today…teach a man to fish you have fed him for a lifetime…!!!
Inspired by this quotation, on 09-June-2016, W.H.Y. Foundation has supported Eleven Visually Impaired Students to continue their D.Ed. Special Education (Visual Impairment) Course at NATIONAL INSTITUTE FOR THE VISUALLY HANDICAPPED – REGIONAL CENTRE – POONAMALLEE – CHENNAI, TAMIL NADU.
Due to non-affordability to pay the 4th semester examination fees, they had no option but to lose hope of completing their education.
One of the students who we helped previously with hearing aid contacted W.H.Y. Foundation for helping him and his friends to continue their education. Based on our verification and post we visiting the institute and personally speaking to all students, W.H.Y. Foundation decided to help all Eleven Visually Impaired Students to continue their education and released an amount of 13,300/- rupees towards their 4th semester examination fees.
Tanks to all the donors and supporters.
