Campaign by Samarthanam Trust For The Disabled

Tax Benefits Available

Priyanka is a young girl from in Belgavi, Karnataka. Life has never been easy for her as she was **born visually impaired. Her father was a farmer and the sole earning member of the family. They could not afford to treat her.**She enjoyed learning despite her physical limitations. She allowed nothing to stop her and was regular to school. She completed her PUC and BA in Bengaluru. She aimed for greater heights and was not ready to give up. Unfortunately, **her family did not have the means to support her further.** They did not want to crush her dreams but were unsure how to pay all the added expenses that would come with her education. **When her parents heard of Samarthanam, they approached the organisation for help.** They decided to help Priyanka continue her studies. They provided her with **free accommodation, food, recorded course material and assistance in everyday living.** Thanks to Samarthanam, she completed her MA from Bangalore University. She is an enthusiastic learner and scored first class consistently throughout her education. She knows that none of this would have been possible without Samarthanam's care and support.

About The Program

Samarthanam started the initiative of providing shelter for young students pursuing their education in Bangalore, in an effort to prevent rural students from dropping out of educational institutions owing to financial constraints. Samarthanam provides these students with secure shelter, nutritious food, and safe transportation. Though the hostels were initially opened only for young girls, they now cater to students across gender and age groups. To ensure holistic development of the children in the hostels, the organization also provides them with free tuition and exposure to extracurricular activities. Visually impaired students are also given specially recorded course materials, to help them excel in academics. Samarthanam runs three hostels in Bangalore in HSR Layout and JP Nagar, which can be availed by differently abled, and underprivileged students studying in the city.
