 Shaaron Specail School

Ganesh updated that Shaaron Special school has been doing good and has stabilized. Due to this stability they have increased their student capacity from 35 to 50 students. They also have a couple of new students who cannot walk and have to crawl on the floor. Based on the poor physiotherapy equipment and disability assistance equipment, Ganesh had proposed that the school come up with a plan and proposal to fill up this gap during his site visit. The school has provided a proposal for purchasing physiotherapy equipment to improve therapy of the students. Also wheel 2 chairs have been proposed for the children who cannot walk. They have done so after consulting an external expert. This will help 20% of the students who are physically disabled in addition to being mentally challenged.  

Krishna asked if the school had a physiotherapist- Ganesh informed that they have a full time therapist

Sreejit asked if the school is looking for other assistance for funding- There was a discussion around this. Ganesh informed that he has been encouraging the school to work on this front but Miss Prema has been updating him that they have been making efforts but in vain. I think it is probably their location which is not helping. It was decided that we would keep encouraging them and take another status check after 6 months to see how they are progressing on this front.

 Renew funding from from Oct2016- Mar 2017. Funding for teachers salary- Rs 3,20,000

 Extend One time funding for Physiotherapy and handicapped assistance- Rs. 1,77,765

 Total fund disbursal- 497,765 (rounded off to 498,000)

 Krishna requested to check with the school if they can talk to the Bharath Medical and see if they can remove VAT because they are selling the Non profit

New Project 

Sreejit proposed a new project near his parent's home town in Kerala. The proposed project is to provide computer and internet facility in a local library near one of the schools with whom his Uncle works. Currently there is not good internet access to the students of the school and people living around the area. This will help the students browse the internet in the library and take prints. The idea is, instead of purchasing several book, providing computer and internet will help bring a lot of books and knowledge electronically to the area. Everybody like the project in general. Sreejit is going to find out if they have FCRA and in what capacity Asha can help.
