We are glad to introduce SAKSHI, identified in 2016 as a child with deafblindness , she was a shy child and only wished to stay at home, like other kids school was hell to her but our Special Educators held her hand and paved her way to school now she has a Secondary School Certificate with 52.25% .Home based services brought out the Chef inside her as she cooks Maggi , Tea by herself. Vocational trainers helped her learn paper cutting, gift wrapping etc.
She now recognizes money and We are surprised to see her handling her imitation jewelry shop.
Our dream is to see Sakshi flying high and we are ready to stretch our strings with her…
