Special School – for Differently Able Children
at Sewadham Ashram, Ujjain (MP)
We invite all Corporate Houses, Individuals and Philanthropic donors to come forward and help differently abled children who aspire for a brighter future for their education and help in strong Nation building. We humbly appeals you to join hands with us to effectively implement the Right to Education act for these unfortunate abandoned special children.
Since 1989 Sewadham Ashram (Main unit of Ujjaini Senior Citizen’s Forum, Ujjain) has been engaged in providing services like safe shelter, education, medical support, health care, nutritious food, safe drinking water, personal hygiene, healthy and hygienic environment to disabled and mentally ill children, abandoned by their own family and the society.
Sewadham Ashram is a non-partisan organization working to create a positive and enduring change in the lives of these unfortunate children living almost non-existent life in abject poverty and undue inequality. Irrespective of religion, caste, creed, race, ethnicity or gender, Sewadham extends a helping hand to anyone and everyone who deserve it.
For many children in need, hopelessness is a constant presence in their lives. Their lives do not hold much promise for a bright future; they are lost to education and other forms of development. All they need is someone to believe in their dreams and give them a chance for a better future. Through Sewadham Ashram – Special School, you can be the ray of hope in a child’s life which will provide child with access to education.
These destitute children are found in homeless, helpless conditions around railway station, bus stand, footpath, hospitals, temples and other public places are referred at Sewadham Ashram through various channels like district collectors, MP’s, MLA’s, Child Line, police, local administration, other NGO’s and other social welfare organizations, renowned dignitaries through District Child Welfare Committee.
Most of them are physically or mentally challenged (MR, CP, MI) suffering from chronic illnesses. These special children also include children of wed, un-wed mentally ill mothers who are resident of our ashram. They all are provided safe shelter and care here at Sewadham in – Shri Ramkrishna Balgraha & Maa Sharda Balika Graha (sparate Children Home for boys and girls). Presently we are serving 125+ children in our children home, out of which about 100 are of 6-18 years age group.
We are running “Ankit Vinay Vihar School” – Sewadham (Registered under Child Education Act 2009 section 18 of MP State Govt) in the Ashram premises. Our organization is also registered with National Trust, Social Justice Department and Women & Child Welfare department for providing services to challenged inmates.
Our main aim is to provide education & training in proper manner to these unfortunate kids for their bright future and careful upbringing. Presently apart from routine education we are regularly conducting vocational, yoga, music, art, cultural and special training programs and camps for these suffering special kids including participation in various social and cultural events within and outside Ujjain helping their overall mental / physical growth and development. Indoor and outdoor activities are part of their regular activities.
To achieve our philanthropic goal in the interest of society and Nation building, we propose to construct aprox 4000 sq.ft. building for our existing Education & Training Center on the 1st floor of existing Physiotherapy center. The location of the building is strategically planned as physiotherapy is essential and must for children’s with physical ailments and will be part of their training center.
The center would facilitate around 50 students. We propose to provide education, special and vocational training in the same building with facilities like audio-visual sessions, one to one and group studies for children’s overall growth & development. Ultimately this would lead to their rehabilitation in the real sense. As we all know children are our future Nation builder and hence our aim is to strengthen the base and help in shaping their future.
Further, we aim to reach more and more children in the nearby rural areas who are deprived of education due to their financial status or family background. We intend to run a full- fledged Special School and Training center for the needy section of the society and brighten their future life by contributing in their growth by imparting proper education and required training. This will surely make them self dependent empowering them to live respectfully with dignity and helping them to become a part of main stream of the society.
For the purpose of Education and Training center, we have 32 seater school bus donated by SBI under CSR. This vehicle is exclusively utilized for education and training purposes for Ashram residents and nearby rural kids.
