"SPONSORSHIP FUND"

In 2010, the School took the initiative of setting up a Sponsorship Fund. The ultimate aim is to build a corpus large enough to cover, from the interest earned , the cost of education of children from financially underprivileged families. The cost of educating a deaf child in India is approximately Rs 3,000 (USD 60) per month. A large number of our students are unable to afford even half of that amount. Over the years, we have stuck by the principle that no hearing impaired child should be denied the right to education due to financial reasons. This, while noble in intent, has often placed us in a severe financial predicament.

It is only due to our countless well-wishers and sponsors that we have been able to keep the School afloat in the face of this obvious financial inequity. Among several others, we are grateful to two of our primary sponsors, the International Monetary Fund, Washington, and the Sir Dorabji Tata Trust, Mumbai, whose largess has enabled us to provide to all our children uniform high quality digital hearing aids. This considerably facilities teaching, and enhances our students' quality of life.

However, in spite of the generosity of our donors, we still have a long way to go before we are financially stable. And in an environment of rising costs, it is only by reaching out to more well-wishers that we will build a self-sustaining financial model.

If you would like to support this initiative, do reach out to us at osdc@theoralschool.in.

Every little helps. You can make a difference….
