Amar Jyoti school provides unique opportunities for children with disabilities. For hearing-impaired students like Manish, 9, studying at Amar Jyoti will be a life-changing experience, providing him with an education he couldn’t access at other schools. The direct involvement of the Amar Jyoti teachers has encouraged Manish to take his academics seriously. His teacher notes that he needs constant encouragement to complete his assignments, but his aptitude is increasing at a rapid rate.
It is not just the teachers who are actively involved in Manish’s education; his parents are constant champions for their son. Both of his parents are day laborers who struggle to make ends meet. Yet they regularly attend meetings on Manish’s academic progress. He has made particular strides in math, and his teacher cites the involvement of his parents as key in this improvement.
A gift to sponsor Manish’s tuition at Amar Jyoti not only helps this bright young man, but reaffirms the importance of education to Manish’s parents and the village they come from.
