A small group of people has truly made a difference in the life of Ragini, a five year-old girl with down syndrome. When she started at school she was unable to concentrate unless a teacher was directly interacting with her, helping her learn new skills. She could not sit still. She was hesitant to mix with other students.
Slowly, the gifted teachers at Amar Jyoti school have helped Ragini come out of her shell. She is becoming more social and her motor coordination is improving, such that she is now able to fill a bag with blocks. Amar Jyoti school is really helping Ragini.
She still faces one major obstacle, however: her family cannot afford her school fees.
Megha, Sneha, Hazel, Sameer, Bruce and Brian all donated tuition to Amar Jyoti school. These gifts were combined to sponsor a full year of tuition for Ragini. She now can continue to receive the specialized attention she requires at school.
When we work together we can make a difference!
