• Blind School Project in Barugur, TN, India

    Donation : / $11,000

    This year, we have a special project, and that is to provide restroom facilities for the 130 blind and visually impaired children in Barugur, TN, India.

    Imagine, having to live, learn or work in a place where there is no access to a clean or safe bathroom or toilet. Because of this lack of access, these 130 blind and visually impaired children from the IELC School for the Blind continue to suffer discomfort, embarrassment and the mad dash to a distant facility. They are challenged to overcome the distance from the school to the dormitory for their one daily restroom break.  As a result, they holding back for hours or waiting until the end of the day. There are also health implications to “holding it in” – learning too is compromised when students are so uncomfortable. This has fueled Ann Foundation to appeal to  donors and well-wishers to assist in creating a better and safer environment for the IELC students.

    Ann Foundation will be helping the school build toilets. The school was originally built without them. The estimated cost of building 10 toilets (5 for the girls, 5 for the boys) is around $ 11000.00 dollars. This amount will provide for the new toilets, along with the building construction, plumbing and electrical work required.

    No amount is small!! A dollar can make a world of difference for the children!!

  • Institute for Handicapped and Backward People (IHBP)

    Donation : / $6,000

    The Ann Foundation is currently looking to raise money for the Institute for Handicapped and Backward People (“IHBP”).  Established in Calcutta, India, in 2001, IHBP is a socially responsible, non-profit organization assisting needy, poor, and differently abled children and young adults.  IHBP has around 100 students.  In addition to providing a formalized, secular curriculum, IHBP aims to provide various therapeutic activities in order to integrate students with special needs into mainstream schooling.  The Institute runs vocational training courses and workshops too in order to assist adults gain employment skills – complementing this is a unit for employment and rehabilitation for differently abled women.  Here’s a link to IHBP’s website: http://www.ihbp.org.in

    It’s our aim to make IHBP financially autonomous by funding a poultry farm which will provide the School with an independent revenue stream.  The cost of the project is approximately $6000.  The poultry farm is to be run entirely by IHBP for its own benefit with the Ann Foundation taking a mostly advisory role.  This, we believe, will allow IHBP to become independently secure and mould its own identity and future.

    Your contribution will make a difference in the lives of these children and young adults. Moreover, your generosity will not only benefit the single needs of a child but also, their community.  No amount is too small as just $1 takes us one step further in helping these dedicated students.  Please consider giving to this cause.
