  • Exploring individual donor options for university scholarships, including academic reports and tuition details.
  • Coordinating with consulting doctors for detailed medical reports in medical case management and following up on potential consultations.
  • Recommendation of physiotherapy initiatives and retaining an occupational therapist.
  • Identifying and hiring special needs teachers and tutors for educational support.
  • Provision of household appliances such as generators, washing machines, etc.
  • Provision of a bus for safe movement and the repair of existing bus.

Our efforts extend into education, healthcare, and the overall well-being of children, as well as to the sisters who have dedicated their lives to the needs of the children. We understand that every child is a beacon of hope, and we desire to build their future.

We are delighted to share an insightful glimpse into our recent monitoring and evaluation, a testament to our ongoing commitment to fostering academic excellence and supporting scholars in their educational journey. This exercise involves interactive sessions, resource sharing, and personalized encouragement. We believe in creating an environment where scholars feel supported and motivated on their academic journey. Through these engagements, we aim to contribute to their education and the development of well-rounded, empowered individuals.
