Educating a deserving child.
Anbarasan was born in Thotipatti with partial vision loss from birth. His father Muthuraman earnings were not sufficient for education. They came to know that his vision loss couldn’t be cured. They were also not aware of the special schools too. Then he came to know about IAB and given counseling to join schooling but they were not capable to spend for his education.
Anbarasan’s parents were given counseling to accept his blindness and educate him in a proper special school so that he will be groomed well. The cost for education, his study materials, his stay, food and all amenities were provided to him so that he can continue his education
He and his parents were made to come out of the depression to educate him for his excellent future. All the study materials along with comfortable stay and hygienic food were provided. Since, education is the essential and first step for life he felt happy.
