Daksh finally finds a school that helps him enjoy learning
Daksh is a 6 year old boy who suffers from Cerebral Palsy. This affects his movement and body posture and he has to use a wheelchair for his mobility.
His parents did not know how to cope with his special requirements. He was attending a local school but couldn't cope with his learning and activities.
His parents came to know about VISHWAS Vidyalaya. They learnt that the school was inclusive. This meant that Daksh would have a better learning environment.
Keeping in mind what was best for the child, they enrolled Daksh in the school. When he first joined VISHWAS Vidyalaya, he would weep all the time. He was very close to his father and found it difficult to cope without him. He was disinterested in any activity.
At the Vidyalaya, there is focus on holistic growth and development and the inclusive set up promotes participation in all activities. With proper care and guidance, Daksh has now bloomed into a chirpy and cheerful boy.
The attention he has received in the Vidyalaya has given him wings. He is now an extremely cheerful, enthusiastic and regular child who loves to participate in all activities.
He is now in 2nd grade. Despite difficulties in fine movement coordination, he attempts to write and draw.
This little champion has gone on to win the Gold in throwing ball through the ring contest, held on the school’s Annual Sports day.
Children like Daksh just need a little guidance and support to help them overcome their challenges and aspire for a better future.

Story from the field
Mere talent cannot take you places…..one also needs to persevere to perform well and aim for excellence! The story of Adil, Arif and Almin, students of VISHWAS is very surprising and amazing. All of them play football and not just play it……they have been handpicked by Brazil International Football Academy (BIFA) to receive training. Just as, “A jeweler knows the worth of a precious stone”, so does the “Hawk eye” of a good coach, spot talent. The same was the case with these 3 children. The burning desire in these 3 to pursue the sport against all odds helped them to receive full sponsorship from BIFA! Here comes the surprising element- the 3 of them are Siblings! Like the majority of students at VISHWAS, these children belong to a very underprivileged background. Their father, Mr.Mohd Anis, is a security guard and mother, Ms. Sabira Khatun, is a domestic help. They have an elder sister who studied up to class X, but due to financial constraints could not continue further and is now acting as an additional hand to supplement the household income. Adil is a student of grade VIII, Asif grade V and Almin grade IV, now. Both the parents are very supportive towards the education of the 3 children. Despite being uneducated, they motivate the children and support them in all possible ways.
