Help a differently abled child go to school

Help a differently abled child go to school


Nadirsha can keep going to school now!

Life had never been too kind to Nadirsha. When he was 20 years old, he had to move using a wheelchair. His father looked after his every need and used to take him to school, which was their only hope for him to have a better life.

He came from a poor family. Many days, his father had to work and could not afford to take him to school. Nadirsha had low attendance because of this. His future started to look uncertain but there was nothing they could do about it.

Realising this, Adarsh Charitable Trust provided Nadirsha with free transportation facility. They pick him up from his doorstep and drop him back. He is now able to attend school regularly.

His father began to work without worrying about Nadirsha. This helped him settle their debts and pay to help Nadirsha grow. They still have very little money. But they are grateful for the support they receive which helps them get by.

Every small help matters to poor families who struggle to earn their daily wages. You can ease their burdens by giving to make healthcare more accessible to their children. You can give with confidence because every program on our platform is GIVEASSURED.

Around 182 children are using this facility. Of which 60 children are from financially poor family and they need support to use this facility.
