Part sponsor accommodation of a poor child by Bethany Society

Part sponsor accommodation of a poor child


Help superheroes like Bertina!

Bertina Lyngdoh was three and a half years old when she lost her sight due to typhoid. For no fault of hers, her parents tried abandoning her thrice. For her good care, her grandfather brought her to Bethany Society as a frail, feeble and reclusive child. With time and care she grew into a healthy teenager. There she developed her self-belief and after completing her schooling from Jyoti Sroat School, Shillong (A Unit of Bethany Society), Bertina became the first ever visually impaired person in Meghalaya to complete her post-graduation from a mainstream university.

She expresses her feelings about Bethany lovingly - "It is a platform where I continue to draw my inspiration from. I learned invaluable life skills at Bethany Society such as punctuality, discipline, honesty, sincerity and most importantly self-reliance"

Through love, tenderness, understanding and motivation, Bertina grew into a strong woman. Bertina's story is one of many such stories where a person with disabilities went on to live an independent life with dignity after moving out from Bethany Society. Together with your support, we can ensure that "No one is left behind".

Program Description

Jyoti Sroat (The source of light) School, Bethany Society is an inclusive school in Shillong. The school aims to empower vulnerable groups of children with disabilities and also the ones coming distressed backgrounds, to be part of the mainstream along with providing educational opportunities for them.

The students come from extremely deprived backgrounds. Bethany Society has been providing an enabling environment to these children for the last 25 years.

According to Bethany Society, “We alone can stir a ripple, but together we can trigger and propagate a congenial wave of opportunities and possibilities for these precocious children who are entitled to lead a “Life with Dignity.”.

Children at Bethany Society need Superheroes like you to enable a child live more amply. Together we can fight to end their plight, together we can contribute to build their fortitude!
