Sponsor fees of children in an inclusive school in Shillong


An inspiration for many - Maidensoben

Hailing from Mawkywat, West Khasi Hills district of Meghalaya, Maidensoben Lynkgkhoi, lives with her aunt. She could only study till Class III and also developed hearing impairment and her vision too deteriorated, gradually. Things started looking up for Maiden when she joined Jyoti Sroat School, Shillong in 2013. Though, in the beginning, she was placed in the Deafblind unit where she resumed her education, within two years, she was mainstreamed to join the regular classes in Jyoti Sroat School, which is designed in an inclusive manner. With her unwavering grit and support from the staff, Maiden was inspired to realise her potential and now she excels on various fronts. Like Maiden, who is an inspiration in herself, there are many other children that belong to remote and marginalized communities in Meghalaya. They are deprived of an opportunity for a life with dignity due to numerous barriers and lack of access to basic services.

Program Description
