Sponsor the hostel expenses of a differently abled student by Samarthanam Trust for the Disabled

Sponsor the hostel expenses of a differently abled student


Access to a safe shelter, holistic education, and medical care can help the differently abled to improve their quality of life and be independent

Jyothi was born with an orthopedical disability in her arm. Unfortunately, both her parent's passed away when she was very young.

Her next of kin didn't want to have the burden of the responsibility of a disabled girl child. So, they abandoned her without even the thought that she was a little girl.

One of Samarthanam's representative found Jyothi and took her into the Samarthanam Hostel for Girls. Once she settled down, the trust enrolled her into Samarthanam Residential Primary School. Jyothi was a bright student, but due to the disability related to her arm, she was not able to write.

As she was still young, the trust checked if there was any medical help that could help her. The doctors performed a surgery after which she regained use of her arm to a reasonable extent.

Her life has drastically changed for the good with her arm operation. She can now write her owns notes without having to rely on her friends and teachers. Apart from academics, she is also a good dancer. The care that Jyothi has received has helped her bloom into a confident girl.

She is now in class VII in the Samarthanam Residential High School. She aspires to grow up to be a teacher to educate children like herself.

Without the support and care of Samarthanam, Jyothi would have spent her life on the streets and faced many hardships. She would have struggled with her disability being a roadblock all her life. The aid she has received has given hope for her future.

Program Description

Samarthanam Trust runs a program to provide free hostel facilities for the disabled and underprivileged students, especially young girls. This aid helps them pursue education. This program serves the differently abled students from Bangalore as well as far-flung, impoverished rural areas in Karnataka and neighboring states.

One unit of donation to this program supports the staff salaries, medical expenses and administrative expenses of the hostels for one differently abled college student for a month.

The students live in safe hostels with active supervision, hygienic and nutritious food and reliable transportation to their place of education.

Volunteers provide training to assist them in studies and extra-curricular activities to ensure holistic development. This includes recorded course material for visually impaired. Each student receives individual care and attention.

There are three hostels in Bangalore; one in HSR Layout and 2 in JP Nagar. Two teachers train the students in the hostels. The hostels have approximately 35 students residing throughout the academic year.

When you donate to this program, you help a differently abled student get access to a safe shelter and an education. This education can help them become independent and build a better future for themselves.
