Proposed Project Description

 

The one-year project aims at promoting inclusive education at Doddaballpura, Rural Bengaluru—a) by creating accessible infrastructure at three mainstream school; b), by setting up  a bridge school for out of school dchildrne with disabilities in one one class room allotted in govt school. With this all children with and without disabilities can learn and play together.

The region has a total of 135 children with disabilities, who are out of school. By opening of a bridge centre for out of school children with disabilities and simultaneously by strengthening the existing academic infrastructure of three schools, the project will enable the education of all children in the area.
At Doddaballapur, Rural Bengaluru, the schools don’t have basic infrastructure. The high school doesn’t have a science lab and computer lab. The middle school doesn’t have proper playground, and no provision of drinking water. In many classrooms students sit on floor. There is power cut in the area; hence running computers is also difficult. The funds given by government is not adequate for all schools in the region. Hence, the schools are running with limited resources. Facilitating the school with basic accessible infrastructure will enable the studies of all children in the school, including children with disabilities. 
In total, Doddabllapura has 135 children with disabilities in the age group of 6 to 14. CBMs primary survey has identified 25 children with disabilities from Doddabllapura, who can be mainstreamed in year one. They are children with Intellectual Disability, Cerebral Palsy, Multiple Disability, Autism, Hearing Impairment, and/or may be Slow Learners, learning disability. These children were spending their lives within the four walls of their home for so many years. 
So it is indeed important to bring them out to the world! It is possible through enrolment to schools and offering education. However, lack of awareness of parents, teachers and community on the potential of children with disabilities; lack of accessible infrastructure and curriculums in mainstream school and lack of trained teachers stands as a challenge. Hence the project aims to capacitate them and enhance their skills and abilities equipping them to get enrolled to mainstream school.  To enrol these children to school, the project proposes to set up bridge centre at government school premise, further enabling them to enrol mainstream school. Beneficiary list is attached.
The infrastructure development suggested above are the immediate need of the school. In due course of time, CBM will further invest for infrastructure on the same schools ensuring its complete transformation to a model school.
