School Connect

About

School Connect aims to develop English language, computer literacy and skill development alongside nurturing perspective, knowledge and opportunities tailored individually for each student. The other areas of intervention are life skill training, exposure visits, soft skills, mentorship and orienting to the job market. The core idea of this whole project is to make an early intervention in equipping the children with disabilities to become self-aware and confident in pursuing their career. The project started in the month of June 2018 with 90 beneficiaries having speech and hearing impairment hailing from underprivileged background at a Residential Government School for Speech & Hearing Impaired [Boys], New Malakpet (Hyderabad). Since then, apart from classroom teaching of English and computers other activities are conducted as well for their enhancement.
