The youngest student of "Arunodaya: Sunshine for Blind "
Ananya first came to a medical camp organized by the Ek Kadam Aur Foundation. Her grandmother wanted to consult with a doctor and find out if her blindness could be treated. To their disappointment, her blindness was irreversible. A lot of challenges awaited Ananya. She was timid and felt excluded from other children.
Once Ananya joined Arunodaya: Sunshine for Blind at the Ek Kadam Aur Foundation, a trainer was appointed for one-on-one classes at her home.
After Ananya visited the Government School in Panhar, she insisted on continuing classes with her sighted peers. The trainer is now teaching her in the school premises under Dr. Kalpana's (pictured left) guidance.
Ananya enjoys learning so much so that the trainer now gives her private lessons during summer vacation as well!
" I feel so happy to see Ananya’s transformation from a timid little girl who was earlier dependent on her grandmother for everything to someone moving freely in school campus, eating on her own and playing with other children -- in such a short span of time! "
