COVID-19 strategies at our partnered organizations
Our action plan at Amar Seva Sangam.
Nearly 450 special children and youth are under Handi-Care’s sponsorship at Amar Seva Sangam, experiencing significantly positive results from the special education and rehab approach we have been successfully implementing for the past almost 30 years. Now, the testing time has come and we are no longer able to bring them to the special schools and offer one on one therapy sessions. After careful consideration and pulling all our resouces together, we are not only addressing the situation, but also offering very effective solutions, through the use of modern technology and dedicated service from the teachers and therapists
Even though Amar Seva Sangam is in a lock down situation since March 2020, due to Pandemic of COVID 19 Virus and as per the Local Govt policy decision, to keep up social distancing, and reduce the spread of the disease to all the children and staff, ASSA has taken special steps to address and handle the situation.
Amar Seva Sangam operates IGNOU University, Alagappa Univ campus and other Institution’s programs for higher studies leading to degrees and diplomas. Apart from that Vocational Training centres, Tailoring and Handicraft training centres are major teaching and training centres at ASSA. 53 youth with disabilities (31 boys and 22 girls) are enrolled in various courses which will enable them to be employed after completion. All these students and their tutors, who are also affected by some disabling conditions are living within the campus. Hence these is NO disruption of schooling for these students.
To run these programs effectively and efficiently, we need your continued support and sponsorship, as the cost has escalated due to providing each child / family with all the necessary gears.
