On your project with us, you will get involved with renovation and beautification activities at the local hearing impaired school. This project takes place in the city of Udaipur where we are located at. This school provides education for special children from the age of 5 years to 18 years which is from Kindergarten to pre-university (12 standard). They also have sports education for the children. We are involved in various projects by providing coaching in the field of sports, kindergarten education, and development of general infrastructure for the children at the school.

We also take part in providing a better environment by beautifying the classrooms. At the moment, we look to provide access to safe drinking water and to develop the sanitation infrastructure at the school. Those with artistic talents can help decorate the walls by creating images and sketches about general hygiene and awareness modules. You will also have the opportunity to take part in activities that will empower the children, by improving the environment they study in and also help them in planning, improving techniques, new ideas in computer education that can help in their existing activities and teach new ways of learning.

Your team will be mainly renovating and doing minor renovation work at the school. This will include beautification such as painting the walls of the computer classroom and renovating the water console for the children to have access to clean drinking water. You will also be involved in giving awareness to children about segregation of waste, clean and hygienic habits.

You will have the opportunity to engage the local children of the community in some sports which could be soccer or cricket in the evenings. Your team can choose to do so after discussion with your project coordinator. Most of the children are interested to play cricket or soccer.

In association with the forest department, we will also be taking up tree planting at the biological park and in areas suggested by the department in Udaipur.
