An appeal to well wishers & Philanthropists
The DWAB was started with a view to cater the needs of blind community across the state without any discrimination of caste, community, sex and age. The association aims at the all-around development of each and every blind individual to make him/her a self supporting and contributing member of the society.As a first step in this direction the organization started a hostel for the blind with about ten children a small rented house. Later it was converted into a residential school providing free boarding, lodging and education
With the moral and financial supporter of several well wishers and philanthropists we could construct a three storied building of our own named as SURDAS BHAVAN at Gollaguda of Deendalayal Nagar of Nalgonda Town, one of their backward areas of the state. The building is spacious enough to accommodate 250 to 300 children with all amenities.
Today there are about 160 blind students with separate facilities for boys and girls. It is a recognized school maintaining higher standards of education. The school has been fetching 100% results since its inception in 1996 and it stands as the only school for the blind run by an non government organization in the rural area of the entire Telangana region. Several important dignitaries of Central & State Governments visited our school and expressed their utmost satisfaction and happiness over the functioning of the school in particular and organization in general.
The School will be completing 10 years of its existence in January 2006. We plan to organize this eventful function on a reasonably grand scale. To mark this event we proposed to organize state level sports, cultural activities, seminars and several awareness programmes spread over a period of six months from 4th January 2006 to 27th June 2006.
To expand our activity we have established an administrative office at Hyderabad with a view to reach the unreached across the state. We propose to construct one ‘Surdas Bhavan ‘ in each of 23 districts of Andhra Pradesh to run a home for aged and blind and to under take training programmers for the blind youth. We also wish to establish one Braile academy in Hyderabad, the first of its king in India. This academy will have computerized Braile Press to print out books in Braile for school children all over the state. The academy will also have one audio digital library to provide books to the blind students of college in audio cassettes and compact discs. The academy also caters the programme of research & development in information technology to bring the blind persons at par with their seeing counter parts.
The organization makes a fervent appeal to all the well wishers and philanthropist to donate generously and support us to spear head. This stupendous task ahead in the interest of blind community who constitute the weakest segment of society economically socially and culturally. We are happy to make it known that the donations received by this organisation will have 100 percent tax exemption under the provision of 35 A.C of the Income Tax Act.
