Sahana charitable trust for the disabled(R) is a voluntary organization formed by five like-minded visually challenged 17 years ago, to promote education among the visually challenged to bring them into the main stream of the society. We transcribe the prescribed academic books into braille script and distribute to the needy college-going visually impaired students throughout Karnataka state to pursue their studies competently and comfortably. We also run a free hostel to the visually impaired girls studying in various colleges of the silicon city. These students come from far-flung rural areas belonging to below poverty line families.
Our Bangalore unit, the head office is sheltered in a rented building of the above address. Here, we have our braille transcription centre and a girl’s hostel. We have accommodated 25 college-going visually impaired girls in our hostel and 12 employees taking care of all these activities. As this is a rented building, we have to vacate as and when the land-lard wishes. We are already informed by the owner to lookout for a different building as it is likely to be disposed of at the earliest.
Frequent shifting of buildings hampers our day-to-day work to a great extent. It is also very hard to trace a suitable building. The owner of this building urges us to purchase promising to sell it to us Rs. 25 lakhs lesser than to the other buyers. We realise that this building is absolutely suitable to our activity; as it enables our clients and our inmates an easy accessibility to go and come. Though we are not in a position to buy this building costing Rs. 3 crores, we do possess an ambition to have a permanent shelter that makes us very comfortable to serve the visually challenged community. So, we earnestly appeal to your good self to contribute generously to this noble cause enabling our trust to have a building of its own and do the service to the deprived community with ease and comfort perpetually. We trust you would generously extend your helping hand towards purchase of this building.Thank you,
