PASDB’s SUPPORT TO MARY CHAPMAN INSTITUTE, WHO TEACHES TO DEAF CHILDREN
In addition, in direct contact with Mary Chapman School, we pay a portion of the cost of school transportation (see photos of the minibus below) of 17 deaf and hard of hearing children, living with their families in slums in the suburb of Lhaing Thar. Yar.
This assistance amounts to €100 per month and includes the rental of a minibus and the salary of a driver.
We met the mothers and they admitted that this sum is a source of great distress for them, since it represents a large part of their income. Without this transport, the children couldn’t be schooled; yet most of these families left their home regions so that their children might be admitted at the Mary Chapman Institute.
Since January 2014, we have offered approximately 8,800 USD to Mary
We hope to increase this regular help to the institute.
