A good beginning

COIMBATORE: The trustees and students at Ashirwad, a school for children with cerebral palsy, autism, Downs’ Syndrome and mental disability, now have a reason to smile. The school has got two more classrooms and this means a lot more space for the children, says Prema V.Joseph, Managing Trustee.

Built by Penta Ladies Circle No.37, the classrooms can be made use of by the children for occupational therapy, she adds. The study modules and the activities can also be planned out systematically now that they have more space, Ms. Prema says. This was not possible last year, as the school had very limited room for carrying out classes. The Penta Ladies Circle No.37 has been associated with the school ever since 2000. The school was reeling under shortage of funds and was in need of more infrastructural facilities in order to accommodate the children. Ever since its inception in 1998, the school has been a shelter for parents of children with autism, Downs’ Syndrome and cerebral palsy.
