Our plan is to establish an Intermediate School and University for disabled students at ASHA-LATA with hostel facility with help from all concerned Individuals, Trusts & Organizations.
It is run by an NGO managed by a group of people retired from senior executive position mostly engineer from SAIL, BOKARO STEEL PLANT. All the members are giving free services to the organization.
The organization is not getting any financial help either from Govt. or any funding agencies.
The institution is being run through donations from individuals and some organizations like Bokaro Steel Plant, ONGC, Bokaro Mahila Samiti, Co-operative credit societies, and Banks etc.
ISSUES CONFRONTING ASHA-LATA
Lack of sustainable fund.
Insufficient infrastructure facilities for education and sports activities.
Inadequate transport facility.
Scholarship of disabled children by govt.
Lack of awareness & concern in parents & society.
Non-fulfillment of 3% job quota & 3 % admission in educational institute earmarked for disable persons.
Urgent need of hostel.
Due to non availability of sustainable fund the organization is always in financial crisis. Sponsorship/Adoption of Children by Individuals & Organizations is major financial resources of Asha-Lata.
