Globalgiving is an international organization, which organizes giving of donations by its members to genuine charitable institutions throughout the world which are engaged in noble social activities in various fields. Our Institute is registered with them for receiving donations for specific projects. In the last a little over one year we have received donations from them amounting to approximately 2 Lacs (INR). So far we have utilized this grant to purchase two desktop computers with Talking-Book cum Recording Unit for the Blind students. These computers are being utilized for production of talking books as well as educational material in Braille script.
