LPU’s Bengaluru Alumni are making waves with their annual CSR activity of 2018 – “Echoes of Freedom”. This Independence Day, LPU’s Bengaluru Alumni are coming forward to bring a silver lining in the lives of the blind and differently-abled children through their annual CSR activity.
LPUAA’s Bengaluru-Chapter Vertos are coming together to renovate the old computer lab of Shree Ramana Maharishi Academy for the Blind (SRMAB) and also donate a much-needed drinking-water storage tank (to help to reduce the long queues of students for drinking water from the current single tap). As the number of good books that are in braille is limited and the present computer lab in the academy is old and semi-functional, the kids get exposure only to a limited as well as age-old textbooks.
The Bengaluru alumni are aiming to raise INR 60,000 in one week to donate the necessary computer accessories along with drinking-water steel storage tank (with 3/4 taps) to the academy. With this, the children at the academy will have access to better technology. Throughout the world, the differently abled are often left out due to limited access to technologies. In such a scenario, it makes a huge difference by helping those who help these differently able children. You can be a part of this CSR activity too. Check this link to know how.
