Our Children Light The Way To A Hopeful Tomorrow

Our Children Light The Way To A Hopeful Tomorrow

Children are our most valuable resources, and if there is any hope left for the world to truly become a better place, then it is with these little bundles of joy. They remind us of love, kindness, compassion and innocence every step of the way. Children’s Day in India is celebrated with a lot of mirth and joy, and is a chance for us to encourage the little ones to grow into wonderful human beings, who can contribute to the society at large.

MBCN has always seen the bigger picture for kids with special abilities. These children have every right to receive education, seek greater opportunities, get involved in shaping the society and participate in activities, much like their peers. However, we still live in a world that can’t seem to rid itself of the stigma that revolves around disabilities. It is disheartening to see a lot of these kids, who get marginalised due to their physical and mental drawbacks, and have a harder time coping with others due to the stereotypes and inhibitions.

The eminent and highly experienced faculty & staff at MBCN strive each day to make the learning process easier, and to equip these special children with a bounty of knowledge, skills and talents that can help them break the set notions around disability.

A recent campaign, which had resounding success across the city of Noida, was #ConnectingSigns. From teaching people the Indian national anthem in sign language, to expressing special needs, our MBCN kids caused ripples of change through the robust campaign, which we hope and pray would have an everlasting impact on our community in the years to come.

Whether it’s kindness or the beauty in curiosity, children with special abilities can teach us the importance of empathy and humanity. This Children’s Day, take a few minutes and spend it with a child who has special needs, and be sure to walk away with receiving more than you could have ever given!

Connecting Signs: A Language We All Must Learn

When you’re thirsty, you ask for a glass of water. What about those who can’t speak?

When you’re lost, you ask for directions. What about those who can’t make themselves heard?

When you’re worried, you call a friend and talk for hours at end. What about those who don’t have that option?

When you hear music, you can’t keep your feet from tapping. What about those who can’t hear?

Clearly, we need to bridge the gap and connect with the unconnected! And Connecting Signs does just that.

What is Connecting Signs all about?

It is about connecting those missing dots.
It is about making those unheard voices heard.
It is about breaking down those walls that keep us from communicating.

Connecting Signs is a way for us to reach out to those who need us the most, and in a way that has never been done before!

In our day to day hustle, we don’t realize that life is not as easy for those who can’t hear or speak. Even if we do take out the time to reach out, we do so with an air of sympathy or commiseration. The important realization, which we often forget, is that those with a speech or hearing impairment are truly gifted in ways that go beyond the ordinary. All they need is a little touch of magic from those of us who can encourage and help them.

International Week of the Deaf 2017: September 18 – September 24, and Connecting Signs is an endeavour, which will raise greater awareness around those who can’t speak or hear. The campaign will strive to signal the many challenges these people face, besides the many hardships they bear due to societal negligence and lack of effort.

The various activities and events will be a sincere attempt at bridging all gaps, and opening doors to effortless forms of communication. Besides educating the masses about sign language and its importance, Connecting Signs will also embrace the differences, give life to new friendships, and negate all forms of misconceptions and taboos associated with such impairments.

The power to change lives lies in our hands! Are you giving a thumbs up to this one?

Vaakya – A New Voice for the Voiceless

A picture-based application “Vaakya” has been launched by Mata Bhagwanti Chadha Niketan (MBCN) charitable school, to help differently-abled and speech impaired children and enable them to learn alternative and augmentative communication.

Introducing the main features of the app to the press representatives at a press briefing, Ms. Vandana Sharma, Director of the School told that, “The app is extremely helpful for the persons who have lost their power to speak or read. Besides, it will also help people affected by cerebral palsy, autism and several other mental and physical conditions“.

She further told that “The app is a combination of audio and custom images. An individual can relate to these images and phrases that will eventually lead towards his/her enhanced ability to communicate effectively. The app aims to make speech impaired persons self-reliant and independent“.

Vaakya in Hindi means “sentence” and the app is equipped with amazing and user-friendly features. This also allows to create multiple accounts, hence, parents/guardians, therapists and teachers can share and use images and actions particular to an individual person. Not only that, it combines custom images and audio that makes it free from language dependence. Further the speech linked with actions can be recorded in multiple languages. According to the estimates, respectively 7.5 % and 5.8 % of the total differently abled population in India face speech and hearing impairments. Therefore, this app is expected to help a considerable population all over India.

Vaakya, a free communication app for voiceless, launched by MBCN, is not internet dependent rather it uses the phone’s memory. It was made available free on Google play store on 16 February on the eve of School’s 18th annual day. It can be downloaded from; https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.edu.aut….

Other than the app, MBCN also launched an e-commerce portal that sells products made by the special students of the school under its vocational training program “Swayam”. Though not wide, but very special handmade products range from office stationery, gifts, wedding gifts, packaging items and paper bags. Like Vaakya this portal also has simple interface and contains all details including size, specifications and price of the products. This portal is connected to school’s website http://www.mbcnschool.org and customers can buy the products from there.

Based in Noida, India and founded in 1999 Mata Bhagwanti Chadha Niketan School is one of the largest schools in India for differently abled children. It has been providing complete rehabilitation services to mentally and physically challenged children. Currently, the number of its beneficiaries is more than 1000 students. It is run by Ponty Chadha Foundation.
