Suhrud - Education

Maharashtra Foundation is planning to do active fundraising for Suhrud Mandal. It works for the Educational & Vocational training and rehabilitation of children with hearing impairment. Although initially Suhrud Mandal started schools in the interior of Maharashtra, in 1995 they decided to focus only on schools in Pune and around Pune. Now they have expanded to four schools in and around Pune city that impart education to 450 children with hearing impairment. Suhrud Mandal also runs a Teachers’ training College i.e. P S Mulgaonkar College of B. Ed (special Education) approved by the Rehabilitation Council of India and affiliated to Savitribai Phule University Pune. Suhrud Mandal's current project involves adapting textbooks to hearing impaired needs. They have been creating such parallel textbooks for all subjects since 2011. They are now expanding this work to develop special textbooks for grade VI.

Population(s) Served

Maharashtra Foundation is going to do active fundraising for MASUM. MASUM evolved out of a commitment to women’s rights within and outside the home. MASUM's major goals include strengthening women's self-reliance, providing vocational training and credit and nurturing women's health. MASUM has a human rights approach, with the primary belief that people can resolve their own problems collectively with some amount of external support. In order to emphasize people’s participation in decision-making at every level, the staff is mostly local, especially women from marginalized sections of rural society. MASUM's 'Aadhar Gat' members intervene in domestic violence situations, making the family realise that it is not acceptable in the village, encouraging neighbours and bystanders to intervene and providing overnight shelter and care to the woman and her children in the homes of members of the Aadhar Gat. Aadhar Gats not only try to save a woman’s life but also support her toward leading a life of dignity and rights.
