Awareness programme at Birla High School for Girls, Kolkata

A team from VAANI conducted a programme on sensitisation to deafness on 1st July 2009 for 300 students of Birla High School for Girls in Kolkata. The children enjoyed the session, especially their interaction with Jhooma Sircar, a teacher of deaf children in Kolkata. Jhooma was born deaf, and with timely intervention and support, has completed her BA in History and received a B.E.D. from NIHH. She is independent and proved to be an inspiration to the girls of Birla School, showing them how disabilities can be surmounted successfully.
