Ramchandra Kurulkar Bahuuddeshiya Shikshan Sanstha
Established in 2006, RKBSS is a self funded multi purpose educational Trust that works for the holistic development of mentally challenged and hearing impaired children in Raigad District of Maharashtra.
The services are particularly focused towards the impoverished tribal population residing in the hilly areas around Panvel, who have neither the means nor appropriate knowledge in dealing with disabilities. Many of these children have been abandoned by their families owing the perceived financial burden that they impose.
With the aim of rehabilitating and uplifiting these children, a free residential school was started in a rented premises at Chiple Village in Panvel Taluka. It aimed to provide not just basic facilities such as food, shelter and clothing, but also educational, recreational and medical facilities to ensure that these children are not limited by their unfortunate disabilities in becoming productive members of society.
Starting with a modest batch of 17 children, the school today hosts about 40 hearing impaired and 3 mentally challenged children between the age group of 5 - 14 years. It has brought about a significant difference in the lives of all these children, who become self reliant and gainfully get employed in various jobs after leaving the institution. All these children become first generation literates.
The children spending their formative years at our residential school are exposed to a unique dwelling and learning environment where they are trained to overcome their disabilities and lead an almost normal life. They are trained in various academic and life skills in addition to provision of basic facilities.
Some of the salient features of this school are:
The students are taught academic, social and cultural values. They are divided into batches based on their learning ability and IQ and academic classes are held every morning.
Students are trained in reading writing, mathematics and the social sciences. In addition they are also engaged in extra-curricular activities like Yoga, Music, Dance, Drama, Sports and various competitions for their all-round development.
Once equipped with basic skills, the children are given specialized vocational training to help them become self-dependent in life.
We are duly registered under the following laws:
Provide academic, vocational and value education to the tribal boys and girls with hearing and MR handicap and instill in them confidence, self reliance and senses of pride.
