Coimbatore NGO constructs accessible toilets and ramps in government schools
NGO Swarga Foundation from Coimbatore has built accessible toilets and ramps for the benefit of physically disabled students recently.
Disabled children forced to drop out of school due to lack of accessible toilets
The move came after the foundation members saw a physically disabled Class 7 student find it difficult to move around in a government school. The foundation decided to buy a wheelchair so that the student can move independently.
As the school is located in a village and has eight disabled students, the Swarga Foundation also built accessible toilets in the school for a cost of Rs 2.25 lakhs.
The NGO has also set up ramps in six government schools to help disabled students move around easily without anybody's help.
