CSR Support from ONGC for Accessible Computer Labs

A Memorandum of Understanding was signed in June 2018 by CBM and ONGC towards setting up accessible computer labs in two schools in Agartala

Accessible computer labs are necessary to make quality education a reality for children with disabilities. Hence, the joint venture of CBM and ONGC towards the setting up of accessible computer labs in two schools of Agartala, Tripura.

CBM, in partnership with ONGC (Oil and Natural Gas Corporation), is setting up accessible computer labs in two schools of Agartala, directly benefiting 725 children from class 1-12. 122 students among them are children with disabilities. With the installation of accessible software and furniture and the help of trained instructors, the computer labs will be completely accessible for all children with and without disabilities.
 
The number of children with disabilities who specialize in science is comparatively lower for the reason that many of the computer and science labs are inaccessible for them. For example, even if schools might have computer labs, they are often not accessible for a child with locomotor disabilities or visual or hearing impairments. The setting up of accessible computer labs, equipped with online assistive technologies, will ensure improved learning and functional capabilities for children with and without disabilities. This will also ensure more enrollment of children with disabilities to the schools as mandated under Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan.  
 
The computer labs will complement CBM’s already existing projects on inclusive education in the north east region of India. 

CBM is proud to have partnered with ONGC for a project that will transform the lives of children with disabilities.
