  • 4. CHOOSING A PROBLEM, DEMOCRATIC WAY! We brainstormed to see what project we could take up. Everyone came up with some suggestions, we consolidated the list as follows: 1. Service project at local orphanage to improve their living condition. 2. Creating awareness about Child labor. 3. Creating awareness about female feticide and infanticide. 4. Service Project with Atma-Jyoti – Home for Blind Girls. 5. Donate cloths and books to Amar Jyoti - school for differently gifted students. 6. Creating awareness about Global warming. 7. Campaign to save water. 8. Adapting a school in poor neighborhood to improve their classrooms. 9. Service project with “Project Roshni – for people with cerebral palsy” 10. Campaign for safe roads. We wanted to involve differently gifted students of our own age in this project, so we shortlisted: 1. Atma Jyoti – Home for Blind Girls 2. Amar Jyoti – School & Rehabilitation Center 3. Project Roshni – Center for People with Cerebral Palsy.
  • 5. CHOOSING A PROBLEM CONTINUED… We then visited all these three places to find out which place will be our final choice. This is when we experienced that each individual has special gifts, we need to find that something special in every one. We attended the Annual function of Amar Jyoti – School for differently gifted, there we saw polio struck children dancing with crutches, children in wheel chair performing dare devil stunts, children with hearing impediment performing mime acts, etc. In all their performances we saw the indomitable human spirit, to overcome all limits and zeal to be recognized in the mainstream life for their talents.
  • 6. CHOOSING A PROBLEM CONTINUED… We visited “Project Roshni – center for people with cerebral palsy”, where people with cerebral palsy learn to lead independent life through pre-vocational training. We then invited them to arrange an exhibition & sale of the items they make as part of pre-vocational training. We saw the beauty and creativity in the items they make and they even taught us how to make few of those items.
  • 7. CHOOSING A PROBLEM CONTINUED… We visited “Atma Jyoti – Home for Blind Girls” and made friendship with them. The visually challenged girls sang songs, played piano and danced for us. They even played chess with us and defeated us. We saw the talents and zeal to develop those talents in them, we became good friends and great fans of these girls.
  • 8. FINALIZING THE PROBLEM After visiting all three places, it was difficult to choose one, but the girls at Atma Jyoti made very good impression on us with their zeal to learn new things and eagerness to improve their skills, so we chose Atma Jyoti unanimously. We involved our new friends at Atma Jyoti in consultation to see what is the best thing we can do together to help them realize their own potential. Most of them think that studying is very important to realize their own talent and live a respectful life. Through education we can sharpen our inherent capacities and realize our true potential. We also realized that they face few problems in studies, which we don’t face because we can see. We want our improve the quality of their studies, so we took up that as our main problem in the project. “PROBLEMS FACED BY VISUALLY CHALLENGED IN STUDYING!”

  • 10. DEMING WHEEL / PDCA CYCLE • Act • Plan : Final : Build friendship implementation : Find out their : Follow up problems : Analyze problem : Evaluate the : Study together outcome. : Sing together : Suggest : Donate Braille improvement printer : Celebrate : Exhibit talent success • Check • Do
  • 11. BRAINSTORMING We conducted brainstorming session to find ideas on what can we do help our visually challenged friends, following is partial list of our ideas: 1. Read lessons for them. 2. Make audio lessons on cassettes for them. 3. Celebrate their birthdays. 4. Celebrate our own birthdays with them. 5. Study with them. 6. Write exams for them. 7. Learn Braille and write notes for them. 8. Donate a Braille embosser to their school. 9. Donate Braille books to their school. 10. Start a choir group with them. 11. Teach them songs. 12. Teach them dances. 13. Prepare a skit with them. 14. Go for picnic with them. 15. Visit them and find out what they need. 16. Organize exhibition and sale of handicraft items they make.
  • 12. DATA COLLECTION We visited our visually challenged friends again to conduct a survey about challenges they face. We asked them few questions orally and recorded their replies. We then consolidated all their replies in a matrix, so that we could analyze the data using Pareto Analysis.
  • 13. MATRIX CUMULATIVE Sr. PROBLEM VOTES CUMULATIVE % VOTES B: Limited study materials 30 30 38% D: Giving Exams 25 55 69% A: Depend on others for study 12 67 84% Don’t get enough time for E: study 8 75 94% C: No Braille books 5 80 100%
  • 14. PIE CHARTS OF THE RESPONSES 5 25 30 Shortage of study material Depending on other for writing exam 12 18 Depend on others for study 8 10 20 22 Don’t get enough time No books in Braille For study YES NO
  • 15. 35 100% 100% 94% 90% 30 84% 80% Problems faced by 25 70% visually challenged students: 69% 60% A: Depend on others for study. 20 B: Limited study materials. 50% C: Can’t study as much I wish. 15 B 40% 38% D: Giving exams. D 10 30% E: No books in Braille. 20% A 5 E 10% C 0 0%
  • 16. • Pareto Analysis showed us that if we work on there 2 vital issues of ‘limited study materials’ and ‘giving exams’, we could solve most of their troubles in studies. • We then used Dr. Ishikawa’s Why-Why technique to go to the root causes.
  • 17. FISHBONE DIAGRAM No Braille printer Machine Individual Challenges in Don’t get Difficulty in study Showcasing talent Braille books Depend only on Not available oral instruction readily in market Material Unavailable No special In Braille schools Giving Exams No special schools No special method of instruction Method Social stigma Non acceptance Society Limited jobs For visually challenged
  • 18. ROOT CAUSES 1. Unavailability of Braille printer/embosser 2. Social non-acceptance due to stigma that visually challenged are dis-abled. 3. Only method of instruction at present is oral instruction. 4. Unavailability of Braille books/study material 5. No special schools for visually challenged
  • 19. STRATEGIES PROPOSED A: Problem: Unavailability of Braille printer. Strategy: To collect funds to donate a Braille Printer. A good quality Braille Printer, with computer interface costs approximately Rs. 200,000.00 (Two lakh Rupees), that is a huge cost, especially for a group of high school All the donations towards purchase of students. So we discussed the idea of the Braille Printer are welcome. collecting donations from everyone with our To send your donations please contact : school directors and they agreed immediately to the idea. Our directors Mrs. Tina Olyai at Little Angels Junior suggested, that we divide the cost in smaller School: +91 751 2324144 or units of Rs 1000.00 (One thousand rupees) Mr. Yogesh at Little Angels High School: and appeal everyone to donate, we need to +91 751 2633481 collect only 200 units to buy the printer.
  • 20. STRATEGIES PROPOSED B: Problem: Social non-acceptance due to stigma that visually challenged are dis-abled. Strategy 1: Organize exhibitions of the handicraft things these girls have made. We spoke to our school Principal Dr. Mrs. Alka Sharma about this idea and she suggested to organize the exhibition & sale of these handicraft items on a Parent- Teacher Meeting day, when lot of parents come to the school, this way many people can visit the exhibition and buy few things from there. Strategy 2: All girls mixed choir group from both schools. We spoke to our visually challenged friends about this idea and they are very excited about this idea. They sing very well. We will invite to sing with us once in our school Assembly and then start the choir group.
  • 21. STRATEGIES PROPOSED C: Problem: Only method of learning is oral instruction Strategy 1: To prepare audio lessons for them. We spoke to their warden Ms Priti Yadav about this idea, she was very happy with the idea. She said that the girls have some cassette players and they use it regularly, if we make audio lessons on cassettes it will be beneficial for them. Strategy 2: To prepare Braille study notes for them. When we donate the Braille printer, this will happen automatically.
  • 22. STRATEGIES PROPOSED D: Problem: No special schools for visually challenged. Strategy: Write to Government authorities to start a special school for visually challenged students. Do you want to see this beautiful world even after death? We discussed this with our parents and teachers and most of them told us that there are such schools in big cities and setting up one takes lots of resources. Some parents suggested that we create awareness about EYE Donation, which will Donate eyes! benefit the visually challenged people in general.
  • 23. ANALYZING OUTCOME - 1 Though we plan using the QC tools, sometimes we need to change plans for good reasons, like writing exams for these visually challenged girls came up suddenly and we had put everything aside to do that first. This came up suddenly, because the Exam dates for them were changed to start and finish earlier and thus their regular exam writers could not help them, so we organized the writers for them. All our visually challenged friends got very good grades and we celebrated their success together.
  • 24. ANALYZING OUTCOME - 2 The Exhibition and Sale of handicraft items made by the visually challenged girls created lot of awareness among parents about talents of these girls. Now many people go to Atma Jyoti to visit and sometimes buy few things made by them.
  • 25. ANALYZING OUTCOME - 3 • We could not prepare audio lessons for them before exam, due to lack of time and now that they are next class, their school is changing their syllabi and we can get the books only in August 2009. We’ll prepare the audio lessons then. • We’ve started collecting funds for Braille Printer, we hope to buy and donate the printer by mid-July.
  • 26. ANALYZING OUTCOME - 4 • We have good feeling about the choir group, we have already started singing together, soon we’ll be performing on big stage together. • Our awareness campaign for eye donation is appreciated by our teachers and parents.
  • 27. DOING MORE – FOLLOW UP • Even after we finish this project, we will still keep visiting out new friends and make sure they have no troubles in studies. • We hope by next year they’ll be able to learn typing and give their examinations using type- writers, we’ll work on that. • We’ll create more awareness about donating eyes. • In past our teachers and students have helped the girls from Atma Jyoti to start a Quality Circle. We will also help our friends start their own Quality Circles to solve their problems on their own.
