AMRITA SPEECH AND HEARING
IMPROVMENT SCHOOL (ASHIS)
ASHIS is one of the few schools in Kerala that
scientifically teaches hearing-impaired children
to speak. More than 80 children attend the school
full-time. They work hard to overcome the limitations
created by their speech and hearing disabilities.
The children have a 100% pass rate in
the Secondary School Leaving Certificate exam.
They are encouraged in dance and art. A vocational
training centre is planned for graduates.
Project for tribal people
AMRITA ARANYA JEEVANAM
This is the Ashram's project for the all-round upliftment
of India's tribal people. One of its main objectives
is to build 50 schools for Kerala's tribal
population. The Ashram has already built 10 such
schools in Attappadi. The project not only aims
to provide education for children, but also vocational
training and education for adults.
