The United Nations celebrated the International Day of Persons with Disabilities on December 3. Closer to home, the leading real estate development company Embassy Group has supported students with disabilities by supporting the non-profit Snehadeep Trust for the Disabled of Bengaluru with Rs 10 lakh on an annual basis.

The funds would be used by the trust to provide food, accommodation and medical expenses to underprivileged students who are visually impaired, hard of hearing and physically disabled. A computer training program will also be organized for visually impaired students.

Snehadeep Trust for the Disabled was established in 1999 by three visually impaired graduates with a keen interest in helping people with disabilities take advantage of life’s opportunities.

The trust aims to provide braille sheets to blind students at the Disabled Computing Training Centers in Bengaluru and Ranebennur, Karnataka.

The trust has two residential facilities where students stay and study. The manuals are printed using a braille embossing machine. Currently, 140 visually impaired students need books made from braille sheets, which are quite expensive. The organization depends on donations from supporters and philanthropists for daily expenses.

Snehadeep has 52 children and four teachers as part of its integrated education program. As part of this program, students receive computer training, teach English communication, leadership qualities, and are enrolled in motivation and self-confidence-building courses.

The trust also strives to find suitable jobs for students upon completion of the course, in software companies as well as in state government positions.

Embassy Group, headquartered in Bengaluru, began operations in 1993 under the leadership of Chairman and CEO Jitu Virwani.

The group’s other initiatives include support for AMBA, an organization that aims to develop the professional skills of people with moderate to severe intellectual disabilities.

Embassy Group supports them with rental payments for one of their AMBA certified partner centers for training and employment operations, at an average cost of Rs 10 lakh per year.

The real estate company has developed numerous spaces in the commercial, residential, commercial, hotel and industrial warehouse sectors. The group’s operations span Indian and international markets which include Bengaluru, Chennai, Pune, Coimbatore, Serbia and Malaysia.
