  Achievements

 

Today the school cares for 175 physically challenged children who are looked after by 12 paid staff members and a number of volunteers from the villages. Of the 12 paid staff members, 3 are trained in special education needs

  Summary

 

Sebama Foundation has three separate schools. These include a school for deaf and dumb children, a school for physically handicapped children and one for Special Children. There are a little more than 200 children enrolled in all three schools. The school buildings also serve as homes for the children.
The school is residential; they have summer holidays and other festival holidays. The children are from Dharmapuri and nearby districts. The children are not abandoned: most have parents who visit onweekends and holidays. The children are not separated from each other based on their handicap. A local doctor treats any medical problemsthe children for free.
