Cause: Tharuni Swecha: Cycle to School! Raising: Rs. 500000 Expected no of Beneficiaries: 100 Underprivileged Girls Raising Funds for: 1) The Census 2011 states that the dropout rate of girls in Telangana is 38.21%, which is quite worrying. Lack of safety, Mobility and the fear of being eve-teased are the main reasons for girls to discontinue school. The dropped out girls either end up married before the legal age or struggle as Child Labourers. Even worse, they are trafficked. Education is their only means to challenge the odds, and "Cycle to School" is making it a reality! 2) To help more girls go to school daily, Tharuni, through its "Cycle to School" initiative aims to donate at least 500 bicycles a year to girls from economically poor families. No more travel hassles, as they will be more independent and empowered in their fight for education. The Cycle to School initiative prevents not only school dropouts, but also eventual child labour and child marriage of the girls, and potentially stops trafficking. 3) The funds will be utilized to purchase 100 bicycles and will be distributed to the selected needy girls from rural villages of Telangana state. Each cycle will cost Rs. 5000 which includes transportation to the concerned villages. The bicycles will be given to the girls who are studying in classes 6th to 9th, belonging to below poverty line families and are at the verge of dropping out from the school. 4) Through 'Tharuni Swecha - Cycle to School Campaign for Girls', as more girls are empowered with bicycles, they are educated and hence prevented from being married off at a young age. Lack of transportation and concerns of distance will no longer bother girls who wish to pursue their education. As a result, the dropout rates are minimized and female literacy could be improved in the long run. Tharuni has distributed about 500 bicycles in the last two years and closely monitors the beneficiaries through the balika sanghas and with the support of their school teachers. About the Organization: Tharuni works for the welfare of adolescent girls and women since 2000. Tharuni has successfully run many campaigns against child marriage, child labour, infanticide, trafficking and child sexual abuse by setting up balika sanghas in the rural villages of Telangana. Through balika sanghas Tharuni was able to transform the lives of 16000 girls over 19 years. Tharuni could stop hundreds of child marriages, bring new legislation, working closely with government in rehabilitating victims of child marriage, labour and abuse. Tharuni is the technical partner for an integrated rape crisis centre - Bharosa run by Telangana police. Vision: Empowering Adolescent Girls, Women and Aged to build a better world where there is no Discrimination. Mission: To make the adolescent girls and women attain their rightful place as equal partners with men in development, by fully harnessing their potential.  Tharuni (Not For Profit) Project Website : www. tharuni.org Project Facebook Page : http://www.facebook.com/Tharuni.org Project Twitter Handle : http://www.twitter.com/Tharuni_org Project Office Address : 27, Nagarjuna Colony, Near Champapet-X-Road Vysalinagar Post Hyderabad – 500 079 Contact Full Name : Dr. Mamatha Raghuveer Achanta Contact Designation : Founder Contact Phone Number : 9849418592 Contact Email : mamatha@tharuni.org

They go through a culture of learning by rote by apathetic teachers that don't equip them with any real skills for their life. They join the 48 percent of the unemployable college graduates in India mainly because they cannot read, speak or write English. After four years of intensive research in the villages of India, we've come up with an English and Life Skills curriculum. We provide school capacity building programs for affordable private schools by promoting joyful learning. We train 8 teachers per school to promote and create a culture of learning that would empower the kids with real life skills.   Now, five years later, 90 percent of the children going to schools in the villages are enrolled in higher education in colleges. All the girls are still in school.   From 2014 till now, we have worked with 480 schools, 4800 teachers and have impacted the lives of over 144,000 students.  The fund will be utilized for yearlong learning support for 2000 children and 100 teachers in low income schools in Hyderabad region. The English and Life Skills Lab (ELSL) is designed as a whole school capacity building programme. The students and teachers will learn for 120 hours in an interactive and joyful manner where language acquisition becomes a part of the lived experience rather than the theoretical structure (grammar) based approach. Team games, Theatre, Music, Stories, and Art are applied to learn creatively and critical social consciousness is built among teachers to transform traditional rote learning to purposeful learning.

Cause: Providing Special Education to Hearing Impaired Students from underprivileged backgrounds Raising: Rs. 3,75,000 /- Expected no of Beneficiaries: 25 Children  Raising Funds for: Problem Statement : Hearing loss is the most common sensory deficit in humans today. WHO estimates, 360 million persons in the world are with disabling hearing loss. Approximately 8 % (32mn) of total affected population are children, majority of them are in South Asia and in sub Saharan Africa. Hearing loss is a silent and debilitating disability which affects over 24 million children in India. It is estimated that two in every 1,000 children born in India are deaf. In Telangana/Andhra Pradesh the estimated figures are six out of every 1,000 children are born with profound deafness, which is three times the national average and six times the global average. India has one of the highest deaf populations in the world with approximately 6% of the population suffering from some kind of hearing loss. Recognizing the need to provide special educational facilities to the children with hearing impairment, School for the Hearing Impaired was founded by Ashray Akruti in 1996 in Hyderabad, Telangana, India. What started with just five children and now caters to the educational needs of 550 Hearing Impaired Children. So far 250 hearing impaired children have been integrated into the normal schools, colleges and universities. 100 Hearing impaired children from outside Hyderabad avail residential facilities provided by Ashray Akruti. The organization has been following several unique techniques in imparting special education to the hearing impaired children, the main feature being that the children are encouraged to speak. The focus is to enhance the residual hearing power of the children thus encouraging the children to speak rather than rely on sign language for communication. The institution encourages participation of the mothers in effective development of their children. All the staff members are well equipped to train hearing impaired children. Children are given special training in auditory and verbal skills and also academic training as per Andhra Pradesh State Syllabus. The institution steadfastly maintains a low teacher-student ratio, which enables every child to get the individual attention.Target Group 25 Hearing Impaired Children from underprivileged backgrounds. Geographical Location Hyderabad, Telangana, India Scope of the Project Key Activities Provide Hearing Aids The school actively encourages the children to use hearing aids and trains them to listen and speak. It helps the children in using their residual hearing power. The organization provides digital hearing aids to the children as they provide right kind of amplification and support. Most of our students hail from poor families and cannot afford Hearing Aids which are priced Rs.15000 and above. Auditory Training and Speech Therapy Auditory training: At Ashray Akruti, the students are provided regular, intensive training in listening. Listening might seem easy to a person with hearing. But for a child with hearing loss, listening is often tough without proper training. Like other skills, the skill of listening also must be learned. Most children who are deaf have some hearing. This is called ‘residual hearing’. The child is helped to use this residual hearing with the help of hearing aids or cochlear implants. Speech therapy: The Speech Therapist in the organization provides one-on-one training with children to speak and develop their speech and language skills. Speech therapy is a clinical program aimed at improving speech, and language, and oral motor abilities. Academic Training Oral Aural Method of teaching and Instruction: Regular state syllabus is followed in the school and at the end of the academic program; children take appear for the tenth grade public examinations conducted by the state board. The School follows Oral Aural Method of teaching to develop speech and communication skills among the deaf students. This approach combines speech, use of residual hearing and speech reading. The child is trained to use his/her hearing and develop expressive speech. Special Educators as instructors: The Organization employs special educators to train and educate the children. Instruction to these children are individualized and tailor made to suit their intellectual capacity and residual hearing powers. At the same time, these children are given empowered with skills to cope with the ‘mainstream’ world; they are trained academically to face the school and university qualifying exams. Trained mothers to train the children: The school involves the mothers of the hearing impaired students for their effective development and to promote further learning at home. Some of the mothers have also been trained to teach the Hearing Impaired children. Many mothers are working with Ashray Akruti as teachers. Low teacher student ratio: The Organization maintains low teacher student ratio to enable each student to get the individual attention that they deserve. Visual Information in Teaching: The School relies a lot on the Visual teaching Aids to impart education to the Hearing Impaired Children. Activity/Field trip based Education: The lessons are taught through activities field trips etc. teaching is mainly hands on activity based through field trips, etc. Co-Curricular Activities The Students are encouraged to participate in Co-curricular activities like Dance, Karate, Arts & Crafts, Drawing and coloring. Although the students develop holistically, these activities have added enormous therapeutic value to the children. We have a regular Yoga, Karate and Dance teacher and PT teacher for the students.

We will educate the women about their body, cloth pads, socio-economical benefit and empower them to try new things and enable them to use cup by providing the cloth pad. Once they realizethe ease and benefits, each of them will be empowered to advocate sustainable menstrual practices. Raising: Rs. 50,000-1,00,000 Expected no of Beneficiaries: 1000 (for a year long support) Raising Funds for: Environmental pollution due to plastic waste is a serious cause of concern of our times. Non-bio-degradable waste dumped in landfills and seas are major source of pollution. 78 million metric tons of plastic packaging worldwide of that 40% was landfilled and 32% was “leaked” to the environment polluting land and sea. Women’s hygiene products contribute to this waste to a great extent, especially disposable pads and tampons. An average woman uses almost 10,000 disposable pads amounting to over 100kgs of plastic waste her reproductive lifetime. The carbon footprint of feminine hygiene products is astronomical- especially disposable pads and tampons. A single woman can generate up to 125 Kgs of non-biodegradable waste through her menstruating years. India is a developing country with a population of 1.34 billion, out of which 323.6 million are female between the age group of 15-49. If we consider that 10% of Indian women uses disposable pads then each of them will generate at least 0.5 Kgs of waste every month. In that way, 10% of the female population in India will generate 16180 tons of waste every month. Like every medicine has side effects usage of menstrual hygiene products has fallouts too.Commercially available pads contain bleach, acetone, carcinogenic chemicals, harmful toxins and other irritants impacting women’s reproductive health in a negative way.When women avoid changing soaked pads for longer period of timeit may increase their susceptibility to reproductive tract infections (RTI) and contact dermatitis, which causes irritation, itching and vaginal reactions. Unhygienic menstrual practices lead to bacterial infections which may lead to Toxic Shock Syndrome (TSS). Itis a rare but life-threatening bacterial infection.Research shows evidence of TSS among women using pads and tampons. So create more awareness around sustainable menstruation and giving a better health practice for women we are raising this funds About the Organization: Our vision at Good Universe is a free and equal world where women, children and transgenders can lead a dignified and secure life. We are dedicated to transforming our society by empowering women, children and transgenders so that they have the rights over their bodies and sexuality and the resources to exercise those rights.
