AMA Education Foundation

 

amaAMA Vietnam Ltd is a non-profit educational foundation based in Singapore that focuses on Vietnam. AMA’s mission is to improve the quality of education in Vietnam gradually by inspiring and improving one teacher at a time. AMA’s scholarship program offers financial and developmental support to teachers and students studying to become future teachers in Vietnam. Their latest project is the Phước Thiện school.In Vietnam, some of the poorest students attend university to become teachers. Unfortunately, teaching is also one of the most under-paid professions in Vietnam, where many struggle to support themselves. Many drop out of the profession if their salaries cannot support themselves and/or their families. Many others are forced to work two jobs in order to meet their rising living costs, which will likely lead to deterioration in the quality of their teaching at school. This is the vicious cycle that AMA strives to change over time.

AMA works to make a tangible impact on each teacher’s life and the quality of their teaching for students in the future. As a result, they can achieve a multiplier effect on the quality of education in Vietnam, addressing poverty and improving lives while advancing educational development in the long run.

Ashray Akruti

The fund will support the education and rehabilitation of Hearing Impaired Children of Ashray Akruti. In India every year 25,000 children are born with hearing impairment. Hearing Impairment is an unseen disability which doesn’t evoke immediate support. 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, Andhra Pradesh, India. What started with just five children in 1996 now caters to the educational needs of 185 children.

So far more than 130 hearing impaired children have been integrated into the normal schools, colleges and universities. Hearing impaired children from outside Hyderabad avail residential facilities provided by Ashray Akruti. Early Intervention Centre for Hearing impaired babies and the Multimedia Computer and Animation Training Centre for Hearing Impaired Youth are the two other new services that were initiated by the organization in the recent years.

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 trained in Oral Aural Method of communication. 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 coached for SSC Board examinations of Government of Andhra Pradesh State. The institution steadfastly maintains a low teacher-student ratio, which enables a special child to get the individual attention.

The philosophy of Ashray Akruti is to help children break the walls of silence, as they believe that every child has the right to learn in his/her own special way and that every child should have the freedom to express himself/herself through speech. [Read more...]
