QUEEN’S ROAD: On the occasion of Teacher’s Day, Rotary Club of Bangalore has identified teachers who have gone the extra mile to enrich the lives of children. This year, the committee decided to award teachers who are involved in teaching children with special needs.

Based on the selection criteria, the committee has chosen Vaishali Pai, founder of Tamahar, an organisation that trains and rehabilitates children with special needs and developmental challenges; Nagaveni N of The Association Of People With Disability (APD)/Shradhanjali Integrated School; and Sandesh H R of EnAble India.

Vaishali Pai mainly teaches children who are suffering from cerebral palsy, autism and other learning disabilities. Sandesh lost his sight at the age of seven and has trained over 700 vision-impaired people to work on computers so that they could access higher education and employment opportunities. He has also trained computer engineers who can in turn teach visually-impaired people.
