Patialaa School for the Deaf and Blind

Building a New Home

The Patiala School for the Deaf and Blind has been a loving and powerful learning center in the state of Punjab, India for 40 years. Unfortunately, the classroom conditions as well as the living conditions for the boarding students have been less then adequate, due to tight spaces and a lack of funds for the center. Sponsored by the DD Puri Foundation, the Center will be moving into a facility more conducive for learning and life skills training.

 For over 40 years, the Patiala Special School for the Blind and the Patiala Special School for the Deaf and Dumb have been providing crucial education and life skills training to those that need it most.

Hard work and helping hands have turned into good fortune for everyone at the center. Soon, construction of a new and much improved school building will be completed. The new building will allow the center to expand. The number of students will more than double, vocational programs will be added to the curriculum, living conditions for students will drastically improve, and more staff will be able to jump on board to ensure every student receives special care and a quality education. Construction at the new site is scheduled to be completed soon.

In addition to critical subjects like math, science, Hindi, and English, the Patiala School places an importance on culture and arts. Students learn song, dance and even craft.
