We feel truly happy to introduce to you some of Lakshyam’s exceptionally brilliant and bright kids who have successfully fought their health problems. Their love for life inspires us to extend the best of resources to them.
Taushik suffers from a genetic skin disease known as Lamellar Ichthyosis that causes the skin to have printed marks all over the body along with generalized scaling. Taushik’s skin turns red with irritation in summers and extremely dry in winters due to his condition. With the support of Fortis Hospital, Lakshyam is now getting Taushik treated. The treatment could cause damage to his liver that might be treated but his skin would always look the same. The School of Lakshyam has become a second home for Taushik.
Samaika is Taushik’s sister and has the same skin condition. Her condition was revealed few days after she was born. Knowing the terrible implications of the skin disease, Lakshyam organized constant medical care from Kandhari Skin Clinic in Vasant Vihar, New Delhi, sponsored by Delhi West Round Table 50 of Round Table India. The issue is a lifetime problem, but care and regular medication will make Samaika’s condition better.
Deepu was born with a hearing impairment. But this hindrance has not stopped the young boy from comprehending conversations around him through expressions and hand gestures. Lakshyam has successfully found a donor for him.
Kishan suffers from mental illness since birth. He writes well for his age and tries to concentrate hard enough to understand the lessons, despite being deaf and mute. This disciplined young lad needs urgent reinforcements to help his condition and provide the required means of education. His silence speaks volumes of his yearning to learn and Lakshyam hopes to provide him with the best of facilities at the earliest.
Ankit is 9 years old and is suffering from Club foot or clubfoot, also called congenital talipes equinovarus (CTEV), which is a congenital deformity involving one foot or both. The affected foot appears to have been rotated internally at the ankle. Without treatment, people with club feet often appear to walk on their ankles or on the sides of their feet. Due to this problem he is unable to walk. Lakshyam has helped Ankit to successfully go through 3 operations and is providing him with medicines and all the other things that follow. A student from IIT Delhi takes 2-3 hours classes for him so that his studies don’t get affected.
Kalpana is suffering from Pityriasis Alba, a skin disorder that mostly affects children and young adults, causing scaly and itching rashes. Unable to afford the treatment, Lakshyam is helping her in her treatment by providing her medicine expenses from February.
A group of 7-10 ladies is part of Lakshyam for last 2 years. Earlier, these ladies had no means to earn. But now, these ladies make bags and Enact Ramjus provide them with charges for materials and stitching. This helps them to earn Rs. 3000-4000 per month from home itself, hence making them self dependent and they are now able to contribute to the family as well.
Seema Midha during her workshop recognized two kids, Ashmita and Sakina who are brilliant in dancing. She contacted Moving Souls Academy and they themselves saw their dance and gave them the opportunity to perform in one of their events. Ashmita and Sakina not only performed in their event but now are also a part of Moving Souls for six months now. They are learning dance for free.
Ghaziabad center started off with only 15 kids who were deprived of education and other facilities. Lakshyam lent them a helping hand and now these kids are not only receiving education but also earning themselves a living by making products out of waste material.
Nazma, 22, is a teacher at the Lakshyam School. She began working at the Centre to gain new experiences, with a lot of excitement and even trepidation. Nazma highlights and aptly sums it up, "We are really lucky to have such a supportive and encouraging boss in Raashi ma’am to have reached this milestone. People in and around Lakshyam school recognize me and respect me. I have an identity, which gives me indescribable happiness and satisfaction. Belonging to the slums, it's really a matter of pride for me."
Amrita is all of 20 but is an eager-to-learn and experienced teacher at the School of Lakshyam. The exposure she has received during the last couple of years has been nothing less than a learning experience that has been a reward in itself. The confidence, knowledge, skills, strengths and most importantly, lessons for a lifetime, has made her proud of herself as they have surpassed all her expectations. Amrita now plans to further hone her craft skills, work harder with the children at the School and continue earning for herself instead of relying on anyone else.
