Mission One Million

Mission One Million aims to raise a Million Rupee Fund for the cause of the Children affected by Dyslexia. The funds will help create state-of-the-art facilities and run special training programs for the children at the Travancore National School, Thiruvananthapuram, the only one of its kind in Kerala. Our small contribution will make sure that an otherwise brilliant child overcomes his/her challenge and grows up to be an accomplished individual.

Travancore National School

Travancore National School, a special school for children with learning disability, was started in 2013 by Sandhya and Prajin, parents of Tejas, a smart boy affected by Dyslexia. The couple set up the school after they found out that there were no special schools for Dyslexia, in Kerala. Travancore National School enrolled 5 students in the first year and now has 40 children undergoing coaching with specially trained teachers and staff.

Even as it gets enquiries in large numbers, the school, which currently operates out of a house near Sasthamangalam, is unable to register new students for want of facilities and funds. Through Mission One Million, we aim to support the school for two years.

What is Dyslexia?

Dyslexia is a condition characterized by difficulties that mainly affect the ability of a child to read, write and spell. Categorised as a learning disability, it also manifests as a problem in listening, thinking, speaking or the ability to do math. Dyslexia is not an indicator of intelligence and many children who have Dyslexia are of above average intelligence.

Is there a remedy?

While dyslexia is a lifelong problem, there is a range of specialist educational interventions that can help children with dyslexia overcome challenges. The amount and type of intervention necessary will depend on the severity of the condition. Research has found that early educational intervention, ideally before a child reaches seven or eight years old, is the most effective way of achieving long-term improvements in their reading and writing.
