SAVE THE QUEST

PROJECT

PROJECT EYE QUEST

 

The project Blind School is one of the most important and the very first project taken up by Save the Quest. This project is operational since January 2013. Our objective is not just assisting the visually impaired students but to empower them in carrying out the very basic routine life.

STQ volunteers act as scribes and tutors for numerous visually impaired students from the University of Delhi, JNU and National Association for the Blind. These students have also helped with their assignments and their study material is provided to them in audio formats. We associated ourselves with National Association for the Blind, R.K. Puram since July 2013. STQ also holds monthly events and competitions at the associations.

STQ has also started the ‘I Pledge Campaign’ under the Blind School Project itself. In this campaign, we drive the people around us to pledge that they would never discriminate among people on the basis of their disabilities. This initiative includes various sensitization drives which in our view help the people to be aware of how it feels to be visually impaired and why those people demand no discrimination.Project Blind School started with just one kid who volunteered for teaching at the National Association for The Blind, R.K. Puram. And today, STQ is proud that it has come a long way since its inception. STQ is officially associated with National Association for The Blind, R.K. Puram and looks after the requirements of 200 children staying at the place. A project with the same name is also run by the STQ in DCAC in collaboration with the NSS unit of the college. STQ is also officially associated with the equal opportunity cell, DCAC. Volunteers at STQ are constantly growing in numbers and currently stands at a figure of more than 100 volunteers.

STQ plans to expand the project, associate with other institutions for disabled students to carry on the spread of this noble deed.

MOBILE SCHOOL

Project Operational since: August 29. 2015

Education is one of the fundamental rights of human beings but unfortunately, poor children are deprived of this right. Only when each child is educated can we create a level playing field for our future generation One day, we saw some kids begging at a traffic signal. Little innocent eyes, baby fingers, gullible minors. What would their future be, we thought? When most children enjoy life, get an education & learn the values to grow up into a wonderful human being, these street children are easily persuaded to earn for the family, to beg for their basic necessities of food, clothing & shelter. This is when we started Save The Quest Mobile School. We started this initiative from R. K. Puram, Sector 4 Rain Basera, Delhi, and then branched out to teach other kids in the nearby area. Currently, STQ mobile school has taken responsibility of more than 50 students for their education, books, play materials and some refreshments. In less than one year, we have managed to decrease the begging rate in this area by 80%.of education.
