|Ashanilayam School for speech and Hearing Impaired was started in 2009 at Prakasampalli in YSR Kadapa district. It is seven kilometers from Kadapa town. It was started by the Society of Christu Jyothi Sisters, a diocesan congregation of Kadapa diocese. At present there are 65 children who are speech and hearing impaired. We have classes from 1st Grade to 6th Grade. It is a Residential School. CJ Project serves children who belong to the rural villages of Kadapa and neighboring districts. The children are provided with hearing aids and are given speech therapy. It is supported by Foundation for Children in Need from 2010. CJ project is grateful to FCN and the sponsors for helping us to take care of the food, accommodation, health care and education of these children.
