Once more we turn our thoughts as members of the worldwide church, to supporting the children of Ashadeep,the school and orphanage for the disabled in Bijnor Diocese, North India, 215 km north of Delhi. This is the eleventh year of supporting the amazing work being done by the priests and sisters there to bring hope to the very poorest of the poor.
This year our project is to establish an Internet connection at Ashadeep in order to provide professional resources for teachers to help students. This requires purchasing solar panels for power as well as modems and laptops. The government supply of electricity is erratic and limited to a few hours each day. There is also the need for a hearing assessment machine to use for the hearing impaired students.
The total cost of "Getting Wired Up at Ashadeep"is approximately $24,000.00. But, as always, the generosity of St. Patrick's parishioners will go a long way to support this project.
