Ichche Dana, in house school is continually changing based on the needs of our children and young adults.
“The emotional abuse by teachers threatened to break their spirits”.
Ichche Dana Inclusive School was formed within ShishurSevay in 2013. After six years of outside schools, Dr. Michelle Harrison found that the social exclusion and the constant demeaning and belittling of the girls was impeding their learning and negatively affecting their confidence and mental states. She was determined that they be educated in a safe environment where their knowledge, curiosity, and sense of confidence would grow. She also hoped that they would again embrace their futures. Building on ShishurSevay’s experience of inclusive living, Ichche Dana became an inclusive school where children with disabilities are a part of the learning environment, at whatever level possible for each child. Within the next year it will be taking its inclusive educational program into the community.
Ichche Dana was the first customer of Tobii in India. Now, we have two Eye Trackers for some of our students to use.
Ichche Dana Inclusive School is bringing its activity based learning and inclusion into the community by creating a small inclusive play school at no cost to 2-4 year-olds.
