Success stories

Ms Bertina Lyngdoh, Currently teaching English in the Ajmal Foundation located in Hojai, Assam, Bertina was awarded the Meritorious Scholarship of the State Resource Centre on Disability Affairs, Civil Hospital, Shillong when she pursued her Post-Graduation (MA in English) and had? received a monthly scholarship of ?4,000/- per month during the two years of her studies. Being visually impaired, this scholarship helped her in her photocopying notes, for getting my study material from Cyber cafes, for my taxi fare when I could not board the NEHU College bus, canteen fees, etc. Though fluent in Braille, she could not find any college books that had Braille. Therefore, she sought the help of some friends & relatives who could dictate the study material to her for a more in-depth understanding of the subject matter. Using the scholarship given by the SRCDA, she could pay a small fee to these friends and relatives for their time and effort.
