The Lobo School for the Blind works to give their students said knowledge and training, but also opens the door to a plethora of opportunities. Through the Lobo School for the Blind, these students are taught to lead independent lives and reach their full potential. However, some of the modern technology that can take this education to the next level is quite expensive. I was motivated to donate to this school through the Konkani Charitable Fund in hopes that these new technologies will create a variety of new opportunities for these students.

About Neha:

Neha Basti is a high school student in Chicago, Illinois. Despite her distance from her birthplace of Mangalore, India, she tries to bring her Indian heritage into her daily life whenever possible. She enjoys music, dance, and anything related to food. After 10 years of studying Bharatanatyam, she performed her Arangetram, or graduation, in Mangalore on August 9, 2014. She asked that her guests and well wishers donate to the Lobo School for the Blind through the Konkani Charitable Fund. Through their generosity, $1,500 was raised for the cause.

Neha is our hero for giving up here Arangetram presents to help the students at Lobo School for blind in Mangalore , India. We sincerely hope more young students in this country follow Neha Basti Shenoy  & Roshan Pai's example & help poor & needy people in India by raising funds . The directors of Konkani Charitable fund will extend all the help for young students if they want to raise funds for Konkani Charitable Fund to help Mentally & Physically challenged children  & poor students to complete their education.
