Pam Hackett's 4th India Mission Trip to BGSS
Pam returned to India for her fourth and most impactful trip so far. The Beautiful Gate Special School has grown so much that a second site has been added as well as a vocational program for children who have aged out of the current school. Many of the new students at the school are very physically and mentally challenged, so there was lots of work to do! Thanks to some donations from some of PTS’ districts as well as our corporate support, we were able to bring some new technology to the school including ipads, Alpha Talkers, Adobe readers and some text-to-voice devices. We also re-stocked the teachers with supplies and activities. This year’s parent teacher training was the largest yet. Pam worked with an interpreter so that many parents could benefit from the presentation. We are excited to see BGSS expand and to be a part of the great work they are doing!
