Bani Cheema Executive Director

Bani Cheema is the Executive Director at DASCFT. After having lived in the United States for six years where she received her degree in International Organization and Law, she returned to India to work at DASCFT. While in the USA she worked with various non-profit organizations in the San Francisco Bay Area, such as Gateway High School, Creating Economic Opportunities for Women, Socially Responsible Network. Her experience at these organizations has exposed her to social and economic issues faced by communities around the globe.
At DASCFT, Bani has developed a new initiative under which the foundation helps the visually impaired with their educational requirements and hopes to in the future expand to health education programs especially focused on maternal and child healthcare. She likes to travel, swim, spend time with family and friends and stay on top of socio-economic and political issues locally and internationally.

We have adopted a new technique through which more books can be recorded in a lesser time,“ said Bani Cheema, executive director of the foundation. The foundation has adopted the Digital Access Information System (DAISY), where the digital audio books can be created in half the time; and the navigation system is unique that allows the user to find a particular chapter, paragraph or a line. The system breaks the entire chapter into sections, making it easier for students to find their particular requirement.

“With the higher education exams approaching, we have a huge responsibility of recording the students' syllabi, therefore we are using this system to make things easier,“ said Bani.
Therefore, students can now study without cassettes and CDs and can opt for mobile phones or computers,“ said Bani, adding that she needed more volunteers to record the books, so that the entire syllabi could be provided to the visually impaired students at the earliest.
The initiative taken by the trust has helped many blind children. “My mother started recording books for visually impaired children to improve the methods used to teach them,“ says Bani Cheema, executive director of the foundation.
As my family has always been attached to special students I was drawn to help them instantly,“ says Bani, who now thinks of expanding the library catering to more than 60 students.
