Balajothi objectives are to meet all the needs of the disabled children including Transportation, Rehabilitation, Therapy & Training, Special Education, Learning Aids, Learning Material and especially Nutrition. The importance of a nutritious and well balanced meal cannot be over stressed. We provide mid-day meals to every child which ensures a healthy body leading to a healthy mind.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
Apart from the nutrition, another critical factor for many parents is the motivation to send the disabled child to the school is they would get at least one good meal. However, due to challenges with funds at times we are forces to settle with just snacks or a fruit instead of a proper meal, this impacts children's attendance at the school and in turn their health & nutrition.
How will this project solve this problem?
This project intends to raise funds to support the the mid-day meals provided at the school, which in turn not only helps with child's attendance at the school benefiting benefit from the other activities at the school, it will also help with their health and nutrition.
Potential Long Term Impact
Apart from nutrition, these children are taught the process of self feeding or eating by itself as most of the disabled children lack in this area of development. This is part of our training to make every disabled child to become self reliant.
