Home for mentally challenged boys



Home for mentally challenged boys creates a community of people who care, nurture and provides for 80 mentally challenged orphans who live at the Government home for boys in Bangalore, India. We provide them with doctors and nurses who take care of their physical needs and volunteers meet with them every week on a consistent basis to give them the emotional care that they need.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Hundreds of mentally challenged children are abandoned by their family and left in state care for the rest of their life. Though the state provides basic food & shelter, the boys lack the needed special education & skills necessary to live an independent & self sufficient life.

How will this project solve this problem?

For the mentally challenged boys at the state home, occupational therapy & vocational training enables them to live a self sufficient & independent life & earn a living as well.The volunteers who meet with the boys every week creates a community of people who care for them.

Potential Long Term Impact

Occupational therapy and vocational training enables them to live a more independent, healthy and self sufficient life. It also gives them the opportunity to have a steady source of income.
