Summary

Divine Light Trust has 50 multiple disabled children.The background of these children is socially, economically backward and few of them are orphans. In order to eke out their daily bread, these children are neglected by their parents. Due to severe disability these children need individual care and special training. Hence your support will help them to obtain a residential education, training and care at free of cost in our center so they will come to the mainstream and lead a dignified life.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Divine Light Trust has 50 Blind and multiple disabled children (Like, Blindness with mental retardation or hearing loss). Background of these children are invariably socially, economically backward and most of them are orphans & severely disabled due to malnutrition.Due to poverty these children are neglected by the parents. As a result, children are not getting nutritious food, accommodation and appropriate education and training, medical facility and congenial atmosphere in their home.

How will this project solve this problem?

This can be solved by providing nutritious food & accommodation for their stay & appropriate education & training to suit their age and disability. Training includes basic self-care, functional & educational skills, fine motor, visual motors,horticulture,craft & tailoring, orientation and mobility, braille - reading and writing, mathematics through Taylor frame,abacus & other core subjects to cope-up with their non-disabled peers.

Potential Long Term Impact

This is an on-going program. On successful completion of the education & training, the visually impaired children will be integrated in the normal school & encouraged to continue their studies to take up suitable job. In case of multiple disabled children suitable training & counseling will be given to the parents along with their children in order to rehabilitate in the community and to bring them to the mainstream. So far, more than 1460 children were benefited from this center.
