Challenge

Many persons with disabilities are confined to their homes, and another family member often has to act as full-time care-giver. This confines both of them to the house, and prevents them from leading productive lives, pulling the family into a vicious cycle of poverty.

Solution

The ATMA Mobility Project has provided free mobility aids to 47 persons in two phases this year. In the third phase, 31 persons have been selected after expert assessment. Custom-made devices will be provided to each person, with training, to ensure that their mobility actually improves, and they become more independent. This gives more free time to the caregiver also. This project will provide sewing machines, skill training, etc.to support the family of the person with a means of livelihood.

Long-Term Impact

By providing mobility aids, the person will become more independent. Livelihood support will be provided to the person or any other family member. This will help them to come out of the poverty cycle.
