Challenge

Physical and financial barriers exclude the 25000 persons with disability living in Bangalore Rural villages from accessing health, education and rehabilitation services. Stigma prevents them from participating in social events. Treatable impairments are ignored due to inability to access medical facilities. Youth are unemployed due to lack of education and skill training. Children with intellectual disability have no access to specialized care. Women face difficulties due to lack of toilets.

Solution

Access to rehabilitative services will be provided through home-based care provided by village rehabilitation workers assisted by a physiotherapist and psychologist. Secondary/tertiary care will be provided through referral to our speciality departments. Need-based aids and appliances will be distributed. Parents would be encouraged to enrol disabled children in schools. Early child intervention therapy will be provided close to their homes. Access to entitlements from Govt. will be facilitated

Long-Term Impact

300 PWDs will be overcome mobility challenges moving them from dependence to independence. 2000 disabled persons lifted out of poverty and social isolation through access to Govt. entitlements. 200 children with intellectual disability will become independent in their daily activities through therapy. 10 mothers having children with intellectual disability will enhance their socio-economic condition through livelihood activities. 20 disabled women will become independent by providing toilets
