Summary

Ilavarasan, ten years old, is Mallika's son. They belong to the Malayali tribe residing in the remote villages in the reserve forests of Pachamalai hills in Tamil Nadu. He is a specially-abled child. Since both of his parents are tribal peasants, they could not afford medical attention catering to his unique needs. This project aims to provide shelter for Ilavarasan at a care center in Tiruchirapalli, the nearest city, to support his medical expenses, education, and vocational training.

Children with disabilities in India are subject to multiple deprivations and limited opportunities in several dimensions of their lives. Their families and caregivers also go through a lot of stress and challenges in having a person with a disability at home, which ultimately leads to grave discriminatory practices towards these children.

Long-Term Impact

This project will help many specially-abled children from the remote tribal area to access healthcare and education. This would help the family to attain self-sufficiency in the long run. And also support with nutrition and education for other children who are in lack of getting those aspects.
