National Family Health Survey 2015-16 based on Rajasthan statewide sample size estimates that there are 2188 Persons with disabilities (Per 100,000 Population). Reported average figures in Jhunjhunu & Sikar districts translate into 33,445 & 41,900 persons with disability respectively. With 44 % of these being children below 18 (15 % in 0-6 years age group), we have a challenging task cut for reaching out to more than 33,000 children in these two districts.
Through well thought of established sub-system concerning child at focal center , we work closely with different entities in the child environment; be it family, non-disabled children, regular teachers, mass media, professionals across different spectrum, politico-social leadership and finally ideological & belief level interventions Our Rehabilitation Strategy CREAM (Catch Them Young; Rights Based; Engage; Advocate & Maximize Potential) is concentrated around this sub system.
Children body movement, posture, gait & muscles are strengthened as well as improved communication skills. By having a nutritional meal, learning outcomes are made better. Children gain skills needed to live independently or with reduced dependence on community. Their confidence is boosted through exposures. They learn interpersonal skills, independent living and are exposed to varied culture and traditions. Community is also sensitized about disability when our children enter public arena.
We are currently expecting delays in getting funds to this project due to new regulatory requirements that impact GlobalGiving's ability to disburse to organizations in India. GlobalGiving is working hard to address the issue. Donations to this project will be disbursed as quickly as possible.
