Challenge

"People with disabilities are vulnerable because of the many barriers we face: attitudinal, physical, and financial. Addressing these barriers is within our reach and we have a moral duty to do so...... But most important, addressing these barriers will unlock the potential of so many people with so much to contribute to the world. Governments everywhere can no longer overlook the hundreds of millions of people with disabilities who are denied access to health, rehabilitation, support, education

Solution

Since 21 years the Annamma Society has been providing rehabilitation coupled with residential care, educational support and medical treatment for over 140 of those disabled children in its own 'Special School'. As the children hail from rural areas, they are mostly orphans or single parented. The Annamma Organization has planned for a multi-pronged strategy to empower the inmates of the Special School and young people with disabilities to have access and benefit from education and other progrms

Long-Term Impact

The children are provided with appropriate and innovative therapies, medical treatment and offer interventions that will facilitate inclusion and full participation of children with disabilities and their families. The children are offered with wholesome counseling to gain self-confidence. The children are imparted with educational support and guidance. The children offered medical care and treatment by the specialized doctors. The children are provided with nutritious food.
