Challenge

The Intellectually Disabled Community is the most marginalised section of society in India. This Disability is a developmental disorder with extremely delayed milestones & low cognitive ability. Being a disability of the mind, they do not have the capacity to go through formal education nor the social skills to go out & work in Mainstream jobs. Aside of years of ridicule, the challenge lies in assuring this community has the ability to independently ensure that their future is secure.

Solution

AMBA has derived an alternate educative system to the community of Moderate to Severe intellectual Disabilities. Our ecosystem of Learning & Earning is adaptive, visual & functional, appropriate to their acumen, enabling accurate data entry & audit, making them contributors to family & Society. The process is driven using ICT & peer driven processes in Training & work making the program sustainable. This Economic Empowerment aids them to earn their dignity & respect in the Society.

Long-Term Impact

The Impact has been beyond economic empowerment - eradicating stigma & uplifting a community that has been sidelined & not even recognised as a challenge. We are currently within 475+ collaborations impacting over 12000+ youngsters who were sidelined. The Impact is three Fold, To the Adult who is much more confident & Empowered, To the Parents who are Proud that the child is no more an economic burden & the Institution who Collaborates with AMBA now has a positive growth plan for their future.
