Challenge

In Puducherry (union territory of India), 30189 persons are living with disabilities (data source - Census 2011), out of them 2335 are Autistic / Mental Retardate & 2226 are suffering with Multiple Disabilities. Due to lack of awareness; most of the Children with Disabilities (CwDs) are always subject to isolation, violence & neglection ; not only in society but their own families too. If they born in poor families; then their suffering will increase double, due to lack of financial resources

Solution

This project will help 20 destitute children with developmental & intellectual disabilities to access therapeutic treatment, special education, Sports & vocational trainings (free of cost) and also provide opportunities to parents to learn about the disabilities. Which will be helpful to change their mind-sets & acceptance of persons with disabilities in mainstream society in India.

Long-Term Impact

Once parents became educated in disabilities and related issues. They can easily identify their child needs & medical condition and will not isolate, neglect. Free services will motivate underprivileged parents to bring their children with disabilities for rehabilitation/treatment.
