Challenge

In India 70 million people are with disabilities, among them 82% live in extreme poverty conditions. In Karnataka, where Margadarshi operates, the situation of women with disability are severe due to neglect by their families, lack of support, lack of integration at all levels including that of education, medical, vocational and employment. When they belong to poor families the condition is further worsened and totally neglected.

Solution

Margadarshi has taken up home for the physically challenged women with no means of support or having very little means. They are offered residential care, medical care, physiotherapy and vocational skills in addition to grooming them to develop leadership and life skills. Margadarshi prepares the girls with disability to enter the Society as educated, individuals capable of economic independence and raising families. Provide women who are not literate with skill based work suited to them.

Long-Term Impact

30 Young girls with disability, being Educated will get jobs and take care of themselves and their families. 20 Women with disability will earn a living through the sale of their skill work (making handicrafts items, paper bags, etc.). Thus all of them are no longer financially dependent on others, rather become financially Independent and contributing members of Society.
