Summary

This project aims to help 22 children with disabilities to access special needs education because all of these children have combined disabilities and inclusive education for them seems impossible as they are mentally retarded with delayed skills. This project will address the problems stated by building a boarding school with a special school environment and recruiting professional teachers and healthcare. Children will be supported to access medical treatment and meet their primary needs.

Challenge

Children with disabilities in the area where this project will be implemented are exposed to rejection, neglect, and lack of access to medical care, education, and social inclusion. Their families see them as a burden because they always need someone to take care of them, they are not active in household chores, they need regular medical care and special education because they are not able to study with others. The families of these children are very poor and unable to meet their basic needs.

Solution

This project will build a boarding school where the children will stay for their primary basic education and medical treatment. Expert teachers, health workers, and social workers will be hired to help these children develop their mental and health status. Children will be supported to access their medical treatment and their families will receive a goat as a source of income and be encouraged to join cooperatives and learn to save for life. Children will be supported to meet their basic needs

Long-Term Impact

This will resolve the issues of special needs education and medical treatment for kids with disabilities in the area. The community will have an available boarding school for children with disabilities. The center will receive other kids who need special education from different corners of the country. This will promote the rights of mentally retarded children to access their very basic rights.
