Given the fact that PwDs want autonomy in where and how to live and that they do not want to be shut away in institutions, we have designed a training program to train the primary stake holders as group home managers(GHM) & quality control monitors. This will be an intensive 18 month course for 10 members starting January 2019 including empowerment strategies through experiential learning.The GHM's will manage the then set up assisted Living

The main worry of parents with a child with disability is "What after me?". In India, access continues to be an issue. So adults with disability either get home bound with relatives, or locked up in institutions or get homeless. The concept of independent living with reasonable accommodation still lives in theories. To overcome the barriers and facilitate a safe and supported living space, a demonstrative model is required. The challenge is to create this in the community, run by disabled people
