Children with disabilities are included in regular schools so that they could play with other children, study with them, compete with them and just be a child!

However, some children cannot go to school. These are children with severe and multiple disabilities. Here, we train the parents and care-givers to provide home based education. Mothers’ Support Groups are formed in the village to provide a platform of support the families having children with severe and multiple disabilities.

Child Support Groups are also formed to assist all children with disabilities as and when required.
