Project Synopsis

A disability is a result of the interaction between a person with a health condition and a particular environmental context. As per Census 2011, in India, out of the 121 Cr population, about 2.68 Cr persons are ‘disabled’ which is 2.21% of the total population. In an era where ‘inclusive development’ is being emphasized as the right path towards sustainable development, focused initiatives for the welfare of disabled persons are essential. This project seeks to empower person with disability, and help them to become independent and engage them in income generation activity. We have been working in this area from the past 20 years, under the aegis of Mata Bhagwanti Chadha Niketan-A School for children with Special Needs. The mission of our organization is to make person with disability a productive member of the society, so that they can live a life of dignity and self-respect.

Proposed Project Description

PROJECT RATIONALE:
 
A disability is a result of the interaction between a person with a health condition and a particular environmental context. Individuals with similar health conditions may not be similarly disabled or share the same perception of their disability, depending on their environmental adaptations. As per Census 2011, in India, out of the 121 Cr population, about 2.68 Cr persons are ‘disabled’ which is 2.21% of the total population. Uttar Pradesh is one of the Indian State that has highest number of people living with disability. Empowerment and education are other two domains which remain neglected. For the empowerment of disabled population, the attainment of education and participation in economic activity are extremely important.
This emphasizes the need for strengthening disability statistics in the Country This project seeks to empower person with disability, and help them to become independent and engage the in income generation activity, considering their socio-cultural and financial needs. The global disability report demonstrate that disability is not limited to any community, place, religion, or society. Majority of people with disability lives in extreme poverty and are often stigmatized by the society. They have to struggle for opportunity equalization on one side and on other one for their right.The proposed project seeks to enhance skills and generate employment for 80 people with disabilities, who would be placed in the training workshop, through Mata Bhagwanti Chadha Niketan-A School that runs for children with Special Needs.
