Proposed Project Description

VOCATIONAL TRAINING FOR PERSONS WITH SPECIAL NEEDS

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. For example, having access to technical aids, services or medication, or physical adaptation to the environment may allow individuals to overcome their disabling conditions. Disability is not an all-or nothing phenomenon but involves degrees of difficulty, limitation or dependence, ranging from slight to severe. 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 emphasizes the need for strengthening disability statistics in the Country. The SDGs resolve, by 2030, to end poverty and hunger everywhere; to combat inequalities within and among countries; to build peaceful, just and inclusive societies; to protect human rights and promote gender equality and the empowerment of women and girls; and to ensure the lasting protection of the planet and its natural resources. The SDGs resolve also to create conditions for sustainable, inclusive and sustained economic growth, shared prosperity and decent work for all, taking into account different levels of national development and capacities. The SDGs which aims for ‘leaving no one behind’ builds on the Millennium Development Goals and seeks to complete what MDGs did not achieve, particularly in reaching the most vulnerable. 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.

In India out of 121 Cr of the people 2.68 are disabled. Males are more in number among the one affected with all types of disability. The number of disabled person is highest in the age group of 10-19 years, followed with an age group of 20-29 years, which in total accounts for 33% of the total disabled population of the country. And as  per the report for disabled person in India-2016, 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 negleted.

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.
