Project Description

Special Education for people with Multiple Disabilities

The key focus of the education programme is to reach out to children and young adults across India with multiple disabilities, make the government and community aware of the lack of services and knowledge about their disabilities and also help them get included in existing systems and services.

Apart from basic education, need based knowledge, consulting and supplemental training, they are provided skills such as life skills, computer training 
and / or arts and crafts which would further become a source of employment for them. These learning techniques or classes not only give them a platform to improve their confidence but also acts as avenues for development of cognitive, physical and socio-emotional skills along with improved chances for livelihood.

Supplementary Education

This programme is targeted to reach children in rural areas where child labor is prevalent and/or the children who belong to socio-economically weaker communities. The programme aims to improve the quality of teaching and learning in government schools, strengthening the stakeholders namely the school management committees, parents, teachers, Gram Panchayat members to monitor the school processes. It is based on conceptual learning so as to make learning easy, instill confidence in children and generate interest in education at large. Apart from learning, life skills trainings are also given for a holistic development of the children.

This programme also strengthens the existing infrastructure within the school system and helps implement the provisions of Right to Education Act. ABF works along with the school systems and ensures through extracurricular activities, a functional and exciting library, sports and various competitions that schools remain an attractive place for children to come to daily.

Remedial Education / Non-formal Education

Even though enrollment in schools are high as a result of RTE (Right to Education), there is a significant percentage of students who continue to drop out of schools due to many reasons such as economic constraints, migration, child labor and girl children taking care of siblings. The programme on remedial education is targeted to reach children in rural India and urban slums specially children with substance abuse and help them provide education which will be able to mainstream them back to age appropriate classes. Students are given after-school support so that they are able to continue to understand the subjects taught in classes well.

Primary Education

This programme is targeted towards the children of tribal communities who have now become the first generation of learners in the region. It is targeted at improving the learning environment in the region with the main focus on developing them as learning centres based on the provisions of RTE. The programme seeks to enrich the existing curriculum through extracurricular activities and sports thereby improving the learning levels of children in Standard 1 to 5.


Secondary Education

The program on secondary education focuses on two groups – girl children from economically disadvantaged families who are also victims of gender bias and children of sex workers in urban areas. Through free education and care, these children are provided with opportunities to learn various skills along with their secondary school education in order to help them be self-sufficient and become socially empowered individuals in future.


Balwadis / Aanganwadis

A key aspect of the Right to Education Act is to provide education for all including children with various disabilities. Through the ‘inclusive Aanganwadi’ programme, ABF works to provide children with multiple disabilities from the slums of Mumbai, a platform to learn and get into mainstream education system faster. This programme works on three fronts – giving the children with disabilities an opportunity to learn, creating awareness amongst the parents on the importance of providing education to all their children and advocating with the government to include these children within their system through trained teachers who can take care of their special needs.

Vocational Training

Formal education system may not give space to children to think scientifically and/ or give them opportunities to learn what they want to, resulting in high drop outs or lack of employability after education especially in rural parts of India. The vocational training programme has helped introduce skill based training and courses within the secondary school curriculum in a states of India thereby enabling children to make informed choices and providing appropriate opportunities of livelihood in future.
