Project Description

The program addresses the needs of people with disabilities in the following ways:

  • Work with pregnant women to prevent disability: This involves regular monitoring and tracking of pre-natal care received by all pregnant women in the intervention area and referrals to appropriate medical services with financial assistance provided to access the same.
  • Early identification of disability: This involves thorough monitoring and tracking of children for the first 1000 days to assess any developmental delays and ensure appropriate referrals as well as financial services to access the same. 
  • Care and support through day-care facilities: The day-care facilities involve interventions to support and enhance the psychomotor and psychosocial development of the children to ensure they are school-ready. Once they are sufficiently prepared to go to school they are linked to special schools and financial assistance is provided for completing formal education.
  • Certification and referrals for health, education and livelihood and linkages to government facilities: The program has an end-to end engagement where people with disabilities are identified, the appropriate certificate of the type and extent of impairment is procured and they are linked with special schools, training centres or employment and they are given financial assistant to access the same. 
  • Sensitization of the community: This involves awareness campaigns, street plays and training to be responsive and caring to the needs of people with disabilities and reduce the stigma around disability.
  • Capacity building of local government staff and health workers: This involves training programs with experts about the causes and prevalence of disabilities in the community as well as the rights of people with disabilities. 
  • Samuhik Vikas Samiti (Community Development Group): Apnalaya has trained a cadre of 90 volunteers who have begun identification and referrals on their own. They are also conducting awareness to create an inclusive environment for people with disabilities and training other volunteers. These groups will help people with disabilities access better education, training and livelihood opportunities as well as their civic entitlements. 
  • Advocacy: Apnalaya along with community volunteers will be involved in working with local government stakeholders such as MCGM both Health and Education departments at the municipal level and ICDS, Social Justice and Special Assistance Department and the Social Welfare Department at the State level.
