Project Description

Project Brief
Ratna Nidhi seeks to physically and economically rehabilitate people with Movement disability in Maharashtra by providing them with artificial prosthetic aids and skill training.  
The following steps will be involved in implementing the prosthetic aid project:
1.      Beneficiary Mobilization
Our team of social workers will be responsible for mobilizing the beneficiaries from different slums in the proposed location. The beneficiaries are from low income groups with a salary range of Rs.5000 to 15,000 per month. Many of them work in the informal sector and barely make enough to survive. Hence we cater to such groups and we will be giving special preference to women and children for this project.
2.      Screening camp
A screening camp will be organized across Mumbai where our technicians and prosthetic engineers will take measurements of the beneficiary in order to manufacture the artificial limb.   
3.      Manufacturing the prosthetic limbs
We have a dedicated team of prosthetic engineer and technicians who have over 15 years of experience in manufacturing artificial limbs. The team will be travelling to different camp locations to take measurements of the beneficiaries.  These measurements will then be bought back to our Jaipur foot centre in Mumbai and the aids will be manufactured by our technicians. We will be manufacturing Below elbow prosthetic hands, Unilateral/Bilateral Jaipur foot, Knee Ankle Foot Orthosis (KAFO) Calliper and Ankle Foot Orthosis (AFO) Calliper. 
4.      Distribution camp and physiotherapy
After a month of the screening camp, a distribution camp will be organized to provide and fit artificial limbs to the identified beneficiaries. The beneficiaries will also be provided with free physiotherapy by our physiotherapist. This will ensure that their muscles are strengthened over time and they can comfortably walk around in their new limb.
5.      Project Monitoring
Our team will have a follow up call/visit post the distribution camp with the beneficiaries, ensuring that they are using the limbs and practising the physiotherapy regularly.
 
SKILL TRAINING PROJECT
The following steps will be involved in implementing the skill training project:
Beneficiary Identification
Beneficiaries will be identified as per the selection criteria set by Ratna Nidhi. Beneficiaries in the age group of 18 to 55 years belonging to the lower income group will be considered for this program. Interviews will be organized with the beneficiary to gauge aptitude and willingness to be skill trained.
Social Grooming
The following components are covered in the social grooming classes
·         Importance of grooming- why impressions matter
·         How to groom yourself- cleanliness, hygiene and dressing
·         Manners & golden words- politeness
·         Appropriate style of conversation and questioning- open and close ended questioning
·         Greetings and handshakes- how to greet superiors and handshake styles
·         Posture, body language, hand gestures and facial expressions
·         Self-introductions and elevator pitches- Key points to cover while introducing yourself (name, surname, education, current job, family, hobbies and goals)
·         Interview tactics – tips and tricks to crack an interview
English speaking
 
Post the social grooming classes have been conducted all the beneficiaries will begin with English speaking classes for 4 months. Ratna Nidhi has partnered with Speakwell Academy who will train the beneficiaries into English speaking
Speakwell has classes all over Mumbai which will make it easier for our beneficiaries to travel to the training center as per the proximity to their homes.
 
Computer Training
Ratna Nidhi has partnered with Stek and Keerti Academy who will be responsible to training our beneficiaries into computer literacy. Beneficiaries will be trained in basic computer skills.
 
Post training
  Ratna Nidhi will assist in placing the beneficiaries through its network which will help them earn a living and be financially independent.
