REHABILITATION OF PHYSICALLY & MENTALLY CHALLENGED

Mainstreaming of the Persons with Disability (PwDs) including Children with Disability (CwDs) has been an important concern of the organization. With a helping hand from CMI St.Thomas Province Kozhikode, the organization promotes the community based rehabilitation of CwDs through its community centres. The components of the program include medical aid, counseling, educational aid, vocational training for initiating livelihood, empowerment through groups of CwDs and their parents and their access to the government programs like pension, rail/bus concession etc.

At present 150 CwDs/PwDs have been getting the benefits of the CBR program as a step towards integration in the mainstream of society.
The aim of the CBR interventions include:-
a. The child participates in the family activities.
b. The child participates in the activities outside the family.
c. The child/youngster attends school, has a job or another meaningful day spending.
d. The parents know how to cope with the disability of the child.
