since moving to our Mafashkanpet campus, near Redhills and Manali . Children in our institution are mostly from the lower economic strata in our society. In fact this is the guiding principle in choosing our target group. Typically the child who is a student at Anbumalar comes from a home where the father is a coolie. The parent/s may be unemployed or household helper/s or daily wage worker/s. The father could be a drunkard. The child may be one of several children in the family. There is a good chance that such a child is neglected or under-cared for at home due to the above mentioned reasons. And it is not unlikely that the mentally challenged child from such homes is left to wander about without proper care and be in a pitiful situation. Due to their personal and/or socio-economic problems, the parents may not take the initiative to send the
child to a special school. There is a real danger that such a child may be rejected by the family who may feel that he/she is a burden to them and society. Such children, when they grow up,
loiter the streets as mentally unstable beggars or destitute. Anbumalar intervenes in the lives of such children at a crucial juncture in their lives and rescues them from a potentially disastrous future. We send our staff to locate such children and arrange for them to be transported to our school every day or provide them necessary special education, vocational training and therapies (Physiotherapy, speech therapy, occupational therapy) in a small way for those needing it and referring those needing more special education, vocational training and therapies to other centers to them. Our service to them has been totally free of cost. Thus we assist in bringing some hope
to those who were otherwise in a terrible situation.
We herewith humbly seek your prayers and valuable support – in cash through this avenue for the mentally challenged children in our organization to enable us to continue our service towards ensuring the health, well-being and development of these special children who also share this world with us.
