I am fundraising to help developmentally disabled children

Ask for an update


On a trip to Ranthambore national park, I came across an NGO called Yash Rehabilitation Centre for Handicapped Children, situated in Sawai Madhopur. A non-profit voluntary association registered in 2006, created solely with the purpose of helping the cause of developmentally disabled and minimal brain damaged children. The institute was born out of the living faith and optimism of a mother having a differently abled child. It is not just a non-governmental organisation or a school of a different kind, it is the realisation of a long cherished dream; it is a social movement; it is an infinite process. Their mission is to provide a quantum leap for the welfare and rehabilitation of children whose only fault is to have been born without normal faculties. Ensuring this welfare is the collective responsibility of a progressive and egalitarian society of which these children have a right to be an integral part.

The institute makes these children enjoy every moment of their presence at the campus, encourage them to bring out their inner feelings and talent, help them learn things that make them able and confident citizens. On one hand, they provide them with education, while on the other; they assist them in acquiring physical abilities and strength. Excursions are taken up at regular intervals so that they can see the different dimensions of the world they are part of, and social/cultural programs are organised to facilitate their interaction with the society. All this has just one aim: to make these children a normal citizen in every aspect and to make them feel they are accepted.

The Special School educates and rehabilitates over 50 mentally handicapped children with the help of the directors, 06 trained professionals and teachers/aides. Admissions are not restricted by economic factors and as a result, fifty percent of the school's students, who belong the the weaker sections of society are beneficiaries of freeships. In house professional expertise is available in the form of a speech therapist, occupational therapist and a special educator trained in the delhi with Degrees in Special Education. It also has a association with highly competent doctors- physician, pediatrician, neurosurgeon and eye specialist.

What I am looking for, is to raise funds for this wonderful cause. The hope that no child is turned back due to lack of funds. Each one of them gets the life of respect and dignity that they deserve.
