    Children with Disability

    from Hyderabad


Children in difficult circumstances face several problems, particularly the Children with Disabilities (CwDs) will face different kind of problems and not able to come out of these kind of situation. The Children with Disabilities (CwDs) would face various problems and not able to access food, water and sanitation and other basic facilities. They are also not able to access the education, health and other facilities at household and society levels. The issues are multifold and a comprehensive strategy is required to address these kinds of issues. The interventions like providing pensions and other social security programs are not able to create an enabling environment to improve the ‘self dignity’ and not able to contribute for the overall development process.

There are about 10 lakh PwDs in Telangana State as per the 2011 census. Majority of these CwDs and PwDs are facing problems and not able to access the basic amenities and services and also state entitlements. Considering the need and importance Shepherd Foundation initiated 'PwD strategy' and adopted Community Based Rehabilitation (CBR) as an approach to provide the services and also to work for the rights of the PwD. In the last 3 years Shepherd Foundation could able to take up various activities for the Children with Disabilities (CwDs) and PwDs like Medical rehabilitation services, formation and strengthening of SHGs and mandal level federations, livelihood enhancement activities, capacity building on rights and entitlements, Establishment and management of Neighborhood centres etc.

We have been working with the 500 children with disability in LB Nagar and Uppal areas and wanted to expand our area and to extend the CBR services with more children in Hyderabad city.

We do provide services on health, education, livelihoods opportunities to the girls and presently providing support to about 500 children. The details are as follows:
