Disability Awareness Program

We have started a project to raise awareness of disability in both the community and the teaching and medical professions. Meetings are being held in villages and townships and the local people are enticed to attend with the promise of tea and cake. They are then given a talk on general health and child care, birth control, HIV and sexually transmitted diseases, and most importantly to try and break down the taboo that disability is a curse, to make the people aware that we offer help for their disabled children to try and improve status and well-being of those with disability. 

We also are arranging seminars for education, medical and social work professionals to teach them how to recognise forms of disability and bring them in to our attempt to improve the care and inclusion of disabled children.
