AWARENESS and advocacy

We conduct 3 types of awareness programs.

  • Women Awareness

Focused on how to promote healthy pregnancy and childbirth, how to access prenatal and child health services, understanding child development, childhood disability and early intervention services.

  • Community Awareness Programs

Focused on reducing stigma associated with child disability, improving integration of children with disabilities, how to access health and rehabilitation services and understanding early intervention services.

  • School Awareness Programs

For students and teachers focused on improving integration for children with disabilities into schools and reducing stigma.

Outcomes

From April 2017 to March 2020, a total of 70,376 people in the community attended awareness programs. 
Pre-and post-tests completed by  awareness program participants showed that participants had improved knowledge.

Advocacy

Our therapy services focus on preparing children with disabilities for pre and primary school enrollment. In addition, we advocate for school enrollment, accommodations (including ramps, accessible toilets, modified curriculum, etc.) and integration to individual schools and to policy makers.

From 2017-2020, we have improved age-adjusted school enrollment from 70% to 85% for children 3 years of age and older in our program.
