How we work

We Believe rehabilitation of person with disability means to ensure their economic inclusion leading to social inclusion and rejuvenation of self esteem.

Meager provision of vocation training does not work in rural context. Interventions at multiple levels are essential for sustainable rehabilitation of rural persons with disability.

Based on experiential learning and identified rehabilitation support needs of rural visually challenged youth the organization has adopted approach and practices that have been emerged as the best rehabilitation practices for rural persons with disability. These practices and rehabilitation process has been named as SWADHAR Model for sustainable rehabilitation of rural PWD.

Each phase represent a structured programme of the organization.
