An Awareness Program for Parents of a Special child.

On 12th November, an awareness program was organized by our institution, on behalf of Research Center and SNAC Nodal agency, under the ministry of Social justice and empowerment at Malwan.

The program was a huge success and not deterred by the bad weather (A sudden cyclone hit the Sindhudurg district) twenty eight parents and school representatives participated in this program.

The program was inaugurated by Mr Duelkar, followed by talk on information about schemes and facilities that are provided by central/state government of SNAC

On various discussions, it was observed that people are not aware of the government facilities available for children with special need and therefore they do not avail of such schemes. The first priority was to help them to get disability certificate for their children.

Our active representatives, Mr, Dashrath Parab and Mr. Bakshi, motivated parents to come together towards common goal of helping the special children. Mrs.Mayekar, a parent of a special child, shared her experience of raising a special child.

Dr. Barrister Nath Pai Sevangan agreed to partner with our organization to help the parents in Malvan district in our absence.
