Survey on children with Disability: Vimukti Pothnal

“Disabled children in Manvi Taluka miss out due to lack of support services…”
On 27th April 2018, Vimukti with the collaboration of Ensemble Agissons, France, under “HEALTH FOR ALL” project involving more than 16 staff actively participated and identified differently abled children in 16 villages of our working area. Worldwide, 89% of children go to school. However, only 2% of Children with disability in Manvi Taluka from low and middle income families attend school. People with disabilities have generally poorer health, lower education achievements, fewer economic opportunities and higher rates of poverty than people without disabilities. This is largely due to the lack of services available to them and the many obstacles they face in their everyday lives.

They even don’t have medical certificate to ascertain disability, leaving them out of the radar of many government schemes. Keeping these thoughts in mind, lately Vimukti conducted a survey report provides the best available evidence regarding children with disability(physically handicapped, Blind, Deaf, Dumb, lame, leper, crippled etc.,) and what works to overcome barriers to health care, rehabilitation, education, employment and support services, and to create the environments action for government to help these beneficiaries. Thus promote accessibility in the schools for children with disability. As a result Memorandum was submitted concerned authority in the district to provide various government facilities to these little deprived children in the society; So that these facilities will help them to grow, to learn and to smile like any other normal child in the society.
