Vocational training for people with special needs in India

Requested by

Welfare Organisation for Rural Lean Development (WORLD)

Who are you trying to help? What issue are you trying to address?

This project is about helping the youth and the children suffering from different types of disabilities, being the victims of accidents,or by birth.

These young people feel nervous to mix with normal people and are ignored by most people and are not invited to take part in development programs.

As a result, this group of people fails to establish socially and economically through out their life. Our organisation “WORLD” addresses these poor and distressed children by giving them “VOCATIONAL TRAINING AND EMPLOYMENT SUPPORT SERVICES” within the age of 14 to 21 years to participate with normal children.

VOCATIONAL TRAINING AND EMPLOYMENT SUPPORT SERVICES for them in the past have proved that a little extra care could make them progressive and productive and also eliminating discrimination, abuse and violation against them.

WORLD believes that the social injustice can significantly be reduced if the target beneficiaries can be empowered by providing development opportunities together with capacity building training and post training support services.

The present project proposal for the person with special needs will definitely make a remarkable change in their life and WORLD has taken this training program as a challenge to prove the only service provider of this type in the country. As the other service providers do not intervene with similar care.

What is your project and how will it help?

Community involvement or people participation will be central to the planning and management of special schools and implementation of strategies. Community participation could be operationalised through formation of community groups like center committees village Education Committees etc. These committees will undertake the following activities and responsibilities.

• Selection of Education Volunteers.
• Provision physical facilities to the special needs
• Deciding the time of the school.
• Overseeing the day-to-day running of the vocational training.
• Motivation of parents.

Learner centered and participatory approaches in learning with extensive adoption of Teaching-Learning Material made of locally available cost effective materials, will sustain the learning process. Frequent meetings and consultations with the experts, regular monitoring of the progress and in-service training to the staff will result in quick attainment of project objectives.

Vocational Training for the Person with Disability will be operated under Vocational Training & Education Program of WORLD. Area Organiser will responsible for giving all kinds of technical support and the administration of Vocational Training & Education Programme. Project Coordinator will submit report to WORLD. Key activities of the programme will be implemented by Vocational training for the persons with disabilities team under close supervision of Project Coordinator. The team will make good linkage with community and guardians.

Now it appears that all over the world including India special facilities has been created by the Govt. to assist the disabled to remove their helpless conditions and accordingly actions are in progress. But in reality this class of people is still becoming neglected and deprived from equal right as a citizen. As a result a significant portion of people is remaining outside the framework of national development activities. In India many parents try to hide their disabled children. Because of that statistical bureau can not make a real figure. As per the survey from sample study (Visions January – March 2011) find out the following statistics in percent for India. Accordingly in India about 76.6 million people are suffering with disability. They could be turned as productive man power (P.M.P) through proper Vocational Training and follow up for their socio-economic development. Thereby they could be set in the mainstream of economic and social development.

How can other people partner with you on your project?

Actually we are having affiliated women organisations and self help groups in all our targeted villages. As elucidated above, the project aims at organizing and building people. Community development programs cannot be thrusted upon people. But has to be felt and acted upon by people themselves. Mobilizing people towards this effort would be our way. Therefore, a flow of approach as to “INITIATE” and make people “CONSCIOUS” of prevailing situations and organize people to “TO ACT UPON” this issues is our process. This approach enable people to participate in solving their village issues/problems themselves. A comprehensive health delivery system had to be established with the community participation. The WORLD acts as a initiator and guides, supports and directs people’s action to promote sustainable development of people with special needs.
