Shishu Sarothi – Making World a better place for Disabled Children
Don’t you think we have social reaponsiblities towards our society and country as a citizen .Most of uslead normal lives and have a support system to fall back on. But there are kids who are very much part of the society yet don’t have much support, the disabled children. They are going through tough time and need support morally and financially from us. I know of such an organisation who is doing this commendable job as an CSO (Civil Society Organization). The name of the organization is Shishu Sarothi Center.
What is Shishu Sarothi ?
Shishu Sarothi Centre for Rehabilitation & Training for Multiple Disability. With a very humble and modest beginning in 1987, the founding team of Shishu Sarothi was mainly led by five committed individuals. Today, the organization has grown manifold and comprises of a highly dedicated team offering a range of services for children with physical and developmental disabilities.It is located inGuhawati
Why do they need help ?
People with disabilities (PwDs) face several challenges, including infrastructural barriers, and stigma and discrimination in all parts of the world. In the North-east of India, the problems are further compounded. challenges are intensified due to the geographical terrain making mobility difficult, lack of awareness, and difficulty in the accessibility of qualified rehabilitation professionals and assistive devices. There are also hardly any Government schemes/ services available for PwDs.
