Thank you! You can rest assured your contribution will be used to make a real difference
THE 800 children with disabilities under Satya's care mainly belong to families who can't afford the medications needed to help cope with their disorders. Just ₹850 is enough for a month's supply for one child.
AS the only early intervention centre in Puducherry, here a team of specialists identify disability and malnutrition at the initial stages of a child's life and help provide the right support so they can reach their maximum potential. Around 125 children between the ages of 0 and 6 years from both urban and rural areas of Puducherry and the neighbouring districts of Tamil Nadu have benefited by this centre. The cost of care for one child per month is ₹3,750.
VOCATIONAL training plays a crucial role in making persons with disabilities self-reliant and improving their quality of life. Satya provide them on-the-job training in various occupational skills, use a simulated work environment to build their confidence and help them in tapping potential employment opportunities. Just ₹3,000 can help train these young adults in various skills such as bakery, back office data processing, housekeeping and organic farming.
THE Alternative Inclusive Centre for Education is the newest addition to Satya's umbrella of services. Despite the right to education, children with disabilities often excluded which further pushes them down in the social ladder. Following a mainstream curriculum, this school provides a safe environment where children are not labelled. And with the support of a psychologist and counsellors, students are encouraged to reach their full potential. Every ₹5,000 will support a child for a month.
Satya have been a boon to parents like us. The individual care and support that is given not only ensures improvement in the child's condition but also gives us parents a lot of confidence and support to face the future.
I am very impressed by your facilities and the individual attention offered to the kids. Brilliant to have the mothers and siblings involved and hope to see more fathers in the future. Really glad I made time to visit and will be glad to do so again.
I was really overwhelmed by seeing the kind of service Satya is doing for the disabled and disadvantaged children of society. No doubt, it is one of the largest and well-run organisations in the country. They are really doing yeoman services.
