Targetting the problems of hunger, disease and oppression that sadden their lives...
Inspiring in each other trust, confidence and support for one another..."

APD has always responded positively to the needs of the disabled in the community and will continue to do so. The changes that education brings about in the lives of children with disabilities are the positive reinforcement for APD to carry on with the development work for the disabled both in Rural and Urban communities. This has been definitely possible because of the immense support we got and continue to get from individuals and institutions that believed in our endeavors.





APD has several programs under its umbrella. They are: * The Schools programme enables children with disabilities to attend mainstream schools * The training centre helps young people with disabilities to acquiretrade and industry skills * Computer training for all students * The Horticulture training centre * The Outreach Programme for people with disability in 12 slum areas of Bangalore Community Based * Rehabilitation programme for villages in Kolar district * Physiotherapy and the Orthotic appliances unit helping people with disability to be mobile and independent. * Information Guidance and Placement unit bridges the gap between the prospective employer and the candidate





APD’s mission has been to meet the individual needs of people with disability, create awareness, and promote acceptance and inclusion of such individuals into society. APD aims at making every individual feel worthy of life that they are leading and helps them in becoming contributing members of the society in their own way.
