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

In this first phase, activities to generate awareness about mental disability among the people of the area will be planned. It is very important to eradicate the lacunae in people’s awareness and knowledge about the causation, characteristics and potentialities of the disabled individuals and people with special needs.

They will primarily work for raising awareness about handling kids with mental disabilities.
AID-Delhi will help in coordinating and money transfer to Parichay





Parichay has an established non formal education program for kids from slum areas (http://parichayonline.org). This program is partly funded by AID-Delhi who will also help in coordinating this project for kids with mental disabilities with people from Parichay. They have staff/volunteers who are certified in dealing with people with mental disabilities. They have already started preparing for their awareness activities and currently teach three kids who have some form of mental disability.
