Since August 2016 Unnati Sansthan has started to work with children and persons with disabilities with support of CBM. During the period Unnati has done base line survey in 30 panchayats to identify the numbers of persons with disabilities and their status in communities. In schools most of the children with disabilities are absent or irregular.
Unnati is committed to ensure that every child completes a quality, Inclusive Education without discrimination or exclusion. In the last one year, Our Inclusive Education Programme has supported Children with Disabilities in 150 Villages. We help children with Disabilities to access primary and secondary schools that meet their needs. Unnati is also creating awareness among the communities towards the Right of person with disabilities and breaking the barrier which are taking place in way of Inclusion for children with Disabilities.
Girls with Disabilities experience greater exclusion and injustices as results of their disabilities and gender. They are less likely to go to school and are often considered a burden on the family because they are seen as a non productive member of Society.
Unnati is Motivating parents of Children with Disabilities through various activities for sending their children to schools.
Within one year Unnati enrolled 100 children with Disabilities in Primary and Upper Primary school and promote the participation and involvement of children with Disabilities in school activities. In schools Child Cabinets are becoming platform for children with disabilities where they are sharing their experiences with other friends. 30 persons with disabilities have been linked with government entitlements, assistive devices and pensions.
