Society for Child Development
The Society for Child Development is a non profit organization that works to create a world of equal opportunities for children and young adults with mental handicap and other disabilities.
Working with Families
At the core is the program "Working with Families" that strives to bring to the fore the issues that need to be addressed by families for helping mentally disabled persons find their rightful place in society. The issues include basic education, independent living, social and adult needs, and viable solutions for vocational training and sustainable livelihoods.
However, we do realize that the onus cannot rest on the family alone and that there needs to be a larger participation of the Community and the State. The related thrust program areas of SFCD are thus directed, with complementary activities that involve:
Integration and Inclusion
Advocacy for policy change, Working for Human Rights, Involving Community Participation, Activities with non-disabled and disabled school children
Disability India Network, Legal Literacy Campaign, Research, Publications
Strengthening Organizations and Capacity Building
Teaching kits, Legal modules, Textbooks, Program analytics
