Handicap income generation

It isn’t just enough to provide food, shelter and basic education to the children with disabilities. And it isn’t feasible or correct to let them be dependent on us. One of our major efforts also lies in making sure that the handicap children who are sheltered in our organization and those who aren’t get an equal chance at living an independent life. Hence, Shri Jeet Handicap Center is involved in proving skill-based training to handicaps in collaboration with local skill workers and like-minded organizations.

Presently, we are associated with Nepali Lokta paper manufacturer – Monk Paper. They are assisting us with availing the needy with trainings and skill while also giving them job opportunities. The idea behind the project is to provide income generation opportunities and a platform, and in doing so encouraging them to lead an independent, dignified life.

Mamta and Her Struggle

Mamata was diagnosed with polio when she was 12 and had since been unable to make use of the full potential of her legs. Five years back when she came to us, she was using an improvised wheelchair that was too big really; more like a cart. Once she had decided to stay with us, we provided her with a wheelchair. She had never had any education previously. At Shri Jeet Handicap Service Center, she was introduced to letter and words.

Gaurav, 12 – Morang

Gaurav was 7 years old and had legs that had been severed by polio when we encountered him. He couldn’t walk and because his parents couldn’t afford mobile aids, would either be sitting idle at the porch or slugging around, which caused severe bruises and wounds all over his legs . With parents at the farm and a 10 year old sibling off to school, Guarav would be home alone most of the time, with nothing to do but wait and develop an erratic behavior.
