Adopt a Handicap Family
Being born with disabilities is both devastating and challenging for a person. Disabled children are not only severely discriminated against and excluded from the society, they are also often deprived of the basic necessities such as education and many other basic human rights. There is very little support and intervention by the state for the families with disabled children and in almost all the cases, the parents of the disabled are burdened with the long term management of their children.
Although distress of disabled children is prevalent in all communities, those born into families with medium to almost no income are the most vulnerable and are at a greater need for assistance. As these families are often struggling just to obtain basic food and shelter, they cannot afford the time to take care of their children nor can they afford the costs associated with sending these children to specialized schools.
One of the ideas behind this proposal is to create a sponsorship fund for children whose parents cannot afford to pay the school bills. This fund can in many cases provide a strong impetus to the parents to send their disabled children to special school that gives them an opportunity to learn and educate themselves.
