Leaving no one behind: Mainstreaming disability

Losing his father to the deadly Coronavirus, life became all the more difficult for the six-year-old child Abhijit (name changed) from Bhabai village in Uttar Pradesh who has been suffering from multiple disabilities since birth. Going to school like his peers was a distant dream.

With Prajayatna’s intervention, the child is now studying in the Bachpan Day Care Centre, a school for the children with disabilies. Prajayatna’s intervention also helped the child to get a disability certificate and has been given a tricycle free of cost to facilitate easy movement. “Because of Prajayatna, my child is now at least going to school,” says the mother of the child Rani Devi while thanking Prajayatna.

During Covid-induced lockdown, Prajayatna also shared e-therapy videos with the child’s family which helped the child to continue to learn new skills even when at home. The child’s grandfather ensures that the child attends school at least twice a week as they stay a little far from the school. Prajayatna has been consistently putting in efforts to ensure the mainstreaming of children with disabilities through its various initiatives.
