1. School for Spastic Children
Child & Women Care Society plans to set up a School for Spastic Children [SSC] in NCR Delhi. The Municipal Corporation of Delhi [MCD] & the Delhi Development Authority (DDA) will be requested for space and support will be sought from local builders and construction companies will be used to set-up the Centre. Financial Institutions will be involved in coordinating the incomes/payments and safety deposits to ensure a secured life for the Spastic Children. Corporate Houses will be invited to provide assistance and training to their occupational therapy giving it an economic angle.
Interactive workshops would be organized by CWCS to discuss the models being used internationally with all the project partners. These would then be redesigned to involve the family and make them socially relevant for Indian needs.
Once the School for Spastic Children is established, CWCS will undertake a nationwide advocacy campaign that will highlight the need to quantify and qualify the problem of Spasticity in India and propose to undertake a detailed National Survey of the Handicapped in India. CWCS School for Spastic Children will cater to those groups who cannot afford to go for a regular treatment. The CWCS School for Spastic Children to be set-up in NCR Delhi will be the first of nation-wide branches of such schools exclusively run and managed by CWCS.
2. Women Employment Programme
It is a fact that families value systems and their relationship with community revolve more around the woman than the man. Identifying the urgent need to empower the woman of tomorrow with the knowledge of and orientation towards acquiring a better quality of life. After much deliberation and inputs, both internal and external, with sensitized people in society, the Child and Women Care Society [CWCS] has structured a Women Empowerment Programme, titled Mein Bhi KALPANA CHAWLA Banungi.
Experience has shown that women are natural managers and entrepreneurs. For example, women entrepreneurs solely run Lijjat Papad, SEWA, etc. We also have various micro-credit schemes, Cooperatives such as Dastakar and Amul Milk Cooperative, with women in leadership roles.
The single most important aspect of this Programme will be the success achieved in inspiring a woman to make the effort to seek out new possibilities of growth and development with the help of her mentor. The focus of “Mein Bhi KALPANA CHAWLA Banungi” shall be underprivileged young-women between 18 to 25 years of age.
3. Educating the underprivileged children
