Please don’t ignore us, or look the other way when we approach you. Doing that to us will not make us or our disability go away. We didn’t have a choice about our disability, but you definitely have a choice in how you accept us!

Children with special needs
India has a very large percentage of people with special needs. Around 80 million Indians require special needs for their living. Illiteracy, Unemployment and Poverty among the people with special needs is high. One in 12 households have at least one child with special needs. The care and attention that is required for such children is more; but often they are neglected and treated badly.
Most special-needs children
- lack proper education
- have poor health
- treated badly in the society
- have poor social protection
- go through mental depression
Help A Child of India has made interventions and has brought a positive change in the lives of many children with special needs. Good Education and Vocational Training is given to the children to empower them to have a better future. The need is huge in this area.
You can join hands with us in our current project through which we are raising funds especially for the children with special needs.One can donate by buying a Donate card for Rs 100. One can buy as many donate cards as they wish. It gives us great joy to put a smile on the faces of Special Children. The deadline for this project will be the 10th of June 2011. Let us partner together in this venture. A soft copy of our latest project is added below.
