In last two months we have
been able to conduct and complete awareness activities at school level
and community level in one of the targeted area. I am sending you a
presentation giving you glimpses of few of the activities.
In the coming two weeks there
will be orientation and training program for the surveyors & community
leaders and the first phase of survey will start in area I from 10 December
2009. Before that pamphlets and handouts on mental retardation will
be distributed in area I.
As a result of awareness drive
in this area people have already started contacting us with mentally
disabled kids. Case histories are being prepared for such kids and counseling
and guidance sessions besides assessment of the kids are going on.
