Gyan-Vigyan Paryavaran Parishad has been running Residential Bridge Course in Sanhauli, Khagaria for Mentally Retarded Children. This Project is funded by Bihar Education Project, Khagaria (Implementing Agency of Sarva Siksha Abhiyan).
Fourty Children with special needs (Mentally Retarded) identified and enrolled (child list.pdf) in this centre in the month of April, 2010. Most of the Children are helpless and they don't know the basic manner of society but after a week they learned about the basic manner of society. This was a big achivement for the NGO and society too.
After a month most of the children learned to manage their daily works. They also learned Tables, Rhymes, Jokes, Story and writing skill also. In this way they are growing day to day in a progressive manner.
It was possible because the Project staff are very good. They are treated each and every child as a family members. Accomodation facility, food, playground and amusement equipment is the key source for their wonderful development.(CWSN GVP REPORT.pdf)
After six month no one can identify as a mentally retarded these children to see at once. If they make special efforts then he identify these children are mentally retarded.
But the funding amount is unsatisfactory. It is only about 833 rupees per child per month. But our NGO manages to local fund for meet the necessary expenses.
We request to you if you are a part of this society please donate us.
