VISHWAS- Vision for Health Welfare and Special Needs
Our mission is to promote the rights and interests of the disadvantaged, particularly those with disabilities. VISHWAS is working in the field of Disability and Inclusive Development in Gurugram.
Work and Achievements
VISHWAS is committed to working towards promoting accessible, enabling and inclusive environments. We develop and promote inclusive models in education, skill development and community outreach in partnership with the government, Institutions, communities, corporate sector, parents and children. VISHWAS caters to all marginalized and disadvantaged groups, especially on the inclusion of persons with disabilities and those marginalized by poverty.
VISHWAS is working for the age appropriate inclusion of children and adults with disabilities through its four programmes: VISHWAS Vidyalaya, VISHWAS Community Based Programme, VISHWAS Skill Development and Training Programme and VISHWAS Research and Training Programme.
VISHWAS Vidyalaya is a recognized inclusive elementary school with nearly 300 students, studying from Nursery to VIII. Most of our students are first generation learners, coming from migrant communities, marginalised by poverty and with little or no prior exposure to formal education. More than 18 percent of the students are children with developmental disabilities which include Cerebral Palsy, Intellectual Disabilities, Autism Spectrum Disorders and Multiple Disabilities.
Similarly, VISHWAS Skill Development works with young adults and adults with disabilities by developing their skill sets for life skills and livelihood opportunities to enable them for independent living.
VISHWAS Community Based Programme works with community for awareness and sensitisation towards Disability and Inclusive Development. Through this programme we are associated with more than 2000 children and adults with disabilities in different locations of Haryana.
VISHWAS Research and Training Programme aims to improve the quality of services related to Disability and Inclusive Development. Through this programme we are building capacities of professionals working in this sector. VISHWAS is also a recognised Disability Resource Centre, under which we address the needs of children and adults with disabilities from the neighbouring community.
