Initiative for Persons with Disability
CID has been working with Persons with Disability (SPECIALLY-ABLE PEOPLE) from last 5 years, we have been working with Sahariya tribe in special and people in general. After a long intervention, CID found that Sahariya population is more vulnerable from this issue due to detachment from general population and migration. Due to this detachment, this tribal population could not gain benefit of governmental scheme and policy which is essential to make livelihood better. Especially people with disability and their families are more in trouble due to lack of information to sustain livelihood and carry the facilities provided by the govt. Therefore CID initiated the community based rehabilitation program especially for Sahariya disable people. This approaches changed many lives and come up with good results.
