Community Based Rehabilitation

Rehabilitation of people with disabilities is one of our major interventions since 2002. We have been working with around 5800 PWDs Persons with Disabilities in the district and built their capacity to address their basic rehabilitation and developmental needs by organizing PWDs into DPOs Disabled Persons' Organizations at village, Taluk and state level. The village and taluk level DPOs are the base organizations to build solidarity among the differently abled and implement various community based rehabilitation activities and development interventions along with the project team and in collaboration with government departments. The state level DPO is an apex body of all taluk level DPOs to take up higher levels of advocacy and to bring policy changes as well as effective implementations of the government schemes. The DPOs are functioning independently with their own source of fundings and administrative capacity. They also gained recognition from various governmental institutions.

Success Story

One surgery that changed my life

"I am Anjana. I was born with club foots. It was very difficult for me to go to school by walking. Being a member of a poor family there were no other options. Taunting of other children made me always unhappy and due to that I stopped going to school after the 8th standard.
Then one of the animators of VOSARD directed me to a medical camp conducted by them. The doctor advised me to go for surgery. VOSARD made all arrangements for my surgery and therapy.
After surgery I could walk like a normal girl. Again I was supported to join the school and now I am in 10th Standard. Thanks to VOSARD for helping me to lead a normal life."
