How Flowers From The Trash Can Are Replacing ‘Mental Disability’ With ‘Financial Independence’ and ‘Dignity’!

It’s been some time since we consciously sensitized ourselves by replacing the word ‘disability’ with ‘differently abled’ and ‘challenged’. Now, here we have someone who has dared to replace ‘mental disability’ with ‘employability’ – Madhumita Puri, Founder of Society for Child Development. It’s indeed an endeavour that has hearteningly pushed the boundaries of limitation to claim new territories.

DCCW: A Cradle of Hope for Abandoned, Physically or Mentally Challenged Children

Delhi Council for Child Welfare is a Non-Governmental Organization established in 1952. The Council first started its work among children who had been displaced, lost or abandoned in the riots surrounding the Partition of India, providing them care.

These Refugee Women From Myanmar Are Now Crime-Fighters In Delhi!

It is not without reason that Delhi is called the rape capital of the country. It reports the highest incidents of violence and sexual assaults against women. In addition to that, it hosts a large population of refugees and immigrants from neighbouring countries, who flee persecution in their own nations and hope to build a better life here. Unfortunately, many times they become even easier targets for abuse. In this context, we present to you the laudable efforts of the Crime Against Women Cell of the Delhi Police for imparting self-defence training to refugee women.

Unnayan Learning Hub: Educating Girls, Educating Communities

A Teach for India fellow, Devanik Saha, found it difficult to leave the children he was teaching as part of the program, and also to stop teaching, once it came to an end. He also had a strong urge to do something more for the community he had come to love, especially the girls, who faced the most neglect and discrimination. Thus began Unnayan, a learning hub for these kids to come to after school and supplement their education and understanding, a dire need considering the state of most government-run schools in our nation. Here, Devanik recounts his journey so far.
