According to World Health Organization, over 90 million Indians have a disability. In a country where even a non-disabled person get's complete (academic) training or adequate funding, the situation for people with disabilities is even worse. Their quality of life is often marked by misunderstanding and inhumanity, negligence and discrimination. The state support for the disabled is insufficient, and so it is for non-governmental organizations (NGOs) who are without financial resources, it's very difficult to establish.

For the project, Glory Foundation has rented a house outside of Bangalore, Karnataka.

Initially we had a small day care center for children and adolescents with intellectual disability, but now a residential facility has been created. Director of the facility is D. Arockiadass who has more than 30 years experiance as a social worker in this field. It is planned to set another workforce, and expand childcare provision.

The organization has set itself the goal to create a family-like environment for the young people, in which they develop skills and can expand. Our support and promotion offer is holistic and includes the following areas:

  • Communication
  • Social behavior
  • Independence
  • Culture techniques (read, write, count)
  • Financial management
  • Hygiene
  • Motor skills
  • recreational activities
  • Special talents

The aim is to allow the inhabitants to cope with the demands of their daily lives largely independent.
