Renovated buses for medical care and education
August 3, 2017
Charaibeti, a project of the Indian “Tomorrow’s Foundation”, won France’s national Human Rights Prize in December 2016 for its work with disabled children.
The project consists of three mobile units which bring physiotherapy, care and special education into the heart of the Indian slums. It started in 2010 with just a few children, and today, 502 children and young adults benefit from the project. Social welfare assistance is also provided.
Although cerebral palsy and mental disability are the predominant conditions of most of the children benefitting from the Charaibeti Project, some of the other children with physical disabilities such as visual or hearing impairment are given special education classes.
Charaibeti’s goal is to promote inclusive development so that young people and children with disabilities receive equal access to education and healthcare.
