OUR INITIATIVES

Residential Facility

We operate a residential facility that provides a safe and loving home for children and young adults with Down syndrome, ensuring they receive the holistic care and support they need.

To sustain and enhance our mission, we seek support for the running costs of these vital programs, ensuring a nurturing environment for those in our care.

Early Medical Intervention

Is a key aspect of our approach.  In pursuit of this goal, we initiated a medical intervention program in collaboration with Narayana Hospital in India. This program sponsors children with Down syndrome who are born with heart defects, ensuring they have access to corrective heart surgeries. The program has already benefited more than 60 children along with their families, achieving a success rate of around 80%. We currently have more children eagerly waiting to benefit from this life-changing opportunity.

To continue this impactful work, we humbly seek support to sustain and expand our medical intervention program, providing hope and healing to even more children in need.

Education Programs

We are actively involved in educational programs aimed at raising awareness about Down syndrome and fostering an inclusive society that embraces diversity.

To further enrich these educational endeavors and reach a broader audience, we seek support to sustain and expand our educational programs, creating a more informed and inclusive community for individuals with Down syndrome.

You can also empower a person with Down syndrome by providing an educational scholarship, opening doors to learning and fostering a promising future.

To further enrich these educational endeavors and reach a broader audience, we seek support to sustain and expand our educational programs, creating a more informed and inclusive community for individuals with Down syndrome.

Skills Development

We are committed to empowering individuals with Down syndrome by providing them with opportunities for skill development, promoting independence and self-sufficiency. Specifically, we have vocational units including a bakery, poultry & fish farms, leather works, hair/barbing salon, tailoring and a music unit.

To sustain and expand these initiatives, fostering a more inclusive and self-reliant community, we earnestly seek support for the ongoing operational costs and growth of our Skills Development programs.

Advocacy

We are passionate advocates for the rights and well-being of persons with Down syndrome and other intellectual disabilities. Our advocacy efforts extend to challenging societal norms and promoting policies that foster inclusivity and equal opportunities.

To strengthen our advocacy initiatives and continue championing positive change, we humbly seek support to amplify our voice and impact, making a lasting difference in the lives of those we advocate for.
