Surgical correction of CWSN
Doctors suggested that the problems faced by the CWSN can be minimized by some surgical measures. But acute poverty of their parents makes them helplessness in this regard. This issue led them to an emotional crisis. If financial assistance is rendered to those who need corrective surgery, their challenges may be addressed to some extent and they will be active in their learning activities. The most suitable children were selected at BRC level. Bills and vouchers were collected and settled after the surgery.
Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan launched this novel Project for the Children With Special Needs. It aimed to lead these children to the wider world of reading and so this project was named Koottukoodaan Pusthakachangaathi (Books my companion).
