The work involves a) Strengthening rehabilitation services for persons within the community by helping the parents in accessing medical support, disability certificate, and other schemes for their child; b) Building capacities of children with disabilities so as to help them access pre-school services such as anganwadis or inclusive education in schools in their respective neighbourhoods; c) Facilitating focus groups comprising of women and young adults with disabilities, with the aim to enhance their life skills required for employment & to advocate for their rights, as well as of their children, with concerned government departments; and d) Sensitizing teachers and enabling them to understand the needs of children with disabilities in their class.
  • Information Resources: One of the ongoing activities has been regular collection and dissemination of information through trainings, workshops and through its National Disability Helpline: ABILINE, that provides counselling & information through calls, emails, walk-ins and by post.

In 2013-14, Aarth-Astha reached out to around 500 parents, siblings, and persons with disabilities through various trainings on disabilities. Aarth-Astha has built alliances with several organizations, network of Rights based campaigns, and National level forums to advocate for rights of children with disabilities in education, food, and healthcare.
