Ganpati Educational Society (GES) was established in 2003 to provide care to disabled children and adults, education and vocational training, healthcare, environmental protection and various community development programs in Himachal Pradesh. They primarily work for the equal rights and opportunities of people with disabilities so that they are enabled to lead an enhanced life.

Main activities are:

  • Pragati Industrial Training Center:  The objective of this center is to provide skill based and short term courses under MHRD, Government of India, to candidates living in far flung and economically backwards areas. Students are provided training on electrician trade, stitching and tailoring. They have an infrastructure of handling 50 students per session and all the required facilities are given to the students in both the concerned courses.
  • Home based Education Programs: Each special educator visits around 5 to 7 children at their homes. They are given therapy in education, social, domestic, vocational and grooming skills. Besides these home based programs the organization motivates children to become physically independent and work on their limitations. For this they conduct yoga camps and sports activities. They also organize parent-counsellor meetings to discuss the progress of the children and reduce the stress felt by parents. Ten such meetings were organized to come up with healthy solutions to problems being faced by the children. In FY16, GES admitted 6 persons with disabilities to different government schools.
  • Day Care Centre under Early Intervention Scheme: This activity, initiated in 2009, is for those CWSN’s who belong to nearby villages and can come to the educational center along with their parents as they can pay individual attention on them while doing some kind of group activity. Around 10 to 15 children (in the under 10 age group) gather every day at the day care center. Special educators are prompted to prepare their own teaching learning material. Sizes of the models are kept big for easy discrimination. Cerebral palsy patients are given special attention. Other writing material is given to the children for home exercises. All major festivals are celebrated and activities like painting, clay making, greeting cards making is encouraged.
