Helpers of the Handicapped, Kolhapur was established for the rehabilitation of people with disabilities. The organisation has provided assistance to more than 18,000 persons with disabilities through their schools, and rehabilitation and training centres.

Some of their activities are as follows:

  • Rehabilitation Services: The rehabilitation process begins with medical aid, including surgeries and continues through to providing aids and appliances, as well as schooling, vocational training, employment opportunities and even arranging marriages. Individuals who suffer from infections or depression due to disability are admitted to hostels for short periods of time and provided with comprehensive services. These services are aimed at equipping disabled individuals with the skills to help them lead their lives independently.
  • Educational Rehabilitation: Students are provided with free lodging, boarding, transportation, school, college fees, books and stationery. Special coaching is also given to disabled individuals after school hours by experienced teachers, who include English classes in the curriculum.
  • Sports, Culture, and Personality Development: Children are provided with outdoor sports kits for cricket, throw ball, badminton, carom, chess, and table tennis. They are enabled to participate in sports tournaments and competitions. The organisation brings noted personalities from the fields of education, culture, and literature to deliver lectures and conduct workshops for the personality development of students.
  • Vocational Training: Girls are given vocational training in cooking, tailoring, and embroidery while boys are given cashew processing and hostel training. They have a vocational training centre in Kolhapur where physically challenged men also make tricycles, crutches, portable commodes, and furniture.
