NGO Profile :
Adarsh Charitable Trust (ACT) was set with the objective of rehabilitating children with mental and physical challenges. Their mission is to extend comprehensive therapy and training programmes which are appropriate for children so as to make them independent and help them lead a dignified adult life as well.

Their activities in 2013-2014 were:

  • Adarsh Rehabilitation Centre:  The Centre has facilities for the comprehensive of children affected by Cerebal Palsy, Autism, Down Syndrome and Multiple Disabilities. During the year 218 children had undergone rehabilitation services. In FY15, two joined normal mainstream school, after successful training.  In the FY15 academic year, around 150 students were registered under Open Basic Education (OBE) programme and 130 of them attended examinations. ACT has started a vocational unit and hopes to expand its operations.
  • Child Development Evaluation Intervention and Research Centre (CDEIRC): The Centre has facilities for need based Speech therapy, Physiotherapy and Psychological evaluation. During FY15, the Centre evaluated 137 children and provided therapy and training to 63 children every month on an average.  
  • Community Based Rehabilitation (CBR) Programme: 1) ACT runs a community-based rehabilitation programme to help challenged children who cannot visit ACT for training due to various reasons. 13 special schools have been set up with the help of other NGOs or philanthropic individuals. 2) Another ongoing programme under CBR is the Risk Baby Unit which works with four major hospitals and employs a Developmental Therapist who examines new-born babies at risk of any potential disability and advises the parents of remedial measures when required. Since August 2005, 7,766 babies have been evaluated, and 766 of them in FY15. 3) ACT also runs a Home Based Rehabilitation (HBR) programme with three units. Each HBR unit has a physiotherapist, a special educator and an assistant in each team to provide the required training and therapy. The focus of the programme is to reach out to children from poor financial backgrounds and those who have never received any training or therapy due to lack of awareness. The three units help 110 children from 11 nearby panchayats. Bharat Petroleum Corporation Ltd will support the HBR programme till April 2017.
