Project on Disability Service and its progress reports

SIVA Trust has been serving the persons with disability in the two blocks of Manur and Melaneelithanallur in Tirunelveli District by mobilizing funds through Global Giving , USA.The progress reports submitted in each quarter are given below :

5th September ,2018

The gratious support of donors to our project, by way of USD 2575 through Global Giving and INR 2,12,000 through Impact Guru were credited to our account in the last week of July and August respectively.
In the meantime, our two staff dedicated for this work continued intensive survey in the block where we work. They also got in touch with the District Differently Abled Rehabilitation Officer (DDRO) and came to know about the various Government schemes available to help the Persons with Disabilities (PwD). With that knowledge in the background, they took 8 PwD from the area (who do not have disability identity cards) to the DDRO office as well as to the medical team for checking up their percentage of disability.
When a private employment camp was organised in Tirunelveli exclusively for the PwD on July 29, 4 eligible candidates were taken to the camp and they were interviewed by prospective employers, but none could fulfill the job requirements. Two persons were helped in applying for monthly pension from the Government. Three PwD, having skill in tailoring and from a very poor family background were helped to apply for free tailoring machine from the Government.
One more staff was added on 1st September to work for the PwD living in the near Manur block. She is collecting data on the PwD in the block and also in assessing their individual requirement. The DDRO is also encouraging the organisation to come up with the details of help needed by PwD in as many blocks as possible.

She has identified and helped 96 persons with disability (PwD) in 11 villages and attending to their requirements. The District Differently-abled Rehabilitation Officer, Tirunelveli district is also encouraging the organisation to come up with the details of help needed by PwD in as many blocks as possible.

She also applied on behalf of 11 PwD, for getting concessional fare in bus and train travel and got the permission for a physically challenged man of 52 years of age.

The Trust considered the request of a 17 years old local student of 11th standard, having low vision and helped him in procuring a suitable specs for him to continue his studies effectively. Another worth mentioning work done by the Trust was to help 27 years old youth of Devarkulam village with financial assistance of Rs.20,000 to re-start his small village shop. The youth has 3 sisters and one younger brother, who were all married and settled elsewhere. They were all originally living in Bombay, but after the death of his father 15 years back, the family shifted to their native village and started living in a Government-provided small group house. The youth is crippled in both legs and he can only crawl. With someone’s help, he opened a small shop in the village 7 years back for the family’s sustenance, but it had to be closed after some months. His mother started working as a help in a roadside hotel on a wage of $3 per day, from which she has to spend $1 for her to and fro bus trip. The youth was identified by the Trust staff to be an enthusiastic youth and the Trust decided to help him with financial assistance of $300 to re-start his small shop. It was formally inaugurated on December 3rd ,the International Day of Disabled, after getting assurance from the villagers to help the youth come out of his poverty.
