Background

Background

Project‘Inder’ is our largest project encompassing a range of activities. It grew from the intent of our Founder, Mr Amandeep Singh, to work for children with special needs and disabilities to commemorate the life of his late brother Inderjeet Singh who suffered from Congenital Cerebral Palsy. The project focuses on the overall development of children with special needs and other less fortunate children. Cognizant of the impacts of a disability, Project ‘Inder’ assumes total responsibility of all children that are inducted. The children are sheltered and treated (those requiring treatment) at the Rehabilitation Center in Tughlakabad. We also run a special school for children in the premises of the center. 

Rehabilitation Center 
The Rehabilitation Center in Tughlakabad provides free services to over 60 underprivileged and differently-abled children from the vicinity. The rehabilitation center provides NDT or Neuro Developmental Treatment, an advanced therapeutic approach practiced by experienced Physical Therapists, and Speech-Language Pathologists. This hands-on approach is used in working with people who have central nervous system insults, which create difficulties in controlling movement. The therapists employed at National Rehab Center treat children with motor disorders like Cerebral Palsy, head injury, Down’s Syndrome, Rett’s syndrome etc., so that they can lead a better life independent of any external assistance. The center is run by nearly 20 staff members comprising of medical professionals (General Physician, Physiotherapist, and Speech Therapist etc.), psychologists, special educators and social workers among others. Besides these children, normal patients who come to seek free medical consultation from our in-house doctors also frequent the center. Very often some patients with acute medical conditions also turn up at the center seeking help. In such situations, these cases are transferred to Project ‘Cure India’ where we shoulder the responsibility of financing full medical treatment of these patients. Over the last three years the Rehabilitation Center has referred over 47 cases.

School

School

We run a special school for the differently abled children who live in the Rehabilitation Center in Tughlakabad. The purpose of this school is to ensure that their disability does not rob them of a sound education. At present the school functions more like a kindergarten school owing to a significant number of children aged 4-6 who attend the school. In coming years with the progress of the currently enrolled children and with more enrollments from other students, the school shall be expanded to accommodate senior classes and other curricular requirements.
