Our Activities

  1. The  resident girls find singing together as a choir  very enjoyable and relaxing. The choir group meets every Saturday when they learn and sing in Kannada, Tamil, Hindi,and English. They are a star attraction in  all our social events.

     The choir is greatly appreciated by visitors to the home and they are invited to sing carols during the winter festive season at Oberoi Hotel and in other places.

     The residents under the guidance of Ms.Diana Tholoor put up an excellent cultural show at the Golden Jubilee Celebrations held on 5th September 2010 in the presence of  the Governor of Karnataka and his first lady. The songs ________________ reached out the audience and touched their hearts. They received a standing ovation from the audience and the Governor personally congratulated the residents who participated.

     

     

  2. THE COMPUTER CENTRE started in 1998 with some PCs donated by IBM. lt gives an opportunity to the younger school going girls to play and learn while it is also used by the senior school and college students for their studies.

    The centre has been upgraded to IT  training centre with new computers from Dell and a full time trainer from CLRC imparts training to candidates with disabilities  who register with CLRC for job opportunities in the IT/ BPO/ Telecom sectors.This is part of the outreach project under CLRC.

  3. As part of the occupational  theraphy measures the Needle Work Centre imparts training in embroidery, stiching, cutting, dress making and other skills under the guidance of volunteers. This enables the children and ladies in the Home and outlet to gainfully use their time as well as gain self confidence.  

    The various items produced from these activities is available at the Craft Training Centre. For deatils of the products  please click here.

  4. The Crafts Shop  is  another activity under the occupational theraphy measures. It enables the residents to gain skills in salesmenship and interact with the public. This experience enables them to become part of society. 

    The items produced in the Needle Work Centre are on display at the Crafts Shop which is manned by the residents. They  are available for  sale to the public.

  5. The Thrift Shop  is another measure of the occupational theraphy programme. Articles received from donors are segregated  categorywise and qualitywise by the residents. This activity enables the residents to gain visual and  motor skills and the art of differenation.  The articles that are required by the residents are kept aside. The surplus items are given to other NGOs depending upon their needs. The balance items are made available to the  people from the economically weaker section of the society  at nominal prices at the Thrift Shop.

    The residents run the shop and  it enables them to interact with this segment of  society.

  6. The WORKSHOP  is another occupational theraphy measure  that enables persons with disabilities to rehabilitate themselves in to the society. At the workshop job work like assembly of componets,  sorting and packaging  items, candle making, formulating house hold consumables like phenyle and soap oil and similar such activities are undertaken. 

    The WORKSHOP is  an outreach programme which enables persons with disabilities who are resident near to the Home to work and earn their livelihood.

  7. Apart from the training and skills development programmes  imparted to the residents through  the occupational theraphy measures there is a crying need to reach out and engage the larger population of persons with disabilties in and around Bangalore in training,  skill development and job placement. A project to undertake this activity was intiated as Cheshire Livelihood Resource Centre (CLRC) with  the funding & technical support  from M/s Accenture, LCD-UK and  its South Asia Regional Office.
