Sunkisd Plant Nursery
At the plant nursery, the disabled are trained to propagate plants, care for the saplings, put them in various containers and make them ready for sale. This vocation being environmental and requiring no academic qualification is a source of relief for all those physically challenged persons who struggle to fit themselves into a world full of competition.
Started in 2006, this unit promotes the recycling and reuse of material and the usage of eco-friendly items. We reuse newspaper and cloth by making bags, mats, baskets, key chains and other items to generate employment and create awareness of environmental issues.
The primary aim in our education program is ‘educating’ the abled and disabled about each other. Formal education in institutions is available for the disabled, but unfortunately many people do not avail of this opportunity. Even in big cities, parents shy away from the hassle and bureaucratic hurdles of educating their disabled children. Educating the disabled, the parents of the disabled, and society to make education easily accessible is a task Nirmalya has taken upon itself.
We have watched many paraplegics. It wrenches one’s heart to see intelligent human beings moving around with so less dignity. Because many of them are unaware or unable to change. Dignity will encourage them to stand up and prove themselves.
How you can help
No matter what line of work we choose, integration of the physically challenged into the mainstream is absolutely essential – because we live in the same world! We need to change paths, create awareness and give every disabled person a chance to become a productive member of society. This will be accomplished by coordinated efforts of the Nirmalya trust through programs to: ¥ Provide information and opportunities for health promotion, recreation, employment, sports, counseling services for disabled individuals as well as care givers Cooperate with and seek the support of other groups and individuals that share Nirmalya’s objectives. Establish centers to undertake vocational training and create on-the-job training opportunities.
