Our emphasis is particularly on bringing children with disabilities who are still in their early age into the mainstream. In the centers located in Chhattisgarh, Odisha and Jharkhand we have been able to bring 4900 such children to the mainstream with the help of medical and rehabilitation services at Asha The Hope Centers. Asha Hope Center is the ray of hope for these children.
State-of-the-art facilities have been provided at the Asha The Hope Center, including many impressive services like Physiotherapy, Occupational Therapy, Sensory Integration Therapy, Disabled Education System, Audiometer speech therapy. Through these mediums, rehabilitation and empowerment of children according to different needs is done so that they can develop vocational skills, so that they can lead self-reliant and self-respecting lives. These centers also provide artificial limbs, other ancillary equipment to specially abled children and individuals. Even during, the JSPL Foundation trained these children online to ensure positivity in their lives. Skill development training, music and dance classes, sports activities and community-based rehabilitation assistance programmes are also organized for the empowerment of the disabled.
