An organisation committed towards providing Inclusive Education for the specially-abled.


In the year 2022-23, Sankalpa had conducted a series of sensitization programs for the multiple stakeholders of the society. The 50 panchayath development officials were oriented about early education importance, social scheme programs of government for children with special needs (CWSN), inclusive education importance, support for UDID cards for children and mobility aids, support for disabled children and creating easy access. The Asha workers of health department and Anganwadi teachers were oriented about disability issues, early identification of disabilities, nutrition benefits for children and pregnant women.

There were around 3000 people who underwent the programs. The government school elementary teachers were trained on handling the children with special needs. They were oriented on inclusive education, preparing Teaching and learning materials for the children with disabilities. 200 teachers participated in the training program at taluk level.

Sensitization Program

In steadying the course towards the accomplishment of the organization’s aims, SANKALPA organized a sensitization program, the primary focus of it being Asha, Anganwadi teachers, as well as parents of children with Developmental Disabilities as well as teachers and students from government schools.

This 6-day program was conducted at different venues such as the Government High School at Lokikere, Davangere district and Basaveshwara Samudaya, Bhavana, Hosabelavnur amongst other places.

The Action Plan involved targeting the stakeholders that have a direct nexus to the development of children with Developmental Disabilities such as Cerebral Palsy (such as teachers, parents etc.) and furnishing them with information regarding relevant and applicable government schemes that provide financial assistance and other facilities. The participants were taken through a step-by-step process on the seriousness of children afflicted with such a condition, and which government scheme may be applicable to them and how they may gain access to it. We witnessed participation from 80 parents, 150 Anganwadi workers from the Davangere Taluk, 120 Asha workers and 40 government school teachers.

Mobility Measurement Camp

SANKALPA collaborated with the Association of Persons with Disabilities (APD) to organize a Mobility Measurement Camp at various Taluks which included Harihara, Harapanahalli, Jagalur and Davangere.

The purpose of this initiative was to assess the needs of persons with Developmental Disabilities in order to provide them with mobility aids and comprehensive therapy so that they can achieve independent mobility and not face the encumbrances that they could potentially encounter during their day-to-day activities.

This assessment was conducted for approximately 258 beneficiaries, amongst which 138 of them suffered from cerebral palsy. MR kits were referred to the families of these individuals.
