This NGO in Kerala is helping disabled children realize their potential
Dream of Us is an NGO based in Kozhikode in Kerala. The NGO works specifically for the welfare of children with disabilities.
The NGO aims to help disabled children find a place for themselves in mainstream society.
One of the ways it does this is by showcasing their talents in art.
In December 2017, 22 artists from this NGO displayed their work at a seven-day exhibition in the city. All the paintings were sold out. The exhibition was a big success.
Dream of Us also provides training in communication to children who are deaf and hard of hearing.
Another major aspect of their work is educating parents’ about the needs of disabled children.
Next on the agenda is a nature camp for hearing and speech impaired children at the end of March.
The camp will be held at Guruvayurappan College in Kozhikode.
The camp aims to promote inclusion as well as awareness about the environment among the children.
