Hi-tech homes for the disabled to be built in Hyderabad
Hyderabad is soon to have hi-tech care residential homes for people with disabilities.
This plan will be the part of the State government’s project regarding the construction of a IT Park for the disabled near Rajiv Gandhi International Airport, Shamshabad.
Facilities for disabled to be provided in the residences
The residences will have facilities like reading rooms for visually-impaired, ramps for the physically-challenged and user-friendly toilets for people with disabilities.
People with vision issues will get software-assisted reading devices.
The IT park is expected to come up in a huge area of 10 acres of government land.
The construction of the disabled focused project will be done through a public-private partnership between the Telangana State and Vindhya E-Infomedia Private Limited.
Skills will be taught to people with disabilities
The park is expected to employ 2,000 persons with disabilities in the next five years.
The IT park will not only impart job training, other useful skills will also be taught to the disabled such as shopping, cooking, money management, weight management and a healthy lifestyle.
