Svastya Overview

2.21% of India’s population are disabled, accounting for 2.68 crore individuals which include 20.42 lakhs children aged 0-6 years and 69% of them live in rural areas. Only 2% of these People with Disabilities have access to need based rehabilitation services.

Svastya aims to bridge the gap with its presence to provide services to all individuals, even to the most rural areas of our country. Our approach is based on the guiding principle of Who’s community based rehabilitation and international classification of functioning. We are also aligned with the UNCRPD act and SDGs.

Svastya interventions drive impact across all 5 Components of Community Based Rehabilitation

. Health, Education, Livelihood, Empowerment and Social .

Early Intervention (0 to 8 years) that promotes the child's age-appropriate growth and development and supports families during the critical early years.

Inclusive & Rehabilitation Program (8 to 18 years) supports Children with disabilities and their caregivers with various therapy, modify their innate behavior, achieve functional literacy skills ,pre vocational skills and enable them to step in adulthood with maximum functional capacity with self confidence and dignity.
