Action Change (Formally GVI Trust)

Rehabilitation for Disabled Children in India

We aim to provide the teachers at a school in India with Physiotherapy equipment, PT assistant/aide training, as well as Emergency First Aid training. Children with physical disabilities can experience muscle atrophy/tightening, and loss in joint range, which can be addressed with PT.

Situation

The local School is not currently equipped or staffed to provide Physiotherapy and does not have the funding or resources to tackle this issue, so this project aims to equip the school with PT equipment, PT assistance/aide training as well as Emergency First Aid training. This will allow full capacity of rehabilitation to maximize functional control of the body or increase the gross motor function of the children.

Solution

Children with physical disabilities can experience mobility, function, posture & balance challenges & PT is critical to increasing their mobility and independence. PT empowers the children physically & emotionally & sets the stage for entering adulthood as independent individuals. Additionally, a successful PT program allows a parent to see their child using their body to the best of his or her ability, and potentially, living independently.
