We started off this week with an invitation from the District Disability Rehabilitation Centre (DDRC), Palamu District for leadership in a 3 day workshop for the disabled. Our team had done quite a lot of work along with the DDRC to facilitate the disabled to organize themselves and be self-reliant.
Our partnership with the DDRC is in it's early phases. However, it was quite a honor to be recognized at the district level for work among the disabled.
The DDRO was quite kind enough to allot us a stall in the workshop. Staff from the CH department put up a good display about our work among the disabled and also about finger-millet cultivation.
Our team was enthralled when the Deputy Commissioner, Mr. Manoj Kumar visited the stall. He was quite appreciative about our work and also inquired with officers with him about looking at the option of promoting millets in the district level as well as including it under the ICDS (Integrated Child Development Services) Scheme.
All glory and praise to the Lord and kudos to the CBR team of NJH who has made quite a lot of inroads into the remote villages of Palamu for standing along with the disabled and facilitating their upliftment . . .
