Mission/Vision
To empower disabled citizens by establishing a rehabilitation and development centre for the region with the ultimate goal of integrating disabled individuals into mainstream society
 
Background
Mr.S.Ramakrishnan established Amar Seva Sangam in 1981, the International year for differently abled, to help the disabled and poor children. When he was studying in an engineering college in Coimbatore, he became a paraplegic due to a mishap when he was 21 years old. During the physical fitness tests for recruitment to Naval Officers post he fell down and broke his spine. In 1992 Mr.S.Sankara Raman, a Chartered Accountant and a differently abled person, joined the institution and both are marching towards the goal of forming the “Valley for Disabled”.
 
Amar Seva Sangam is a premier organization in the field of disability management which is founded and run by wheelchair users and is totally involved developing this project as a ‘Valley for the Disabled’ where we have Amar Seva Sangam as a central resource centre with all facilities under one roof for any disability and about 800 villages with 14000+ disabled population as client base (Service Users) being catered through an innovative community participatory initiative called ‘Village Based Rehabilitation Initiatives’. Our centre has developed from scratch to about 30 acres of land now with several projects for disabled where we have about 250 disabled children and youth in-campus and more than 1000 day scholars in our Higher Secondary School, Medical Testing Unit, School for Special Children, Early Intervention Centre, IGNOU & Alagappa Study Centres and various vocational training programs. The Spinal Post Acute Care Centre and Early Intervention program are our pioneering programs which are very few in our country. The demand for our services far exceeds our existing facilities but we are able to manage with fast turnaround of patients and strong village based and Home based follow-ups post discharge. We are trying our best to be the high quality service provider even though we are providing services free for the disabled. We look at them as ‘Service Users’ and not as ‘beneficiaries’ and our aim is to empower the disabled. We have presence in Face Book and Twitter where all our daily activities are tweeted and Face Book uploaded with important events. You can watch our video in the YouTube link -http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fCajWROQp_M, and our web site (www.amarseva.org) will give you a comprehensive account of our activities including our Annual Report, Audited Financials, etc.

 Educate a poor child
Having lost her father at a very young age, 6 year old Mala belonged to a single parent family, with her mother rolling beedis in order to eke a living, and without enough resources to provide her child with good quality education. Mala was then joined at Amar Seva Sangam by her mother when she was in Grade 1. Mala is now in Class 5 and has made her mom proud by working hard and getting good marks. She usually stands first in the class, and has a lot of dreams that she aims to achieve. Amar Seva Sangam wishes all the success and happiness in her future endeavors.
 
 Help a bud to blossom
Little Balasatheesh comes from a very poor family. His father repairs cycles to eke a living and the income he earns is not enough to support the family, specially since the mother suffers from a chronic disease. Unable to provide for his children, he approached Amar Seva Sangam for help. Amar Seva Sangam found a donor to support the child, who is now able to attend school regularly. Balasatheesh is now in UKG, and loves going to school everyday. He loves learning and reciting rhymes and is a delight to be around. His parents are extremely happy with his progress.
 
 Successful Achievement
Ayishal Beevi lost the use of both her legs when she got affected by Polio as a child. Unable to walk, she could move only by crawling, and required constant parental support. Being the sole bread winner of the family, her laborer father could hardly afford to provide her with the resources she needed. With no other option, they approached Amar Seva Sangam for help, where they were screened and selected by the Rehabilitation Team. At Amar Seva Sangam, Ayishal was given regular physiotherapy. Calipers and crutches were given to her as per the dimension recommended by the therapist. She practiced walking for the first time with the help of calipers and crutches as directed by the therapists. Now Ayishal has completed her graduation in B.com, and post graduation in MBA from a regular college and she is doing her M.Com in Distance Education. She is now so so confident, that she is able to travel independently by bus or train to anywhere she wants. She now wants to pursue her dreams by completing M.Phil and Ph.D.
