Education and Rehabilitation of leprosy parentage children
The children of leprosy parentage had been staying with their parents in different leprosy colonies all over India. The parents survive on begging and are not in a position to bring up, educate their children. They all suffer from social stigma attached to leprosy. Arjun is one among the 34 children who joined Raphael in the year 1999 at the age of 4½ years.
These children are admitted in Raphael where they are provided hostel facilities. The children are admitted in local schools in town and after 12th class, are sent for professional /technical training courses. Arjun is studying in a local school in Dehradun. He is intelligent and has been doing well in academics. He was provided with tuition facility in mathematics, English and computer science.
These children are helped to get placed in a job after their courses. They are thus able to stand on their own feet, to wash off the social stigma attached with leprosy from their minds. Arjun was awarded a Rolling Trophy for being the best in academics in his school in 2009. He has now appeared in 10th class Board examination.
