Polio did not stop Vitthal from providing for his family

Vitthal is from a poor family and is the eldest of three siblings. He had to start earning from an early age to help his family make ends meet. This was harder for him than most people.

He had an acute attack of polio when he was just three years old. He soon lost function in his right leg and could not walk. He had to drag himself around for years after the illness but he was determined and would not give up.

By the age of 14, Vitthal pushed himself to walk with a lot of struggle. He completed class 10 and joined NASEOH’s Vocational Training Unit.

The unit’s social workers trained him in tailoring and gave him a sewing machine. He has set up a shop at home with this and earns around Rs. 5000 every month. The unit also gave him mobility aid that helps him move around. These contributions enable him to look after himself and his family.

You can donate and help train a differently abled person like Vitthal. You can give with confidence because every program on our platform is GIVEASSURED. A little help from you will give them a chance to earn and lead a life with respect and dignity.

Program Description

As one of its core activities, NASEOH runs a Vocational Training Center for imparting vocational training to the differently-abled. The key objective of the programme is to ensure employment for the differently-abled and providing them with economic independence. Apart from trades like Pottery, Welding, Gardening, Tailoring, Electronic assembly, Computers, and Baking, beneficiaries are also trained in Communication Skills.

Beneficiaries are first assessed by Social workers and paramedics for occupation suitability, according to which they are assigned trades. The training provided is completely free of cost, after the completion of which the trainees are given placement assistance, either in the form of external placement or self-employment. NASEOH's students have secured employment as Clerks, Telephone operators, Computer operators, Machinists, Binders, Tailors, Data Entry Operators etc.

Donations made to this program support the trainer's salary. Donate to this program and enable differently-abled people to learn a skill to be self-reliant.

About The NGO

National Society for Equal Opportunities for the Handicapped
National Society for Equal Opportunities for the Handicapped Logo
National Society for Equal Opportunities for the Handicapped

The concept of creating an umbrella organization for the differently-abled emerged as a result of a conference held in 1968 on "Rehabilitation of the Differently abled", following which a group of eminent professionals, doctors, and social workers came together to establish the National Society for Equal Opportunities for the Handicapped (NASEOH).

Though NASEOH started off with the initial purpose of creating awareness about issues concerning the differently-abled in the areas of Education, Vocational Training, and Employment, they later decided to provide direct services through capacity building for effective integration. They do this through various projects in the areas of Education, Vocational Training, Employment, Rehabilitation, and Disability prevention.

Apart from this, NASEOH also assists the differently abled by identifying and providing them with suitable mobility aids like wheelchairs, calipers, tricycles, crutches, and splints. Most of these appliances are manufactured in-house by trainees and employees in their Welding workshop in Mumbai.
