Efforts to change awareness of people with disabilities
Efforts are also being made to change the attitudes of the general public toward persons with disabilities, as well as implementing various schemes for the welfare of persons with disabilities through ETC centres. Various games and events are organized taking into account the interests of children. As part of this, efforts were made to raise public awareness of disability through activities such as puppet shows in celebration of World Disabled Persons Day throughout December.

This led to visits to public and private schools in the NMMC region to educate about disability through puppet shows. Through this, children get information about different types of disabilities, aiming to create a sense of cooperation in children’s minds towards friends with disabilities and other disabled people in society, this activity I have found it to be successful. We are seeing an enthusiastic response by students from all schools.
