Over the last few weeks the construction has been developing rapidly, our new purpose built rehabilitation centre is now completed providing the perfect setting for our rehab patients. It will provide a unique and life transforming service for the public of Cantonment Board Sagar, The services we provide includes training the Mentally Retarded Children (Mild and Moderate at Centre and referrals services for the all categories.) We train the mentally retarded to take care of himself/ herself without bothering his family members who have to generate income for him also. Thus, we train him/her to dress by himself, to take bath, to wash the dishes, to eat without any support, to wash his/her own clothes and to manage his daily life. They will be trained for practical living according to their abilities. The training may involve learning the alphabet, recognizing colours, distinguishing different currencies, simple calculations etc. In second and third Phases the mentally retarded children are also taken to regular schools and taught in a special classroom. Thus the Mentaly Retarded children who were once isolated gets love and acceptance from normal children of his/her own age group. The event was a huge success.
Finally we provided tea for all the guests.

Rehabilitation is the process and attempt to provide all sort of support to those who are deprived of something which are essential to live respectfully and with equal rights as all human beings. Rehabilitation is vast and extensive approach; different types of rehabilitation are adopted as per requirement and demand. Here cantonment board Sagar is taking small initiative with long-term goals in its preview to help the deprived children in society, initially starting with social rehabilitation of mild mentally retarded children, and achieving the complete school of education for the children with different disabilities.
Here it is important to understand the meaning of social rehabilitation in context of this centre for social rehabilitation, as a part of this referential document and manual for future references, to know the functioning and aims of this institution.
On the basis of general experience about the use of language we can mention at least three meanings of "social rehabilitation". These are
1) The improving of the context of social activities.
2) The social aspect of any kind of rehabilitation, and
3) Specific social rehabilitation.
The most general justification of social rehabilitation are the universal human rights and the equalization of opportunities. Human rights highlight equality and nondiscrimination. Accessibility is an interpretation of nondiscrimination. An accessible environment makes social functioning or social activities possible. The relevance of the environment can be seen everywhere. It is an issue of doors, thresholds, stairs, housing, transportation, communications, social networks, attitudes etc. Assistive technology is sometimes a precondition for social functioning. In these cases, an accessible environment is a necessary condition for social activities. Improving these conditions should be the objective of social rehabilitation and it is a part of rehabilitation that these circumstances are made suitable for a person as far as possible. In this general perspective we are interested in the conditions of social functioning ability, or the capacity of social activities. An issue which makes it difficult to understand social rehabilitation is that in almost all rehabilitation there is a social aspect. It is usual that family and community are involved. The aim of all rehabilitation is to find ways for people to participate in the community and in social life, for example, at home or in working life. In this sense educational, medical and vocational rehabilitation all have social aspects: it is important to take the social aspect in rehabilitation into account.
Then there are specific methods. Social functioning ability, or the capacity of social activities, is something distinct from the environment. For the rehabilitation process it is not always sufficient that the environment is accessible, friendly, etc. Specific methods are needed to help to develop social functioning or social activities. Human rights, equalization of opportunities, and accessibility enable and support social activities. It is a natural part of social rehabilitation to promote and negotiate about accessibility, to promote social networks, and to coordinate services. In this perspective we could have two meanings for social rehabilitation: social rehabilitation as the improvement of the conditions of social activities, and specific social rehabilitation as the process of enriching a person's capacity of social activities.
A Society with equal opportunities for all.
Promotes and protects the human rights of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and actively supports their full inclusion and participation in the community throughout their lifetimes. Dedicated team with high ethos will be our tools and devotion towards socialization will be our technique. To facilitate empowerment of the Persons with disability, their families and support service. To widen scope of service delivery in the field of social rehabilitation.
