Impact of Mangaldeep
We have not only brought hope and dignity into the lives of atleast 50 families, but more importantly we have changed paradigms in Kumaon.
Even illiterate villagers are becoming aware of this institution which can help them in bringing up their mentally retarded children. Villagers now do not look down at such families.
People have become more sensitized.
Schools who teach the more typical children have come forward to offer a helping hand. Shop keepers in the town offer to stock and sell the handicrafts made by these Mangaldeep kids.
Yes, there has been a paradigm shift in the community – an irreversible change for the better.
