CARENIDHI (Centre for Applied Research and Education on Neurodevelopmental Impairments and Disability-related Health Initiatives) is a registered, non-profit organization (exempted u/s 80 G of the Income Tax Act, 1961) devoted to the promotion of education and applied research in the field of neurodevelopmental disabilities in children. The organization was initiated in 1997.
We are people from different walks of life, come together to work for the diffusion of useful knowledge about developmental disabilities. Ensuring that people who live and work with disabled persons have the know-how, CARENIDHI attempts to bridge the gap between research and practice, knowledge and application.
With a vision to integrate disability-related health initiatives into “community development”, CARENIDHI calls for the combined efforts of people with different disabilities, their families, health and rehabilitation professionals, organizations involved in the care of disabled children, and supportive services in the education, social and health sectors.
The mission of the organization is to play a promotional role in the Community-based Rehabilitation (CBR) of children with different disabilities in India by empowering the community with the necessary knowledge and skills required for their optimal care. Our mission also is to foster education and research in the field of disability, thereby providing a platform for learning and improving the quality of life for children with different abilities.
Reaching out to large numbers through training and educational programmes as well as policy relevant health research essential for further advancement of work in this area is a high priority.More details
