Ekta’s Community Based Rehabilitation programme works directly with disabled people in six Gram Panchayats of Koraput block: Manabar, Mastiput, Mahadaiput, Padampur, Kendar and Devighat. It works to analysis the needs of the disabled community and to distribute resources as well as working on issues around health, education and livelihoods. The programme advocates for empowerment and self governance and also coordinates Ekta’s internal disability policy. Ekta currently employs three people with disabilities (PWDs) as staff and has ensured our own office building has accessible features.
