Construction of Agriculture Based Vocational Training-cum-Rehabilitation Centre at Damapada, Cuttack, India

Jewels International (Chetana Institute for the Mentally Handicapped) has established an Agriculture Based Vocational Training-cum-Rehabilitation Centre for Adults with Intellectual Disability on 4 Hectares of land. This Centre is fast of its kind in the State of Orissa, India. The Centre proposes to provide Vocational Training and Rehabilitation in Agriculture to 125 Adults with Intellectual Disability.

 

The rationale for establishing this Centre is that, 60 percent of the population of India is engaged in Agriculture and most of them live in the rural area. As per the Census 2001, 72 percent of the population of India lives in the rural area. Keeping in the above information in view, it has been decided to establish an Agriculture Based Rehabilitation Centre where Young Adolescents and Adults with Intellectual Disability will be given training in Agricultural Activities. After training, most of them will go back to their village and help the family members in Agricultural Work.

At present, the Centre has started functioning at Damapada in a rented house with 5 Adults and 2 Staff Members. Jewels International is constructing a small building with 2,000 square feet plinth area on its own land for accommodation of the Centre. The organization does not have enough money to complete construction of necessary building and also development of the land.

There is a need to construct 10,000 square feet building, development of the land and irrigation facility. For this purpose, the organization needs 8 million Indian rupees (1,23,076 Euro) for completion of 10,000 square feet building, 5 million Indian rupees (76,923 Euro) for land development with irrigation facility.

The organization solicits partners from India and abroad to complete the construction work of the Agriculture Based Rehabilitation Centre. Any amount of donation is welcome. The organization also welcomes construction of a Hostel Block for 25 persons in the memory of a family member of the donor. The building will be named after the family member of the donor in a Special Ceremony. The cost of the Hostel Block shall be about 1.6 million Indian rupees (24,615 Euro).

Looking forward to partnership for best quality Education and Rehabilitation to persons with Intellectual Disability.
