Many years ago this organization started in a single room with only 3 children. No funding, no support but a will to change the futures of a few at least.
As the years passed, the work started to expand. More people started taking notice and the organization started to gain recognition. Then one day, one of the parent of the mentally challenged child question the benefits of educating them. The concern was true but what was more daunting was the reality of the next step. Skill development. Thus the birth of Trash to Cash skill development program. Through this program we just didn't teach them real world skills but also recycle waste & discarded materials to protect the environment. Through this initiative we had the opportunity to work with the government and the corporate sector.
In the recent years, we took to exploration again. Exploring the digital retail business. It is quite fascinating to see this new direction emerge. People all over the world are quite taken by it and are adopting faster than you can think. Why should we be left behind?
So here we are today, under the Avacayam banner we are spear heading the digital domain.
Driven by our conviction that there is a way to create a world of equal opportunities for people with disabilities, the Society for Child Development (SfCD) was set-up as a non-profit organization in 1992 with innovative programs and initiatives that address the needs of children with disabilities and their families, young adults and adults with disabilities.
By tackling the 3 main moments of a humans life, we have created a platform where people with disabilities of all ages can work towards a better future.
