Community Based Rehabilitation Programme

img

The SRSC has placed great importance upon this programme, and one of its main aim is to go to those who cannot come to the Centre. This program was implemented and free clinics were held in the more remote villages as well. The program had taken its shape with the funding of Action Aid India at the initial stage in 1998. We continued to take up the programme inspite of many hardships because we felt that this is the service where the community can help thus minimising the cost of services. As there is no other organisation or institution in Mizoram, we cover the whole State of Mizoram under our CBR Programme. We have 500 identified and assessed case at hand in 50 villages.

 

Publication

When 'Genesis' magazine was first began in 1989, only 100 copies were printed but now more than 1600 people received information about the disabled every month. It is the one and only magazine for the disabled in Mizoram till now.

It is through this magazine that many children joined our hostel to attend the school or vocational training centre. Funding under the Rajiv Gandhi Foundation 10 different booklets on various subjects on disability was published and it remains the only source of information we can have in book form in Mizoram. After the first edition, the second printing of which was sponsored by UNICEF, we  have been able to reach those in far away places who cannot come to our Center. We have a film about disability called 'Go Tell it to the Mountains' with the funding from Rajiv Gandhi Foundation.

Starting from 1989, it has now reached its 25th Anniversary. This humble magazine costed Rs. 5 per copy from the beginning till April, 2014 but with complete reluctance we have to raise the price to Rs. 10 from May so that we can meet the printing charges.

The annual subscription rate is Rs. 120 both by hand or post.
