Scaling Up as APD turns 60…
The year 2017-18, was a year of review, reflection and evolution, for The
Association of People with Disability (APD), to move forward and scale up.
It saw the end of the last 3-year strategy period and development of a new
strategy for 2018-2021. The detailed review made us feel proud of our
achievements in programme areas, while we observed the need to improve upon
our communications, research and use of technology. The blended approaches
of rights and programmes, lifecycle focus and community based rehabilitation
were certainly our unique areas. It also helped us recognise our potential
to serve beyond Karnataka.

Before we look at the future, please note two important points regarding the 2017-18 performance. The
“Reach” in 2017-18 shows a slight decline YOY due to a change in the definition in April 2017. Hence the
numbers are not strictly comparable. The care and service aspects in the new definition are vastly superior.
Secondly, we begin 2018-19 with an advance grant receipt of Rs 4.05 Cr compared to half that number in the
previous year, resulting in higher cash balance at the end of the year.

The new strategic plan named “WINNING TOGETHER” is geared towards a threefold increase in the reach
of Persons with Disability (PwDs) and resources from 2017-18. While programme implementation will focus
in North Karnataka region, expertise will be offered pan India through technical collaborations. The plan is
aspirational in aiming to set up a state of the art 45 bed Spinal Injury Rehabilitation center and an Institute
for Disability Rehabilitation and Research that will have national and international linkages.

APD’s upcoming Diamond Jubilee next year was a great opportunity for us to relook at our vision,
mission and values. It reiterated in everyone that the core of APD is the continuing commitment to strive for
rights, justice and equity for people with special needs. The dreams and vision of our late founder towards
inclusion of differently-abled people in all aspects of life so that their full potential is realised continue

Our well-wishers, friends, volunteers and donors stood by us. Our service recipients, partners and
Government egged us to do better. Our PwD Champions brought us pride and visibility. The Rights of
Persons with Disability Act gave us a boost to ensure ‘No one is left behind’. As I write this annual report, I
am happy to share that we were awarded the Best NGO 2018 award by Federation of Karnataka Chambers of
Commerce & Industry (FKCCI), a feather in the cap and a proud moment indeed. Thank you, everyone.

Glimpses of our work are shared in the report. Read, reflect, join us and make the world truly inclusive.
Thank you.

Early Intervention

Child receiving therapy through play activities

According to the last disability census (2011) in

India, 7.01% of children aged 0-6 years suffer from some
form of disability.

APD has been running the Early Intervention programme

for the past 3 years considering the growing needs of
children within the 0-6 years age bracket. The programme
works to identify children with developmental delays and
provide them with therapeutic support to develop age
approprate functional skills. This family centric
programme builds the capacity of parents and
caregivers to facilitate the children in performing activities of daily living through a play and learn
methodology. The support is provided at the family, community and center level based on the
Individual Family Support Plan (IFSP) for each child.

Joshua in Anganwadi ... a beautiful story …
Joshua, 6 years old, the child of Navya, a single mother from Bangalore’s Ramamurthy Nagar locality, came to
APD in November 2017. He had developmental delays in seven domains such as motor, sensory, self-help,
communication, social, play and cognition. He had no neck control, would drool and was unable to sit, even
for a few seconds.

Joshua was given early stimulation activities and assistive devices such as gaiters, ankle foot orthotics and a
standing frame to help him sit and walk. He received therapy every day and his mother was also trained on
the same. At the end of 6 months, young Joshua was able to feed himself.

With the help of stimulation and mobility aids, Joshua now makes eye contact, his drooling is under control
and he can sit without support for a few minutes. His mother is happy and has enrolled him into an
Anganwadi near his home where he plays and learns with able-bodied friends. Joshua continues to receive
therapy support at the APD center.

“ am so happy that Joshua can today go to a school and play and learn along with other children
who do not have any disabilities.” - Navya (Joshua’s Mother)

Inclusive Education
Inclusive education is a system of education wherein students with and without disability learn together
through methodologies adapted to meet the needs of both.

In 2017-18, APD has enabled the enrollment of 2168 Children with Special Needs (CwSN) into regular

APD drives inclusion by sensitizing and building the capacity of stakeholders such as parents, siblings, peers,
teachers and government officials.

Shradhanjali Integrated School (SIS)

SIS, since its establishment in 1973, maintains an 80:20 ratio of
Children with Special Needs (CwSN) and able-bodied children to
promote inclusion and develop a conducive ecosystem. During the
year 2017-18, 13 children passed out of class VII and were enrolled in
regular schools to pursue their education.

Model Schools
APD started working with regular schools in 2012 and adopted them
as “Model Schools”. The objective is to enroll more CwSN into regular
schools and provide them with therapy services, accessibility and trained
teachers to facilitate inclusive education. Presently, APD works with 35
such model schools across Bangalore, Vijayapura and Davangere districts
of Karnataka, where Deaf Education is a major focus.

BOT Schools
The Build-Operate-Transfer (BOT) model is used to develop more
schools like SIS. Currently 3 such schools are operational in
collaboration with BLDE University in Vijayapura, BVVS in Bagalkote
and Sahara NGO in Gulbarga disticts of Karnataka.

2017-18 Achievements

Confidence beats disability

Thirteen-year-old Saravana is the son of a fruit vendor from Bangalore. Though born with physical
disability which restricted his movements, he did not get discouraged. At the age of 4, he was enrolled in the
SIS preschool where his intelligence shone beyond his disability. He is currently in Standard V and shows
tremendous improvement in studies, peer interactions and extracurricular activities. He loves his school, the
trees around, the library, computer lab and sensory park. It has become an integral part of his life.

He is so self-confident that he is happy to help his friends in their studies as well. He has secured 1st rank in
the final examination.

The class teacher, Ms. Catherine, says, “I am proud of Saravana. He is very intelligent and active. He helps his
able-bodied friends to cope with their studies. I am amazed at his maturity and self-confidence”.

As per the 2011 census, 6-8% of the country’s population has some form of disability. Statistics show that the
employment rates among people with disability (PwDs) are substantially lower than the able-bodied due to
lack of social inclusion, access to training, reservation of jobs and actual recruitment to the reserved positions.

Presently, there are many skilled and semi-skilled jobs that can be performed by PwDs. But there is a lack of
awareness and sensitivity among recruiters, poor job-readiness of the PwDs themselves along with lack of
awareness and training in required skills.

APD works to mobilize marginalized youth with disabilities, assess and provide rehabilitation services and
support to ensure optimal independance with assistive devices and therapy. They are trained in technical
and non-technical courses such as Hospitality, Retail Management, Business Process Outsourcing (BPO),
Horticulture and Industrial Training. Thereafter, the career guidance and placement cell at APD places them
in jobs suited to their qualification and ability. APD also sensitizes employers towards the needs of PwDs for
an equitable work environment.

Livelihood training rekindles the dream of independence

“ I am Padmavathi from Mulbagal village in Kolar district. At the age of 2, I had high fever that turned out
to be a polio attack. My parents, being uneducated, could not tell and my right leg was affected. Though my
parents work in a quarry and earn little, they educated me up to SSLC. I could not pursue my studies
further due to financial constraints. To support my ailing parents, I came to Bangalore to work in a
garment factory and then approached APD.

After the assessment, I enrolled in APD’s Employer Led Training - Hospitality course for 8 weeks at the
Presidency College of Hotel Management (PCHM). I became competent in communication, computers
and also enhanced life skills that helped me change my attitude towards life and gain self-confidence.

After the training, I was sent for an on-job training (OJT) in Vasudev
Adigas. Thereafter, APD placement cell got me a job at Vishal
Mega Mart for a salary of Rs.12000/- with statutory benefits.
I am satisfied and happy that I can support my family and
make my parents proud.”

Spinal Cord Injury Rehabilitation
The government claims that 10 in 10,000 people in India suffer from Spinal Cord Injury (SCI). But APD has
handled over 3000 SCI cases in Karnataka alone, that too in just 3-4 districts. APD has taken the initiative to
be the leader in SCI rehabilitation to drive attention to this area.

There are two SCI rehabilitation programs at APD.

Institution Based Rehabilitation (IBR)

This is an intensive 3.5 months, residential programme where people with spinal cord injury (PwSCI) learn
to wash their clothes, cook food, take care of their daily routine and move or transfer from wheelchair to bed
and other daily chores. This helps them rebuild their social skills and be included in society to lead a
dignified life.

Community Based Rehabilitation (CBR)

Some PwSCIs, especially women, cannot leave home for the residential program. APD then works with them
in the community. Because of the breaks and lower intensity, this program takes 8 months to a year to show
results. However, the trained CBR workers follow-up on a periodic basis to help the PwSCI achieve
2017-18 Achievements

Women rehabilitated 114

APD is the first organization in India to offer custom 3D-printed postural supports to
PwDs with issues such as scoliosis.

There is hope after Spinal Cord Injury
“I was a happily married man with two beautiful daughters, holding a steady job. I thought there was
nothing more I could ask for from life. After an accident, I am wheelchair bound, unable to carry out the
most basic tasks like visiting the toilet.”

Gyanaprakash (42), had given up hope of ever regaining independence when he was referred to APD.
After 3 months of institution based therapy, specially designed for his condition and moral support, he
can manage himself very well. There is pride in his eyes as he says, “I am able to move from my bed to the
wheelchair, have a bath and wear my clothes without assistance. I am now living for the sake of my
daughters. My company has also been supportive and has promised to give my job back. The future is not
hopeless after all.”

“Pride and dignity is my right”

Community Mental Health Programme
Mental health is a growing concern in India. An estimated 0.1% of the country’s population (approx. 10
million) suffer from some form of mental illness. In Karnataka, over 50 lakh people with mental illness
(PwMI) are supported by less than 700 healthcare professionals, doctors and social workers. The lack of
awareness, limited access to mental health care coupled with social stigma makes reaching out to people
with mental illness a tough task.

In order to cater to the emerging needs of persons with mental illness, APD launched the Community
Mental Health Program in 2004. This programme focuses on mental health awareness in the community,
colleges and public places through wall writing and trainings on stress management. Residential training
programme for persons with mental illness on team building, sharing of case studies with parents and other

Currently the program is active in 5 taluks of Davangere district.

Mobility Aids and Assistive Devices
To cater to the growing needs of PwDs, APD manufactures assistive devices such as calipers, crutches and
artificial limbs at its Bangalore headquarters. Some products like special wheelchairs are procured from
Motivation UK and other sources. APD distributed 3500 orthotic assistive devices and donated 650
wheelchairs this year. Mobility aids and assistive devices are critical across programs - early intervention,
education or livelihood - supporting APD’s lifecycle approach to rehabilitate PwDs.

Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) and assisted PwDs provided with assistive devices 2170

Policy and Advocacy

The Policy & Advocacy team is responsible for urban and rural advocacy on disability issues, rights and
entitlements as well as effective lobbying at State and District level, growing Community Based Organizations
(CBO) and sensitizing all stakeholders.

A recent highlight is the team’s collaboration with UNICEF and the Women and Child Development
Department of Government of Karnataka to develop an institutional policy for children with special needs.
APD also collaborated with UNESCO to influence the education policy of the Government of Karnataka.

Strategic Partnerships
APD believes in sharing, nurturing and building the capacity of grassroots NGOs to reach out to maximum
number of people with disability in the new geographies. During 2017-18, twelve strategic partners were
provided with financial and technical support in the areas of Early Intervention, Education & SCI
management. The partners were also supported to have strong organizational monitoring systems, develop
processes and structures in Human Resources, Finance, Marketing and Legal Compliance.

Government Interface
APD continues to network with central and state governments that include Ministries of Women and
Child Welfare (W&CW), Social Justice and Empowerment (SJ&E), Education, Health and Family Welfare
(H&FW) to influence policies and obtain grants to support programs of APD. Our Livelihood (Employer Led
Training) and mainstream Education proposals have been accepted and enrolled for the grant by MSJ&E,
Government of India. Government of Karnataka issued an order on a child-centric grant for speech and
hearing impaired children in Shradhanjali Integrated School. We are also empaneled with the National Skill
Development Corporation (NSDC) and Deen Dayal Upadhayay Gramin Kalyan Yojana (DDUGKY) as a
training partner for short-term courses.

Core Functions
Human Resources Development

Staff attrition was contained at 17% through several supportive HR initiatives and market aligned pay
scales. A structured ‘Nurture/Mentoring Program’ was conducted in which 18 mid-level managers were
trained and groomed as next level leaders within the organization. Domain and training skills of 76 staff
members were enhanced with training programs. The Protection of Women Against Sexual Harassment
(POWASH) committee was formed.

Information Technology and Management Information System

Development and implementation of Goonjan software (mobile app) facilitated data capture for program
monitoring and evaluation at the grassroots level and across all partner NGOs. Centralized inventory of
IT infrastructure was initiated in APD.

Donor Assurance

The Donor Assurance Team facilitated donor relationship and reporting to all the Corporate, Individual
Donors and Funding Agencies, regularly and consistently.

Marketing and Communications

It was heartening to note the positive response from corporate, local agencies and individual donors to
support ongoing programs. This reconfirms the credibility we have earned with the donor community.
Social media and focused marketing activities gave us an opportunity to engage our existing donors and
raise awareness among new donors. We continued to focus on forging long-term relationships with
corporate donors. We also focused on events and expansion into more crowdfunding platforms as part of
the fundraising strategy.

We saw the introduction of hydro therapy in the Early Intervention unit and renovation of the training hall
this year. The movement of the livelihood team to the N S Hema Horticulture Training center and SCI team
to the Jeevan Bhima Nagar center was facilitated.

Shubhajit, Graphic Designer, APD

A massive electric shock had Shubhajit on a hospital bed for 11 months. His
arms were amputated – one below the elbow and the other above – to save his
life. He fought his demons and pushed ahead, became a football champion, a
graphic designer and now – a budding guitarist!

His Mantra
If someone tells you ‘NO’, take it as a challenge and replace it with ‘YES’.
