Deepak (29) and Rakesh (20) are severely retarded siblings by birth. They have a younger sister (17) who is also severely retarded. When they joined Apne Sahare they had severe behavior problems characterized by aggressive and hostile behavior. They were hyperactive, slept very little, had no control on their ablutions and were incapable of performing any personal chores on their own. We have provided them with a new and different living environment where full time attendants and care takers look after them and cater to all their needs. They have been trained to perform basic daily chores independently. Under the expert guidance at our vocational training Center they are also being trained to make non-toxic Holi colors. No medicines are prescribed by us. We however administer medicines as instructed by the parents. Counseling is done by qualified psychologists whenever required. Deepak and Rakesh have responded very positively to their new home and have shown a lot of improvement. They feel a great sense of achievement in being able to perform the basic chores on their own. They are no longer aggressive. Their parents have expressed complete satisfaction with the progress made by the siblings.
 Story of Anupam
Anupam was 8 years old when he enrolled in Prabhat. He had multiple disabilities including Cerebral Palsy. He was extremely weak and therefore unable to sit, eat or drink without help. His parents had sadly concluded that Anupam would never be able to lead a normal life and considered him to be a worthless burden. Anupam is provided nourishing food. When his limbs picked up some strength he was taught the basic necessities of life with painstaking efforts over a prolonged period. Subsequently physiotherapy was given and some basic education was imparted in keeping with his ability to learn. Our effort was to make him as self reliant as a person with his disability can be. The meals provided to him on a regular basis have brought about considerable improvement in his physical and mental well being. He can stand on his own with support, drives a wheelchair, sings songs and participates actively in games/fun activities. He can wear his clothes, play; can write his own name, a few 3 to 4 letter words and numbers and simple additions and subtractions. His life is valued now! He is learning to separate flower petals and separate seeds from the pods for making non toxic colours.
