CSR : UPL Limited Signs MOU with Save the Children India to support Special Care Centre

MUMBAI: At UPL Limited, we have always believed that disability is never a handicap and people need to change their attitude to provide opportunities to the people with special needs. In India, a majority of the children with special needs do not receive any formal education, in spite of the practice of inclusive education in some schools.

This situation is because children with disabilities and learning deficiencies are segregated from mainstream schools and other regular routines and social activities of normal children.

UPL Limited has signed an MOU with Save the Children India (SCI) to support Special Care Centre – A School for hearing impaired and intellectually disabled children that provides holistic education, nutrition and transportation, in a healthy nurturing, learning environment. SCI is working towards betterment, empowerment and right of special children.

In 1988, Late Vipula Kadri founded Save the Children India with vision of making India a child-friendly nation. SCI is committed to preventing exploitation and all other forms of discrimination of vulnerable women and children, and empowering them to lead a life of dignity, self-respect and independence.

Save the Children India located in BKC, Mumbai and is well-known for its inclusive education philosophy where in children with special needs are combined with the mainstream children to encourage overall improved student learning. 

The Special Care Centre also offers Vocational training which includes woodwork, carpentry, gardening, baking, housekeeping & more giving students a wide range of skills.
