FAME has the perfect blend of commitment and skills to redress the imbalance
FAME has a vision to make education and opportunities accessible to children and young adults with special needs. And one of the most optimal ways to achieve this is to consolidate its learnings, experience and insights into a formal platform so that others who believe in their vision can benefit from it.
This is the genesis of FAME Academy - a Centre of Excellence for educating, training and empowering all stakeholders in the area of special needs.
FAME’s life span approach to special education means that it continues to provide opportunities to its students even after they complete their schooling. FAME Swavalambana helps to economically empower young adults with special needs through vocational training and opportunities for entrepreneurship.
FAME’s respite care centre KARUNA is a safe haven. The focus here is to build skills which allow independence to the extent possible in self care and communication. Karuna also acts as a means by which parents dealing with the challenges of caring for loved ones with special needs derive support.
FAME also works with rural communities to ensure that children with special needs in these areas are provided adequate support and help. They have partnered with Anganwadis, doctors and staff of the Primary Health Centres, to conduct successful intervention and sensitization programs in the community.
