According to a 2007 World Bank study, disabled youth in India are more than five times more likely to be out of school than the general population, and this disparity is most problematic in rural India, where the disabled population is especially high. In my exposure to KDB, it is clear that its creative approach is helping to resolve this issue by not only providing comprehensive services to disabled youth, but also to their parents and the teachers enlisted by the program. KDB’s model already serves hundreds of families and has the potential to be replicated in other parts of rural India and improve the quality of life for many more additional families and communities with disabled children.
