Good care and guidance are very important for mentally challenged children especially in rural areas and were the kids parents had to face to lot challenges. KDB trust and its founder Mr. Rao Kasinadhuni and his family have put in a lot of effort to setup this institute and also educate parents in the rural areas so that their mentally challenged kids can improve their living standards. The trust had also received award for social service from President of INDIA.
Review from Guidestar
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.
They say children are best judges of character. If there is any truth to it, my 12 year old son’s testimonial says it all about KDB. He & I visited the school run by KDB Trust two years ago. The visit induced caring in my son. The fact that just one visit to the school can impress an 11 year old child speaks volumes about the amazing effort of KDB to help those kids at the school. What the family of Kasinadhuni Rao is doing for the mentally and physically challenged children and their families is truly commendable. It is giving hope to many of those parents who would not have seen the progress they are seeing in their children without the help of KDB. I recommend watching the video http://youtu.be/fuuYCVLHWEY for hearing some testimonials from the parents of the children who are getting help from the KDB Inc.
