It is important that persons with Down syndrome are treated as individuals in the society. Inclusiveness needs to be brought in to ensure that they also feel pride in what they are doing. DSFI therefore decided to come up with some life skill programs in order to make them employable.
Vocational training was introduced to help these children here, make a living and be financially independent. Weaving with special looms, baking and catering, candle making, leaf plate making and plastic bottle making are all taught here as a part of the vocational therapy.
Vocational Training brings a sense of purpose not only to the person with Down syndrome but also to the parents who feel more confident that their child would be able to survive the harsh world on their own.
