Caregivers of individuals with special needs need equal amount of love, care and support because theirs is a 24/7/365 job with no respite and constant emotional as well as financial strain. It is our aim to give them a platform to become more self-aware, fulfilled, emotionally balanced and strong individuals with an identity separate from their special child.
This is done through one on one counseling sessions and support group sessions with our in-house clinical psychologist.
A new initiative, this program aims at imparting profitable skills to the mothers of children enrolled at Tamahar. The intent is to empower the women to become valued contributors in their household, give them economic independence and most importantly, give a boost to their self-worth and sense of individual fulfillment.
This makes them emotionally as well as economically more resilient and confident. Over time, this translates into emotional growth of the mother and as a result, of the child. Currently, we provide spoken english and embroidery classes. In future, we want to set up a dedicated training centre for them and expand to include computer training and tailoring.
