As done the previous year, Vaishishtyam organized a 3-day event (from 1st to 3rd Dec., 2016) to commemorate the World Disability Day (3rd Dec.) or the International Day of People with Disability.
Vaishishtyam itself serving over 200 children suffering from psychological / learning / physical disabilities, this Day, therefore, holds a special meaning.
And we wanted to make it really, really special, not just for the 200+ children at Vaishishtyam but from other similar Schools and Centres in and around Mathura region. So over 1000 children, 300 trainers & faculty, others participated in the 3-day event which included a gamut of activities (sports, cultural, painting and other competitions, etc.) to encourage these children to showcase their talent and abilities.
Another key objective of the event was to encourage a better understanding of people affected by a disability as well as raise awareness about the benefits of integrating disabled persons into every aspect of life, from economic, to political, to social and cultural.
The closing ceremony on Day-3 witnessed distribution of prizes & medals and disability aids (wheel-chairs, tricycles, etc.).
Heartfelt gratitude to all those who supported this event and made it special.
