  • Sparsham - Special Initiative In Wayanad District For The Scheduled Tribe (ST) Population:

Probably the first of its kind initiative in the country to provide all disability-related services under one roof for PwDs among the ST population.

Wayanad is the district in Kerala with the maximum number of tribal populations. Majority of them live in isolated remote forest areas in difficultly accessible terrains. Services need to be delivered at their doorsteps. Though there are provisions for general welfare of the tribal population through the tribal department, hitherto no service delivery provisions were made available specifically for the differently abled population among the tribal.

CRC-K intiated an innovative model project named ‘SPARSHAM’ for the PwDs belonging to ST community in the Wayanad District, with the aim to facilitae medical board certificates, assitive devices, leagl gudianship certificate and UDID under a single umbrella, with the support of District ITDP Deaprtmnet, DLSA, DSJ Department, District Medical Office and Disrict Administration.

The offical inaguation of this project was done by Hon'ble District Judge Mr. K P John on 18th October at Panamaram. Smt. Sunitha, Sub-Judge, DLSA, Mr. Cheriyan, DPO, ITDP, Dr Roshan Bijlee, Director, CRC-K, Dr Renuka, DMO and  Mr Pavithran, DSJ Officer attended the programme.

  • Disability assessment and evaluation camps: CRC-K in association with LSGDs and Tribal Welfare Dept. conducted 23 disability identification camps exclusively among the tribal colonies in the Sulthan Bathery, Kalpetta and Mananthavady regions of Wayanad district. A total of 496 PwDs could be evaluated by this unique initiative. These camps revealed that none of the PwDs had undergone any specific disability therapeutic intervention measures till date and they were left unattended with their disabilities. Vast majority of them were not even in possession of a disability medical board certificate. Faculties from dept. of Occupational Therapy, Physiotherapy, Speech & Hearing, Special Education, Prosthetic & Orthotic Unit and Social Work & Placement Unit were attended these camps:
