Jeevan, Dhanbad - Site Visit Report
20 June 2008, Friday
Jeevan is an institute for mentally Disabled children founded by A. K. Singh Dhanbad ,Jeevan is Still 1992 . The institute has benefited and continues to benefit a large number of special children, Jeevan a started Community -Based Rehabilitation project catering to special children in a few village near B.C.C.L. is providing Electric, Water & Building in this nablers .
Jeevan Home - Based and Community - Based Rehabilitation are primarily for children who cannot attend the school at Dhanbad due to distance, capacity constraints and other factors. As part of their HBR and CBR programs, Jeevan trains social workers (called as community Resource Workers) at the institute who then go to different village to train special children and their parents to help the disabled become self sufficient. Jeevan has established an efficient system for CBR. In its current form,. Jeevan chooses a home of a disabled child as a temporary center in each village, and the CBR trains the disabled children who assemble three. Village Level Works (VLWs) are typically parents or family members of disabled children who are trained to help the children and assist with bringing the children over to the center and mobilizing village among other things.
Jeevan Institue at Dhanbad
After the village visits, we headed to the Jeevan Institute at Dhanbad which sits on a sprawling 3.5 acres of land. The institute runs a part residential school for about 270 disabled children currently, 50 of whom are boarders. Other services the institute offers include vocational training, small time employment, self - help, yoga, therapy, micro-credit, and so on. They also inform families about government schemes available to special children, and help them procure IDs and Train passes.
At the school, I was welcomed by some staff and children. Bala Baskar and a few other then took me around on a tour of the school. We started with the medical room - there was a doctor there when I want. He spends a few hours every day at the school and told me that he ends up attending to 2 - 3 children daily who need some kind of medical attention. All the classrooms are on the ground floor. The children are put in different classes based on their mental age which is determined by administering a series of tests and evaluations. Given their experience, Jeevan has formalized a lot of these processes and evaluations very well. I visited and spent time interacting
with the children and the teachers in all the classes. I asked some basic questions about shapes and colors, and had enthusiastic responses from many of them. The school has a large physiotherapy room, where I met parents of some of the children. They mentioned instances where their children had greatly benefited from physiotherapy and training. There were a couple of children who had not been able to move at all before but were now able to exercise some of theirlimbs.
After visiting classes ranging from pre-primary to high school level, I got a chance to see the vocational training sessions. I was given a demonstration of various stages of chalk making by bunch of students. Some of the other vocational course include tailoring, embroidery, knitting, candle-making, weaving and others. I did not see any of these in action but was shown finished products that were on display.
We then walked up a ramp (this is mandatory in a special school as per government norms)n to the first floor. On one end, there was a large hall which is used for large meetings and functions. It was around lunch time, and parents and others were there providing lunch to day-scholars. I was then shown the girls and boys hostels. The rooms and the bathrooms were pretty clean. There were beds and bunk-beds for all. The boys section was pretty big and I was told that there were a total of 40 - 50 children staying in the hostel.
We then headed to the office. I was shown a lot of photo albums of various functions and other activities after which we discussed the proposal and budget in detail. I have summarized my observations & suggestions below. I was getting late for my train to Dhanbad, and so I hurriedly bid my good -byes and left. I was accompanied to the train station by 5-6 staff members and we ended waiting there for more than an hour because the train was delayed.
• Jharia is the closest the Dhanbad and hence seems economically better off than the
• CBR seems to be an effective way to provide care for special children at the village level. There are both advantage (local awareness, village-level support & care, scalability, no capacity issues, etc.) and disadvantages (no exposure, no access to material and equipments) of CBR compared to bringing these children to school but overall I think it's a very good model.
Having a special child at home most often means that the mother has to sacrifice going to work and earning that extra income. This could be a real issue for poor families in
• villages. By having a center with staff that can take care of the child & provide education during the day would be an enormous relief for the parents.
• There were six, four(including one whom we met at his home) and three children in the three centers when I visited which means the centers are not functioning at full capacity right now.
• The CRWs seem to be well trained and are able to handle the children at ease. I think they are the widows, physically challenged, etc is a noble idea.
• The center has to function like a combination of day care center and a normal school with fixed timings, a timetable, etc. The parents and village should be explicitly told not be disturb the children during the day and emphasized to take the education seriously.
• It does not make sense (in terms of the cost per child) to have a center with fewer than 10 children or so. That is the reason I asked them to send a list of all special children in different village that they mean to cater to. But it looks like the list includes quite a few adults and a lot of adolescents. We should seek clarification about this from Jeevan.
• From the job descriptions of the various staff for this project, it will be a good idea to get a sense of the volume of work for each of them.
• We should have direct access all staff members working on this project (with permission from Jeevan, of course) so that we can get a good handle of the situation at the ground at all times.
• Given that a lot of training material is available at Jeevan, we should make sure there is a plan in place to bring the children over to the institute regularly for additional training and exposure.
• Training and providing awareness to the parents and village is an important aspect not to be ignored .
• Constant evaluation & assessment (and related documentation) has to be carried out regularly for all children coming to the centers.
