Basic Information about the initiative
Aarth Astha has been working in slum (Govindpuri) and urban village (Lalkuan) since the year 2001 for the rights of disabled persons with specific focus on children with disability. In the initial years, the approach was in service delivery mode which over a period of time has evolved to advocating for rights of persons with disability and how communities can be made inclusive. The partnership of Aarth ASTHA with Action Aid began in the same year with a community based rehabilitation program in Lal Kuan (Mehrauli- Badarpur Road, Delhi). For the first three years, funding was given in the National Funding (NF) since 2005; ASTHA then entered into a longer-term partnership with three-year agreement under the Next Steps Program till 2007. Later in 2010, the partnership flowered for a long term commitment for ‘Making communities and schools inclusive’ in Govindpuri and Lalkuan areas. The focus is on inclusive education of the children with disabilities and marginalized groups.
