EDUCATION OF A CHILD WITH DISABILITY IS NOT A CHOICE, IT IS A RIGHT.

We often refer to children with disability as being ‘special’. What makes them special is not their disability but rather their will to live in spite of their handicap. It is this ‘will’ that we nurture at TULIP Children and help children become independent and contributing members of society.

Project TULIP children stands for The Universal Learning Integrated Programme (TULIP) that ensures admission, retention and completion of elementary education for children with disability.

HOW DO WE DO THAT?


Guiding parents of children with disability in the admission procedure of regular schools

Ensuring these children are retained in school until completion of elementary education

Regular counselling sessions for parents and students

Workshops for parents to help their child cope in a regular school and live as independently as possible

Workshops for teachers to help them understand the importance of educating children with disability in a normal environment

Workshops for principals to guide them interpret and implement the Right to Education (RTE) 2009 correctly so as to benefit every child in school

Workshops for caregivers, guardians and general public to help them understand their role in supporting those with disability to live within their own families with respect and dignity.

Our most recent collaboration has been with CHILDLINE, where teachers from our organisation have been trained to go into schools to create awareness on good touch-bad touch and sexual abuse – one of the biggest causes of intellectual disability amongst children.
