  • Saritsa Foundation prepares visually impaired girls, women and School children for disasters on eve of International Disaster Reduction day 2013. Saritsa Foundation conducts 4 workshops on Life Saving Education from 12th October to 30th November. This workshop for visually impaired girls of Kamla Mehta School for Blind Girls was conducted on 12th October 2013.
  • Saritsa Foundation has recognized that the People with disabilities are disproportionately vulnerable in emergencies and face high loss of lives and it aggravates their poverty since most of vulnerable people live in poverty in urban slums and rural areas. To mark the importance of International Day for Disaster Reduction 2013, Saritsa Foundation conduct 4 workshop for visually impaired women, girls and school children. Saritsa Foundation has recognized that when we do not include about 70 million women, girls, children and men with disability in the process of Disaster Risk Reduction in INDIA, we are denying opportunities to them to build their capacity to protect lives in emergencies, which increases their vulnerability.
  • Saritsa Foundation analyzes that reasons for their vulnerability are that they have no opportunity to build their knowledge to respond, or learn to adhere to early warning. It is a reality that they have never thought of immediate plans, they have not thought of a process for moving out of their houses, offices , institutions and schools. They have not discussed and planned with their families to cope with such emergencies, friends, community members including people in local governance. They are never a part of plans or decisions for DRR. The parents and families of persons with disability themselves are very little aware to plan for them They are not aware about their evacuation plans, their transportation, protection of women and girls from sexual violence, food, water, shelter, latrines and medicine provisions as well as their buddies or care takers.
  • How Saritsa Foundation has been building capacity of persons with disability since June 2000? Saritsa Foundation is the most vibrant and committed contributor amongst national and international NGOs in the field of building capacity of the most vulnerable in India. With its minimal resources it has imparted life saving education to 9750 physically challenged, visually impaired, slow learners, mentally retarded, suffering with autism, deafness and dumbness. Saritsa Foundation knows that disasters do not discriminate, human beings do. To take care of this concern Saritsa Foundation endeavoring to unite people in Governance, Administrators of Institutions, international NGOs, and corporate sectors, religious institutions
