Making a difference

In full-throated ease

In full-throated ease  

TO BRING out the innate potential of the physically challenged, is by itself a rewarding experience. And the Pranavam Service Society (PSS), a group working for the rehabilitation of the physically and the mentally challenged children, has been doing just that.

It has planned to conduct a contest for nearly 800 special children from various societies; charitable institutions and schools in the city on January 25. The event will include music, debate, quiz and art competitions. The PPS founder and president, Shrilatha, will be organising the event for the sixth time. It is heartening to see the increasing level of awareness among city residents, as evident by the growing number of participants over the years, she said. The society aims at imparting confidence building measures not only for special children but also parents and guardians as their involvement plays a vital role in honing their inherent talent. She also feels that programmes like these will enable public to come forward to render their support for these special kids. Besides conducting such programmes, the society is involved in various other educational, cultural and extra-curricular activities. NSS volunteers from various colleges have rendered assistance in providing vocational training to the children.
