Our Impact

 alt=

In our rather small journey, we have realized, “Conviction is Courage” and have marched ahead with improving the lives of around 7400 persons and more than 1500 dependent children in their education. NLR Foundation has identified 144 leprosy colonies in the 7 states and we are looking forward to take up more colonies and more dependent children as soon as possible with a working principle of Disability Inclusive Development.

By the year 2015, 397 Self Care Groups (SCG) were developed in leprosy colonies. 3276 person's practices self-care in these groups.

Plantar ulcer healed in 2187 persons practicing self-care. New ulcers were prevented in 2927 Persons having sensory loss over sole. Self - Stigma reduced and comparatively they are more capable to take decisions about management of their disabilities.

Persons affected by leprosy, persons disabled due to LF, and persons with diabetic feet have been trained for inclusive self- care for feet and this trend became successful with feasibility.

 

After vocational training completion, around 70% students started immediate earning through jobs in their respective arenas .

Many students opted for higher education with NLRF support after completing their Sr. Secondary Schools.

Health Camps in the community where ordinary people also takes services along with disabled people helps in Stigma Reduction and promotes relationship building amongst people and bridges the gap between Govt. healthcare staff and disabled people.
