  Special Child Development Centre
  For nearly three decades, Reach(Society for Remedial Education Assessment counseling Handicapped) has tried to add meaning to the lives of childrenwho are differently-abled.
  The organisation added the swasraya centre for South India in Thrissur, in 1991, with 5 hearing impaired girls;the centre began in Shanta Menon's home and is now in it's own building in Kuttur; Shanta's first exposure to disability was through her sister who suffered brain damage due to injury.
  It is clear that not enough is done for 10% of India's population that is physically and mentally challenged.
  In the West,many such individuals are fully integrated into the rest of society and even perform challenging jobs like watch and precision scientific instrument manufacturing.
  Reach-swasraya has not only helped challenged children grow into confident adults but have seen to it that they are financially independent, too. At present the institution has 175 students.
