NIRMAN Association

Journalist: Divenita

Nirman is functioning successfully since 1994. The Association has the main objective of rehabilitating those with mental disability by focusing on and developing their differential abilities and making them useful members of the Society.

Nirman Association is running a center for special education and vocational training cum production (Nirman) and a home for the handicapped (Sahavas), both located in Hindustan Machine Tools (HMT) Township in Balanagar, Hyderabad.

Nirman also believes in self-advocacy. A definite time is set aside for daily discussion where the special employees are encouraged to form an opinion on various subjects and activities, through group discussions, skits etc. They are also taught life skills, enabling them to be self-dependent, thus enhancing their acceptance among family members and outsiders. 

Nirman Association has also started Sahavas, a Home for the mentally handicapped, in the vicinity of Nirman. Sahavas is sponsored by National Trust, Government of India and has the capacity to accommodate 20 youths. It is located in a spacious accommodation, surrounded by lush green environ, offering excellent facilities for comfortable living, and opportunities for overall growth of its wards.
