Committee For Differently Abled

Motto : Enabling the Disabled

Objectives

  • * To provide opportunities for the differently abled to equip themselves and lift themselves from the marginalized status.

  • * To train the differently abled in skills that would fetch an employment.

  • Committee for the disabled students was established in 1991. Visually Challenged students have been admitted in the regular courses and with the financial support of the Committee. In 1996 LOGOS a public telephone booth was opened to give employment to our unemployed differently abled graduates. This has grown to be a unit with DTP, Photocopying, spiraling and lamination works giving fulltime employment to 4 differently abled women.


    In 2004, a Centralised Computer Centre (Triple C) was opened to train a wider circle of differently abled men and women of Kanyakumari District in computer skills and other self-employment skills. The Committee cater the welfare of our differently abled students in various ways.


    Free Computer Training on Skill Development Initiative - M.S. Office, DTP, Tally and Web Designing for the Disabled people of Kanyakumari District was conducted every year during semester holidays.
