The specific areas of expertise in Pro-Vision, GGAMCCC and RUCODE India are optimally used for effective implementation of the project. Thus a good combination of various strengths and resources would certainly prove to be cost effective and bring maximum benefits to the CwDs and their families.

This project implementation commenced in February 2015 as an experimental project and based on the experiences gained and issues confronted; it was redesigned to address the issue more comprehensive and sustainable way.
