Handi-Care has had an excellent and eventful 2014....

Among all the major achievements, our participation in getting a significant grant from Grand Challenges Canada to Amar Seva Sangam, stands out on top... GRAND CHALLENGES CANADA, is dedicated to supporting bold ideas with big impact in low and middle income countries and is funded by the Govt. of Canada.GCC has announced an investment of up to $3.1 million CAD in 11 innovations in India, designed to save and improve the lives of women and children.

Amar seva Sangam is one Among them that got funding for an unique Early intervention program. This novel project will empower local rehabilitation workers to implement early intervention programs for children with developmental delays. Customized tablet applications are used to coordinate with specialists located remotely, to tailor individualized programs for identified children.

The funding was announced by the Honourable Chris Alexander, Minister of Citizenship and Immigration, during the Grand Challenges Canada India Innovation Summit in Toronto on Dec 15, 2014.
