Department of BBA conducted an outreach program at KRIPA Special School, Chunangamvely. A total of 89 students has participated for the outreach programme, where they spent a whole day with the students. KRIPA Special School is a new member in KRIPA family. A Special School for the mentally challenged children started functioning at KRIPA from 16th July 2018. Beloved Chairman Rev. Fr. Jose Alex CMI blessed the school and inauguration was done by Rev. Fr. Sebastian Thalian, Vicar, St. Joseph’s Church, Chunangamvely, Aluva, Kerala.
It was because of the continuous requests from the parents of mentally challenged children, KRIPA started a special school. As they are working in the field of rehabilitation of the physically challenged for the past 31 years, they hope that they can make the life of mentally challenged also better with a job and a proper place in the society. We assess each student and plan programme for their future life in association with their parents, siblings, close relatives, etc. We first form an Individualized Education Plan considering the strengths and weaknesses of each child and simultaneously we educate their parents on how to rear their child.
