AMIABLE AID FOUNDATION is a secular, non-governmental, non-profit making, non-political, non-sectarian social organization which is committed to guide, help, direct, coordinate, strengthen and reshape new dawn of opportunities for the persons with intellectual challenge. AMIABLE AID‘s specialized resource center, striving for the social, economic, educational and cultural integration of the disabled persons in the wider society which take it to a highest standard of excellence.

Whereas, on witnessing the biggest natural calamity, South-Asian tsunami, AMIABLE AID involved itself in corpse retrieval, cremation of bodies, rescue the entangled persons amid destructions, medical assistance to survivors, distribution of relief materials, undertaking de-trauma, counseling programs and rebuilding tsunami devastated infrastructures at Nagapattinam district, South India. Its humanitarian aid includes a care home for tsunami-caused orphan children, capacity building initiatives for tsunami-caused widows and vocational training for the disabled - apart from its regular programmes for the children with intellectual challenge.

After successful completion of major social projects during the initial and consolidated phase of tsunami response, the different level of sensitivity incites AMIABLE AID to put the accent on its own committed priority to intercede the interests of intellectually challenged children and adults.

As AMIABLE AID implements best supportive care system, it has earned a reputation of strong system care providing credential based organization in this region. Dwelling on the strength of its reputation and with the confidence gained from the accomplishment of major tsunami projects, AMIABLE AID set its goal higher to reach out more people in need. The result is an unprecedented surge in consumption of services across the vast social spectrum. This opportunity is wellspring of AMIABLE AID incline to expand. To help drive global growth, we are passionately investing our resources and energies to institute chain of residential care homes, hospitals, resource and research centers at various geographical locations worldwide engaging established local organizations. A full-fledged residential care facility, medical and Research Centre is being established at Tiruchirapalli, Tamilnadu, South India.

GENESIS – GENERAL CONTEXT

Social Institutes are becoming an essential dimension of public life in all levels and in all part of the world. The government with its restricted means and huge demands witnessed a growing inability to cope with the proliferation of political, economical, social problems and had to draw upon the support of voluntary organizations and voluntary workers. Thousands of voluntary organisations came forward to carry aloft the torch of human welfare in partnership with government. A close look at the efforts of those institutes would reveal that it is being witnessed, due to lack of coordination (1) uneven, development of welfare services with advanced areas getting a large share and certain backward areas developing none of the activities (2) duplication of the activities with different institutions organizing the same activity in the same locality (3) that qualitative standards do not step with quantitative expansion and (4) the rigidity of rules and conditions attached to the various schemes of assistance that discourage voluntary organisation from availing of the benefit from these schemes.

GENESIS - SOCIAL CONTEXT

On social context, the priority social pursuit taken up by AMIABLE AID is for the disabled sector. The most ordinary of aspirations - to enter school, work in the fields, go out to worship, get married, the prosaic ingredients of even the most humble person’s workday life cycle - are denied to them. Despite profound and consistent denial of their human rights, an estimated 50 million men, women and children with disabilities have remained on the outer periphery of both public policy and social action in India. They are most frequently victims of extreme social prejudice and ostracism, even as they struggle to achieve their potential of a fulfilled, dignified and useful life.

And, People with disabilities are invisible in political agendas, in human rights struggles, in development strategies, in social science research. Nothing been done to improve the existential experience of women and girls with disabilities, who live with disabilities in the countryside. Graver are social attitudes, of shame and ridicule, beginning often within the family, which further immobilize people with disabilities.

Also, a sense of isolation and pervasive low self-esteem are widely amongst people with disabilities. They felt humiliated by their sense of dependency for even simplest acts of daily living, like bathing, eating, and attending nature’s call. The situation is even more tenuous for old persons with disabilities who lack younger care-givers.

It is in this context that AMIABLE AID was set up to muster an effort on scientific lines to organize activities for the welfare of the persons with physical and intellectual challenge impoverished in weaker sections of the society with emphasis on rural, backward and remote areas.
