SOULINK LANKA COMMUNITY BASED REHABILITATION CENTRE GALHINNA & MATALE (CENTRAL PROVINCE)
Disabled children are another group who face exclusion and various discrimination. It is common among those who are mentally retarded. Such children have very few options related to inclusive education and special education which could make a huge difference to their development. There is a lack of such schools and facilities, as well as trained teachers. There are so many such children scattered over Sri Lanka. The Parents of such children sometimes keep these children hidden inside their homes due to the feelings of low esteem. It should be a priority of everyone concerned to highlight the needs of such children.
The vision behind this Project is.
• To remove the stigma of the society towards these disabled children and their families.
• To eliminate the low esteem of the parents of these children.
• To socialize them so that the society accepts them as an equal part.
• To rehabilitate, train and empower them to stand on their feet and stand tall.
• To train teachers and parents to handle such children.
CENTRE AT GALHINNA
It was the hard work and struggle of a single lady which gave birth to a Centre at Udatalawinna and Galhinna which are situated a few kilometers off the Hill Capital Kandy. Ms. Ummi Yousuf (Roohma Abdeen) the lady instrumental for initiating this Centre with all the goodwill. This was due to her passion towards such children and, as she wanted to bring light to the lives of these unprivileged souls. There are so many such Muslim villages particularly in the Central Province, which has a big demand for such Centres for children with special needs. As most Muslims parents are themselves poor and not educated, rehabilitation programs are conducted for them too.
It was such conviction that led her to start an Organisation named Soulink Lanka in partnership with Br. Rhumy Amith, who is a tower of strength to her, and two such Centres
