Shishu Sarothi  celebrated its 32nd Foundation Day on 1st May 2019. Established in 1987 in one room set up with two children, it has grown over the years into a leading regional organisation.

They have worked unceasingly in North East India to flag the issue of disability that has been almost invisible in the context of other pressing socio-economic and political issues surrounding the conscience of the people of the region.

Over the past three decades, the organisation has been working to enable and empower children and persons with disabilities even as they continue to combat challenges of inaccessibility, exclusion, and stigma.

With the ratification of UNCRPD by India in 2007 and the enactment of RPWD Act 2016, a whole new paradigm has opened up that changes the discourse from charity and welfare to rights and entitlements. This has significantly altered the trajectory of their work with new activities around the provisions of the RPWD Act.

Ensuring the rights of persons with disability is now of utmost importance for us and this is reflected in their work that has also evolved into a twin-track approach, with the provision of need-based services on the one hand and pushing for rights and generic inclusion strategies on the other.

Shishu Sarothi is dedicated to upholding the inherent dignity and autonomy of children and persons with disabilities through its early intervention services for young children with disabilities, promotion of inclusive education, awareness, and advocacy of rights and carrying out evidence-based research in North East India.
