Organization Details

  • Organization Name:Sanchar A.R.O.D.

Two years later, the group led by Mr.Gautam Chaudhury registered themselves as SANCHAR A.R.O.D (A Society for Appropriate Rehabilitation of the Disabled). SANCHAR started working in 20 villages of South 24 Parganas in West Bengal with few families. Today Sanchar’s CBR model has moved towards a Disability Inclusive Community Development and has touched the lives of thousands of people with disabilities, their families and their communities in the field area of Sanchar in West Bengal. Sanchar also working in other 17 states in India through capacity building of local CBOs on the implementation of CBR to ensure equal rights of persons with disabilities.
