“The Cheshire Home here having more than 30 resident, enables inmates who are challenged in several ways to be empowered by training them in different skills like tailoring, screen printing, greeting-card making, phenyl-making, soap-making, envelope-making and horticulture. The jasmine cultivation has been helping the home generate some income. Government grants are not regular and timely. It has to run the home by donations and through the income generated by selling the material produced by the inmates. The Leonard Cheshire Disability International (founder of the Cheshire Home all over the world), With ‘Result based management’, with best efforts could improve the living conditions as also empower the disabled with livelihood program” added Mrs Aranha.
