What is Kerala Snehayanam Scheme 2023
The task of caring and providing rehabilitation support for persons with autism, cerebral palsy, mental retardation and multiple disabilities can be stressful and daunting for parents, especially mothers. Such persons with disabilities coming under the purview of National Trust Act 1999 always require special care and attention since they cannot perform their day to day activities without someone else’s assistance.
Sometimes taking care of such PwDs can be quite challenging for mothers who are widowed or divorced and have no other source of permanent income. So, the Department of Social Justice has formulated a novel initiative “Snehayanam”. The main objective of Kerala Snehayanam Scheme is to give free electric auto rickshaws to mothers of handicap people. This scheme would provide a means of livelihood to families of physically handicapped people.
