ADVOCACY, FUNDRAISING AND PUBLIC RELATIONS DEPARTMENT

The Advocacy, Fundraising & Public Relations Department arranges various activities throughout the year for publicity, promotion and awareness of facilities available in PSRD. Special effort is made for raising funds and organizing events and advocating on behalf of persons with disabilities. Newsletters are printed on a quarterly basis to highlight the activities of PSRD. The annual report is compiled and printed.

This department is also responsible for maintaining records of old students with disabilities and assisting them in every aspect of their lives (education, training, job placement, loans, treatment, surgeries, assertive devices, matrimonial services and other needs). Old students are also referred to various organizations for employment and training. Last year (2018), 154 students were assisted in the issuance of their I.D. cards and Disability Certificates.

PSRD joins organisations worldwide to create awareness regarding persons with disabilities to ensure inclusiveness and equality.
