02 Oct, 2016

UNMISH has organised many events, seminars, workshop to spread awareness, acceptance, for its vision of an 'Inclusive Society'. Another step forward ,this time Unmsh is coming up with an revolutionary event ‘Ek Muskaan Ke Liye’ , specially conceptualised to give a day of fun and enjoyment to the special ones on 2nd October Sunday 2016, 10am onwards at the Agri-Horticulture Society of India, Alipore, Kolkata.

An event for 500 children with special needs, their parents and professionals from NGO, Special schools, and integrated schools working with such children. Our aim is to give our children a barrier free environment conducive for fun and enjoyment. This would not only give them enjoyment but also participation and spread awareness and acceptance. The event has cultural programmes, games, dance, music, art, refreshments, gifts specially arranged for every child. All schools working with such children have been invited to the event with their children and representatives. The regular school students would be volunteering at the event. There is no charge whatsoever for the children.

The Honourable Minister of Health and Family welfare, Women Development and Social Welfare,Child development, Dr. Sashi Panja would be presiding over the event . Distinguished personalities and guests from all walks of life including Tollywood stalwarts, various institutional heads, Heads of Departments from Police, Army and Medicine, Industrialists,have consented to come and witness the event.

We have got a huge response and cooperation from the society. There is just few days left to the event and our team is all geared up for Ek Muskaan Ke Liye. Support us in this noble cause to make the event a success and experience happiness.


02 Oct, 2016

Although a total of 1000 people were estimated, the outcome was approximately double of it( above 2000) making EK MUSKAAN KE LIYE a huge success.The event mobilized children with special needs by allowing and encouraging them to come out and interact with others; also let others realize their potential.Thus, proving that the special ones are indeed special and they also can participate and enjoy in events and parties like the regular children. 
This was also a step in helping parents of special children to come out of their fear and further motivate their children to lead a normal life.The program was again a small step towards an inclusive society as not only special child ren and parents participated but also students and teachers from regular school participated and worked hand in hand with them.
As it is believed that snowflakes melts one at a time in spring, a small initiative like EK MUSKAAN KE LIYE did melt the initial inhibitions within every sector of our society.

Observing World Autism Awareness Day

02 Apr, 2016

2nd April is World Autism Awareness Day and we decided to stage a play because visual and theatrical medium is always the best to explain the difficulties faced by the children and their parents in the society.

The play was enacted by children of Nautanki Kolkata - a group working with children having Thalassemia. The Facilitator of the play was Ms. Prakriti Dutta, (masters in Music from Edinburgh) the director of the play Dr. Abhishek Bose (professor of Calcutta University).

This play focused hugely on music and physical acting, as an alternative communication medium, as most of the children with Autism are non- verbal.

The play was followed by panel discussion to explain the need and contents of the play. The panelists were Dr. J. R. Ram (consultant psychiatrist), Dr. Sudha Kaul (Trustee, IICP), Ms. Prakriti Dutta (M. Sc., Music)

The event was attended by a number of pediatricians, neurologists, neuro-psychiatrists, surgeons, orthopedics and other doctors from different streams. It was also attended by different school heads and representatives of pre-schools, montessories, high schools and colleges. Students and teachers from psychology department also attended the event. There were other professionals from field of disability who attended as well as asked several questions to the panelist.
