Project Identification and Intervention (IDI) is Perkins India’s latest breakthrough initiative designed to transform the lives of children who have multiple disabilities with vision impairment (MDVI) by finding them and connecting them to learning for the first time. We use a systematic process grounded in thorough data collection - and we do this hand-in-hand with our local partners.
Partnering with local eye hospitals, NGOs, and governments, Perkins India has launched Project IDI in Uttar Pradesh and we look to expand throughout the state and into new regions.
For every child identified through Project IDI, we work to ensure he/she:
Has a disability certificate
Has aids and appliances that can enhance access to learning
Is connected to educational services
Has family members who are informed about the schemes and concessions available to their child
Has family members who are empowered to advance educational opportunities for their child
When children with MDVI have access to learning their lives and their families' lives change. Inclusion in school and community life gives children with MDVI the chance to reach their full potential.
