Education

Education is bedrock of awareness and a healthy society cannot be imagined without education. In view of this, MUS is has made people in the villages aware about education through women groups. Illiterate women were imparted knowledge of alphabet and skills to make their signatures. Parents of girls not attending school were made aware of the importance of education and many girls were admitted to the schools.

The organisation is conducting awareness camps, seminars and workshops in the interest of the disabled. Attempts are underway to arrange financial assistance through the welfare programmes of the Government.

Impressed with the work of the organisation, the National Trust of the Government of India nominated MUS as a representative of the Local Level Committee for running welfare programmes for mentally and physically disabled people (vide order no. 2475/RL1A/2007 dated 14 March 2007). The Local Level Committee appointed 68 legal guardians and got 178 health insurances done during the year 2009-10. Health cards have been arranged from the Ministry of Social Justice and Empowerment.

The organisation is conducting a survey of mentally retarded, cerebral palsy, autism, multiple-disabled, etc., in Mau district.
