Background and Objective:
Most special children have unique and hidden talents. It is our endeavour to identify their abilities, set goals and evaluate their progress in specific skills. This is but a means to ensure that these children feel equipped enough to contribute meaningfully to society wherever possible and feel self-reliant.You can read about some sample projects that UWC has implemented in association with its partners here.
