E-Educational & Life Skill Training Program
Epilepsy, especially when uncontrolled
has a huge impact on the psychosocial life of the person living
with it. Overprotection, lack of opportunities to socialize,
poor time management and lack of vocational opportunities cause
significant interpersonal conflicts and behavioural problems.
To help with these issues we are having the ‘E-Educational &
Life Skill Training Program’.
of the Program: to empower people with skills for independent
living and impart relevant training for their social, emotional
and personality development thereby improving their quality of life.
