Let us assume that there are 3,000 children who are physically challenged. GRIRR is the only NGO dedicated to the rehabilitation of physically challenged children in Metiaburz. The size of the estimated ‘market’ is 15 times GRIRR’s existing treatment capacity. *Based on the Indian census average of 2.13% of the population being disabled


GRIRR provides physio therapy, speech therapy, occupation therapy, special education and mobility aids. There is a growing need to address the rehabilitation needs of children from marginalised families. These families are unable to afford rehabilitation, making a subsidized intervention necessary.

  • Speech therapy

    Speech Therapy for Children: In the case of children, speech therapy can occur in a classroom, small group setting, or one-on-one, depending on the nature of the speech disorder. The exercises and activities involved in speech therapy are tailored to the child's age and individual needs. During therapy for children, speech-language pathologists (SLPs) may:
    1. Engage in interactive conversations and play, incorporating books, pictures, and objects to stimulate language development.
    2. Demonstrate correct sounds and syllables within age-appropriate play to teach the child how to produce specific sounds accurately.
    3. Offer strategies and assignments for both the child and their parent or caregiver, enabling them to continue speech therapy practices at home.

  • Ration Distribution during Covid lockdown

    Since its inception, GRIRR has been diligently working to support families with children with disabilities, as well as distressed community women, aiming to uplift their social and economic standing through various awareness and outreach programs. These efforts extend beyond Kolkata and predominantly focus on Bihar's population.
    The contributions from Kolkata Gives, PwC, and Goonj Kolkata have significantly strengthened GRIRR's efforts in combating Covid-19. These contributions have enabled it to provide essential provisions like dry rations to those in need, particularly children and women with disabilities in the most vulnerable segments of society. Over the past three months of the pandemic, GRIRR has distributed dry rations in Garden Reach, Metaburuz in Kolkata, and the villages of Bihar, specifically in Murar Pur, Block Lahladpur in the Chapra (Saran) district.

  • Physiotherapy

    Physiotherapy goes beyond alleviating orthopedic pain; it also tackles neurological conditions such as stroke, cerebral palsy, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's disease, and more.
    Physiotherapy treatments utilize therapeutic exercises to enhance strength, improve range of motion, correct posture and muscle imbalances, conduct joint mobilization and manipulation, employ soft tissue massages, and incorporate stretching and trigger point therapy to reduce stiffness and alleviate pain. The Physiotherapy Departmentat GRIRR is pioneering efforts to reach out to underprivileged segments of society, making a significant impact.

  • Special education for children with disabilities

    The primary focus of Special Education is to facilitate learning for children with disabilities, with an emphasis on avoiding exclusive placement in specialized classrooms. Students eligible for special education benefit from an Individualized Education Program (IEP), which ensures tailored instruction and resources at no cost to their families. Specialists work with students to harness their strengths while addressing their challenges. Families play a crucial role in the team that determines the necessary support for students to thrive in their educational journey.

  • Women Empowerment And Community Development

    The vocational training workshops empower economically disadvantaged women with valuable livelihood skills. Recently, the organisation initiated the vocational training program in the Metaburuz slums of Kolkata's Garden Reach, starting with one training center on Ram Nagar Lane. This year, it has extended the training to 52 participants in Garden Reach, offering courses in Clay Pot Painting and Stitching.
    In a broader effort to support the underprivileged, it offers rigorous training in soft toy making to 40 disabled individuals. The program targeted 52 women from Garden Reach Slums but extended its reach to needy families in Ward numbers 133 to 141 in Maheshtala and Budgbudge, providing training for business skill development.
