Caregiver Training

Also referred to as SAHAYOGI, this scheme aims at setting up Care Associate Cells (CACs) to
provide training and create a skilled workforce of care associates to provide adequate and
nurturing care for Person with Disabilities (PwD) and their families who require it. It also
seeks to provide parents an opportunity to get trained in care giving if they so desire. This
scheme will provide a choice of training through two levels of courses to allow it to create
care associates suited to work both with families of persons with Disabilities (PwDs) and
other institutions catering to the needs of the PwDs (NGOs, work centres etc.)
