MEETING WITH A SELF HELP GROUP – THE INDIAN STAMMERING ASSOCIATION


My name is Mrs. Raji Vijayakumar. I work as a teacher and am currently pursuing my B.Ed in Special education.

As a part of the assignments given to me by the university, I am supposed to write a report on a meeting with any self help group. I had contacted a few of my friends who work with NGOs to help me with locating once such SHG. At the same time, I too was browsing the net to locate some SHG and I chanced upon The Indian Stammering Association. I then contacted Harish, the Goa co-ordinator who gave me Abhinav’s number. Abhinav was kind enough to permit me to attend the  meeting. All the members of the group were very friendly and my husband and I felt very much at home among them.

The meeting itself was an eye opener to both my husband (who I had taken along to click a few photographs) and me. It was nice talking to the members of the group and listening to their experiences. I was impressed with the courage with which they have dealt with the various hurdles in life and also with their patience and perseverance. Their never-give-up attitude and meeting challenges head on are a few lessons I carried with me.

Kudos to the association for the excellent work that they are doing. I wish them all the best for their future.
