Some of us from SCAN group went on a 3-day trip to Coonoor organised by Akila and Sriram of Amaze in coordination with NALS
There were about 13-14 special needs’ kids and adults who took part in all the activities (High rope, low rope, rappelling, zip line, etc) besides learning to live independently. It was such an invigorating experience and Anuradha Srinivasan and I were overwhelmed to see our kids tackling the activities successfully, albeit with slight trepidation since they were doing these for the first time. We too tried our hand at some of them, to mentally gauge what our kids feel while attempting the activities.
Thanks a lot to Akila and Sriram for a well organised tour and NALS for their hospitality and commitment. Kudos to their respective teams too for taking care of our kids and teaching them to fend for their needs without parental intervention.
Hope to sustain the new friends developed during the tour and also hope to meet all of them soon again.
Amaze and NALS are organising their next tour in mid-April and highly recommend other special needs kids to participate.
