Previously we called this project 'the education centre for physical disabled children'. But after taking a deep revision of the character of the project, we came to a new project name: "REadycation". That's why we want to explain you the origin of this word and as well the motto of LombokCare.
Rehabilitation + Education = REadycation
In other words, by giving children with a physical disability the opportunity to work on their physical as wel educational development, we create a bigger chance for these children to become "REady" to fully and actively participate in the society.
Until now LombokCare is the first and only organization in Lombok who is fully committed to the rights of this specific target group. Therefor it is even more challenging because it seems to appeal in Lombok there's still very little knowledge available on how to deal with such physical disabilities.
At the beginning of January we can proudly announce that we've already reached more than 140 children, of which 85 children actively come to LombokCare twice or three times a week and the rest of the children who receive help through our Community Based Rehabilitation Programs. Although still a lot of disabled children in Lombok need help, fighting for their rights. Their right to access health care, general accessibilities, participation in education and their right to be treated the same like everyone else!
