Disabled Friendly Facilities

Education for Specially Abled/Divyangjan in Williamnagar Govt. College

  • .

The Right to Education is a fundamental right. Each one of us irrespective of background and abilities have the right to education. Due to technological advancements, the education sector in recent years has seen massive changes that contribute to the attainment of equal educational opportunities for all categories of learners including Divyangjan/Persons With Disabilities (PWD). Government and Non-Government Organizations (NGO) have been increasingly more focused on providing adequate facilities to enable PWD students so that they can access public services and become skilled and reliable to contribute to the nation building process. There have been a number of legislations to protect the rights and welfare of the PWD population.

The college has been planning to add all possible equipment and facilities in coming years to enable students with special needs access educational services along with their general classmates with government funding.

Here are links to the portals of State Commissioner of Disabilities, Government of Meghalaya; National Portal of the Ministry of Social Justice & Empowerment (Divyangjan), Government of India, and World agencies in which learners with different types of special needs can see various information, data and facilities meant for them.
