Introduction


MR. & MRS. SHAZAD ALI heads of a courageous family, whose four out of five children have gone blind due to a mysterious in born eye disorder. The heart-rending tale of one Mr. Shahzad Ali makes life meaningless for the entire family whose four children have gradually lost sight leading to complete blindness due to innate genetic ophthalmic disorder called retinitis pegmentosa.


He observed this disability not only in his kids but also other kids as well which forced him to think about establishing an organization for the betterment and welfare of disabled children especially the blind children. The establishment of Shahzad Khan Society is to fulfill this mission. But as Mr. Shahzad Khan established the society he came to know about the suffering of not only kids but also adults and women due to different types of disabilities. We have been providing thousands of children in our community with free access to hygienic water, educational amenities, scholarships and clothing. With trusted support of humanity lovers, we have been able to extend our services of dowry provision to orphans, provide residential care and monthly food packages to widows and old age citizens. This all has been made possible with the help of government, private NGO’s and our respected donors.

To plan, develop, design and implement training and support along with the provision and facilitation of services such as financial, residential health care, skill development and social aid to people with disabilities. Shahzad khan society was established in view of improving the conditions of the destitute members of the society. Various projects have been initiated and in progress in this regard which are,

Aims & Objectives



Our Core Objective


Shahzad Khan Society is responsible for supporting individuals (Child’s, Men & Women) living with disability to fully participate and be engaged in all aspects of their life both in home and their chosen community. Promote and provide training, financial, residential health care, skill development, social aid and support. Assist individuals to be as independent as possible, by providing high quality supports and ensuring people with disabilities have maximum control over their own lives. Support provided includes areas of assisting people with all aspects of daily living, community inclusion and other social and physical requirements.








Disability Equality Training




Disability Equality Training explores the concept of people being disabled by society’s barriers and attitudes, highlighting the role of the organization/society in the removal of those barriers and in the changing of attitudes. The training includes an element of awareness, customer care; etiquette and appropriate language for instance. The training will always be provided by a person with personal experience of disability. Shahzad Khan Society has been recognized in this field for a long time and efficiently providing its expertise.








Women Empowerment




Shahzad Khan Society always gives prime importance to the empowerment of women. Women with disabilities are amongst the most marginalized and disadvantaged people in the world. The intersection of gender inequality and disability presents a situation of multiple levels of discrimination. They are less likely to be educated, employed and well-housed than almost any other population group. Our Mission is to lead the way for women with disabilities at grass root level and improve their choices by being a voice, building partnerships, providing information and educating the community.








Responsiveness & Organisation




Shahzad Khan Society believes that only Community mobilization can be a way forward to achieve capacity building process where individuals, groups, or organizations plan, carry out and evaluate activities on a participatory and sustained basis to improve lives of persons with disabilities. As this mobilization fosters strong relationships between local governments, businesses and community members.








Education for Disables




Shahzad Khan Society Support and Connect the community and government educational resources to disable children and their parents. Many parents often unaware of how to access educational services appropriate to the needs of their child with disability, particularly in early intervention and early childhood education. Older students find it difficult to obtain sufficient information about vocational education, pre-employment training and support services, or adult and community education.








Leisure Activities




Sports are healthy activities that boost the moral and confidence of Persons with disabilities by bringing them in mainstream. Participation and organization of such events enhances social inclusion, talent, capabilities and confidence. Shahzad Khan Society is organizing Wheelchair cricket tournament for not only men with disabilities but also for women with disabilities from many years.








Hand Control Equipment




An automobile adapted for ease of use by people with disabilities. Today automobiles can be adapted for a range of physical disabilities. For example; Foot pedals can be raised, or replaced with hand-controlled devices. Automotive adaptive hand controls also make it possible to adjust acceleration as well braking. We at Shahzad Khan Society offer you all this services which is very successful and continues to broaden opportunities for people with disabilities to drive vehicles with hand controls and adaptive automotive products and devices.








Capacity Development

Promote and provide training, financial, residential health care, skill development, social aid and support. Assist individuals to be as independent as possible, by providing high quality supports and ensuring people with disabilities have maximum control over their own lives. Support provided includes areas of assisting people with all aspects of daily living, community inclusion and other social and physical requirements.








Counselling & Motivation




Inadequate infrastructure is a major cause for ill health and disabling conditions. Inaccessible environments, technology, transport, products and services restrict the equal participation of Person with Disabilities to economic and social activities by limitation their functional capacity. Shahzad Khan Society provides expert opinion and measures to make any such environment assessable. For example Ramping, toilets for physically impaired Person with Disabilities and other measures according to the requirements of any particular disabilities.
