Why Community Participation?
Involvement in community activities in non-segregated spaces would help people to learn to learn new skills or brush-up their hobbies. It also helps people to build and improve their confidence. Community participation paves the way for self-development and contribution. The sense of contributing, for instance, participation in a project which contributes to the society can give you a sense of pleasure and meaningfulness. See the benefits of community participation below:
- Promotes sense of belongingness.

- Increases social networks.

How does community participation makes a difference in our Participants’ lives at The Inclusion Centre?
Being a part of the social, economic, and cultural life of the community makes a difference in everyone’s life. We have found community participation as a vital element in supporting our people with special needs and are proud to embrace inclusion in all our programs for our participants. Our activities and projects are developed for our participants to involve and contribute to the social life to the extent of their ability as well as to pursue their own goals.
