Gift Hope is all about children with cerebral palsy.
Cerebral Palsy is the most common motor disability in children. This condition affects the part of the brain that directs muscle movement.
In some babies, this part hasn’t developed normally while they are still growing in the womb. In others, it is because of an injury to the brain tissues either before, during, or after birth. As a result, the nerve signals between the brain and the muscles are disrupted, leading to problems with movement, posture and coordination as the child grows up.
Gift Hope wants to ensure very early intervention in the lives of these children so that they find help to manage their condition and live life to the best they can.
We want to create awareness so that the parents learn of the services available and the public build a more inclusive society for these children.

But her family is confident that she will become a teacher someday. She shows all the signs. She loves stationery. She loves scribbling letters. She loves to wear her sister’s glasses and peeping into her sister’s schoolbooks to check her work.
