The PBS Model

PBS is non-profit. Its entire focus is on the Learning Disabled trainees at the centre (presently there are 24 of them). It is managed by a management team that draws no salaries nor allowances. It has 2 paid staff who ensure the centre is well run and the trainees are well cared. Supporting them is a team of volunteers who contribute time and skills.

The PBS centre life is modeled after affirmation of positive outlook as long as there is a glimmer of hope to succeed. We shower love and patience because we believe these stimulate and encourage the trainees to open up and pick up skills. At the same time we teach them to be responsible for their actions. We prepare them to face a life of independence.

At PBS we humanise the trainees.
