Nagaland News

Dimapur, December 2 : Tabitha Enabling Academy (TEA), Kohima, held its annual thanksgiving day today with Kudecho Khamo, Advisor to CAWD & Taxes as the special guest.
According to a press release, Khamo said the academy for differently-abled and special needs children holds immense personal significance for him. He appealed to the society not to view special needs children as a curse or burden, but ‘a divine will of God’ towards whom everyone is obligated to love and care.
Adding that the benchmark of progressive civilisation does not reflect from the level of income or facilities enjoyed by them but measured by how the people treat and support people with special needs.
“Each one of us is created according to the divine plan of God with a purpose. With proper love and care, individuals with special needs can excel in various ways”, he said.
With the special school that started with 7 students and 3 staff members, he noted that it has now grown to accommodate 35 students and employing 15 staff.
He expressed gratitude to Administrators Vekütilu Ngone and Asanuo Thong for their efforts and sacrifices in managing the academy.
He acknowledged the Government of Nagaland led by Chief Minister Neiphiu Rio for giving due attention and supporting to the special need children while also appreciating the Department of Social Welfare headed by Tosheli Zhimomi, and Diethono Nakhro, Chairperson of the Disability Commission.
It may be mentioned, the academy is located at Chakhesang Baptist Church, Kitsubozou, an exclusive school emphasising on reciprocal learning, where both the normal and the special needs children can learn together, live together, love and laugh together.
