District Resource Centre

District Resource Centre

ORC is planning to set-up a Resource Centre in each district (DRC), which will take on a coordination and facilitating role for ORC activities at the district level. It will facilitate counseling, expert consultation, mentor-mentee interface, and skill acquisition programs. These Centres will provide facilities and appropriate and sufficient space for mentor-mentee or mentor-parents interface, counselling, expert consultation (medical or other special attention), relevant training, digital conference hall, a visitor's room, a reference library (including electronic media) as well as office space for ORC project administration. DRC will become a knowledge hub for all families with children who fall under the ORC categories. It will be responsible for undertaking the resource mapping, in consultation with the schools. It must initiate and establish systems for tele-facility, so that families or teachers may call and discuss problems. Its role will also include incentivizing all mentors and monitoring their performance.
