The Success Story of Parvathi

Parvathi  is  18 year old,  she is Mentally Challenged with speech problem.   She came to our Institution at the age of  12 years.  She come from very poor family and she was neglected by her parents.  Therefore the Divine Light admit Parvathi to our center after medical  intervention, we began her training in : self-help care, Social skills, House hold activities, Tailoring, craft and music with dance.   She is slowly gaining confidence & benefiting from our training .  We hope that with this training she could stand on her feet and lead a dignified life in the society along with her parents.
