We are trying to address the issue of disability especially intellectual disability of children in four districts of Southern Maharashtra, India; Kolhapur, Sangli, Ratnagiri & Sindhudurg. According to 2011 census in Maharashtra out of 29.63 lakhs disabled persons, 8.26lakhs (27.88%) are children. Intellectual disability is one of the disabilities highly prevalent in this area due to genetic,medical and social issues. The disabled people are backward economically & socially.


We run four special schools (two residential & two day schools) and a home for severely disabled bedridden children to cater to the needs of special children below 18 years of age. The children are provided with various services like education based on government syllabus, Activities of Daily Living Skills (ADLs), therapies, sports & games, recreation & leisure, feast & birthday celebrations, cultural programs, annual day gatherings, special vocational training and counselling of parents.

Long-Term Impact

The project will educate 250 special children to improve their understanding/comprehension; to communicate his/her daily needs; to enable in doing daily activities understanding routine instructions; to remember things or to solve problems as compared to his/her own age group. It is a gradual process to enable the intellectually disabled children towards self-empowerment and acceptance in the community.
