About The Centre : 

Vidya Mahamandal institute has always believed in versatile growth of students and non-conventional teaching methods. It was felt that, the institute should take up the subject of educational development and research in the areas of physically challenged student, especially the deaf and dumb. With this in mind on 2nd July 1990, the institute started its center for education, development and research for deaf and dumb students.

Knowledge is power and should be accessible to all. Those of us Possessing perfect vision, hearing.  Speech, and functional limbs, take this privilege for granted. Not everyone is as fortunate.  Education of specially challenged children is a necessity and not an option.  For years now, “Mukbadhir Shikshan Sanshodhan Va Vikas Kendra” has been working with such children, helping them overcome difficulties, and training them to be independent and lead self-sufficient life.

The organization is striving to provide Government recognized vocational training certification courses to specially challenged children. Along with this, it provides traditional education to qualify them for minimum educational criteria required to raise funds.  At present the organization takes care of over 40 such deaf-dumb students, 22 of which are undergoing training in Home Appliances Repairing / Electrical. The rest are being trained in DTP (Computers). Mastering these skills will allow them to earn their livelihood and tend for themselves.

A little support from you can help these children and change their lives forever.  We urge you to donate generously to this noble cause.  Your charity can enable a specially challenged child live with respect in mainstream society, and for this you will have his everlasting gratitude, as well as ours.
