Most of the students had little special education or even not at all. So they are taught in self-care, reading/writing, speaking, simple mathematics, time/color/shapes/money concept and other necessary functional skills for their independent life.

  To reach more mentally challenged the center also offers CBR (community based rehabilitation.) One specialized staff members gives training at the homes of the students and gives counseling to parents.  

The products are for sale, interested to buy them!? The best way to help the center. Because now the income does not cover the expenditure.

The parents contribute for their children's training but because most of them come from poor family, it covers the transport only.

The goal is to move one day to a bigger building, so we are able to train more students

So more support is necessary...Please help them.
