Story

Chiranthana helps children and youth with special-needs develop life skills and artistry.  Operating as a non-profit, Chiranthana opens up a whole new world for these children through a wide array of programs that make a significant difference in their lives.  

Our time-tested and bespoke methodologies and techniques are typically unavailable in traditional schooling programs. Learning is made enjoyable for children who are coping with autism, down syndrome, and other inherited or acquired disabilities beyond their control. Chiranthana's aim is to help these children and youth realize their strengths and channel their dormant abilities toward acquiring new skills that make them independent and confident contributors to the society.
