Brief History of Organization
Founder President Mr. Y.A.K.S.JOSEPH has always got troubled on seeing neglect and pathetic situation of mentally retarded children. He always wished to do something for them so he got trained as special educator. He was working with a institute that provided education to MR. That time he witnessed a child who was MR and this child was denied admission in institute due to lack of finances. Mother pleaded for the admission of her child but school stressed on fee and condition to arrange transport for the child. Mother was very poor and just wanted some relief for her child and had no means to buy that relief. This incident moved his heart and he started to imagine how many such children & their families in Agra might be struggling due to double disempowering condition i.e. disability and poverty. This situation kept him haunted and he tried to locate that child in order to work with him and some change in the life of that child. His first encounter to that child was in month of Nov 2004 and due to continuous haunting by that incident he started an institution in March 2005; where no child would be denied right to development irrespective of his/her economic status.
