NGO Activities : Our purpose is to work with families by providing a nurturing and learning environment for the children who would benefit from our three schools and 15l community –based rehabilitation services. The staffs are REAL people who try to relate family with placement. Individuals with intellectual disabilities often struggle for visibility and a voice within their communities. Manovikas helps empower them to organize, address their common challenges and advocate for the changes they need to gain access to education, services and jobs. They have survived to have a better place for study — but life in the aftermath has often been nightmarish, perhaps due to the neglect of the society on there special needs and equal rights. You can help them heal their emotional wounds. Manovikas sprouted on a serene lake village in 1994 with 15 children, from native fisher folk. The school now has 132 regular students, and another 38 children are offered home-based individual services. It has in fifteen years blossomed into one of India’s best special schools. With fifty-odd staff and teacher trainees, we have achieved excellence in academics, home placement and empowerment. All services to the children are totally free. Every child is a precious jewel for us, taken care individually, with a vision to place them as esteemed citizens in the larger society. In fact, the school has an invisible tie up with a benevolent global community, who from somewhere in the earth sponsor food, study materials or some gifts. Children between the age 3 & 18 are admitted and they are divided in to 6 groups - Care Group, Pre primary, Primary, Secondary, Pre Vocational and Vocational. Each class has 6 to 8 children, trained by a teacher having Diploma in Mental Retardation or Diploma in Community Based Rehabilitation and an Asst. teacher.
