Helping Children with Disabilities
To Be Wonder of Abilities
The word KIRAN means ray of light and KIRAN society strives to be just that in the lives of children with different abilities and of marginalized communities.
Inspired by an established rehabilitation center in South India, and understanding the need for such a service in Varanasi, a small group of people came together in 1990 to realize their dream: to start an outreach service for children and youngsters with different abilities in Uttar Pradesh. The founder and current executive director, Sangeeta JK, was the spearhead of this group.
In 1994, KIRAN Society was registered under the Societies Registration Act. As the small rooms of the ashram in Nagwa were becoming too cramped and insufficient, planning began for the KIRAN Village. In 1998, the KIRAN Village was born and established in the village of Madhopur, where KIRAN Society found its new home.
KIRAN Foundation, Switzerland was brought to life in the year 2003. Through the Foundation KIRAN has been able to find donors and supporters to provide many of the necessities to run the KIRAN Village and the KIRAN Society successfully in all of its endeavors.
