  • To work towards creating a self sustaining environment for children with special needs through the development of sustainable educational institutions with the ultimate goal of mainstreaming them to the best of their individual abilities

  • To be the umbrella organization for raising funds

  • To be deployed towards organizations working for children with special needs

  • To continuously import the best research, knowledge and practices regarding these conditions from around the world, and promote the widespread dispersion of these expertise across the country

  • To help establish, promote and manage special needs classrooms across as many schools as possible

  • To annually sponsor at least two individuals for further training in the area of child development in Indian or overseas institutions
