Adhaar center was born in November 2006, in 2nd floor of one of the factory halls owned by Sevak Maddi Reddy. Over the next 4 years the trust progressively built teachers and infrastructure. Currently the center operates out of a plot owned and operated by the VFEEL Trust.
At present there are around 25 students who are learning under the loving guidance of the Special teachers of Adhaar School. The staff comprises of:
To begin with there were only seven students and the parents who approached us for admission literally cried and said “we have lost all hopes in life as these children are a burden to us!” We were deeply touched by the plight of these parents and aspired to bring a smile on the face of these parents. Thus we came up with vision of “training these special people and equip them with enough skills to carry out means of employment and grow into interdependent individuals”.
To fulfill our vision we took up the mission of training these special people in ADLs like: eating, bathing, dressing, cleaning and so on. Once these children learn these preliminary skills they are put on vocational training in Cocoon craft and Fine arts. We have planned to diversify the vocational training by introducing additional development programs like carpentry to begin with.
