Satya Special School was founded in 2003. What triggered the birth of the organization, was a 13 year old girl with disabilities who was found tied and locked up in a badly ventilated room for 8 hours every day. Her mother, a labourer had no means or support to look after the girl leading to this dire situation. Sadly this mirrors the condition of so many children and adults with disabilities across India, who may be the most ignored section of our society today. Fuelled by the desire to ‘reach the unreached’, Satya was set up to serve as an integrated centre for disability rehabilitation in Pondicherry. Apart from providing free and quality rehabilitation services to the socioeconomically weak and the underprivileged, Satya is working tirelessly towards making CWSNs as independent as possible and alleviating the social stigma that affects these individuals and their families.
