Out of the 500,000 visually special needs persons in India in 1897, a blind Pachani was led to Pandita Ramabai Mukti Mission by her 5 year old sister with other famine victims from central India. The Little sister died after a few months and Pachani felt her loss keenly. Ms. Abrams started teaching Pachani and another special need child like her the Hindi characters using the Moon System. Thus, started the journey of visually special needs home and school of Mukti.
Our special needs section is exactly SPECIAL!
In 2013 Pandita Ramabai Mukti Mission opened a new Special Needs School building. This school is near other schools on the Mukti Campus, making students feel apart of the education area and enables children to participate with others. Children enjoy going to their special school and are learning various skills to become independent in the future.
There is always a need for more trained workers to be a pat of the Special Needs section within Mukti.
If you feel encouraged to serve, enable and build women and children with special needs you are always welcome to volunteer or work at Panditta Ramabai Mukti Mission.
