The teachers and staff at Sneha Kiran are committed to creating the best learning and rehabilitative environment for the children and their families. The dedication and joy that the teachers bring to work with them is reflected in the faces of the children who attend school there and foster a happy and supportive community.

I really enjoyed my time at Sneha Kiran and felt inspired and amazed by the passion and creativity of staff and students. I hope to show the same passion in my work in the UK. The children are incredible and their constant smiles are a reminder to stay positive no matter what.

Volunteering at Sneha Kiran was truly one of the best experiences of my life. I gained new insights and outlooks through relationships that I formed with the passionate faculty at Sneha Kiran, and the brilliant and inspiring students that attend the school. The opportunity to assist as a volunteer educator at Sneha Kiran was life changing as I emerged myself into a new and beautiful culture, while at the same time, I was confronted with the harsh realities faced by children with cerebral palsy and other disabilities in India. However, my time spent at Sneha Kiran assured me that despite the adversity those with disabilities in India face, there is so much love and support to be given and shared by those who dedicate their lives to bettering the lives of others. Every day I was surrounded by the infinite love of the Sneha Kiran community, and I was inspired to work to the best of my ability to make a difference. I am grateful for having spent time at Sneha Kiran, and I can't wait to see how the organization continues to grow in order to extraordinarily make a positive impact within India.

Caring for children with disability is a challenge which gets multiplied when dealing with complex disabilities such as autism, cerebral palsy, Down's Syndrome and the like. The caregivers need to possess the requisite occupational skills and at the same time have immense reserves of compassion, patience and inner strength. Sneha Kiran is one of the very few NGOs I have come across in my experience which has these qualities in abundance in its people. A beautiful centre, airy and spacious, and the caring and dedicated staff provides the right space for the children. I am happy and privileged to be associated with them over the years and only wish the institution more and more strength to continue the excellent work it has been doing.
