Ashraya is a special school for mentally challenged children who have associated disabilities. We have children in the age group of 4 to 18 years.

Our main focus is on the disabled children from the lower socio economic group. We also want to empower people with disabilities to become active contributors in the society.


Host Family


At Ashraya Centre of Learning, we work with special, differently-able children, particularly from an underprivileged background. These children are given not just an education, but life skills. Extensive therapy and training is invested into Ashraya's students at our school premises specially designed to cater to these children's needs. Intended to house 25 students, Ashraya's premises is bursting at the seams with 36 children at present. We have also had to turn away scores of disappointed parents owing to the lack of space. We are, however, taking on the challenge of expanding our premises to increase our capacity to house 60 students. We have seen so much joy as a result of our efforts so far. But we dream bigger dreams.
