About Us

“INSPIRATION”,   a non-profit, registered, welfare organization was born out of an overwhelming feeling of resurrection as it were, from the ashes of disdain, hopelessness and despair, in an apartment of West Delhi. That was way back in 1995.

It all started when a school teacher and social worker was struggling to keep up whatever hopes she had of trying to address the problem of getting her six –year old son, a child with autism who was very hyperactive, admitted to a school that had the atmosphere, machinery and personnel to handle such cases.

When serious search efforts to identify an institute in Delhi with the requisite staff and equipment failed, she contacted The National Institute for the Mentally Handicapped [NIMH], UNICEF’s childhood disability section and discussed with individuals she came across, in regular and special schools in the course of her 2-year rounds. It was then that she started working on the “Prerana Special School project [now known as “Inspiration Centre”] which was eventually launched in her apartment itself, in Vikaspuri, on 30th June,1995.

Her 12-years of teaching experience and the special training she underwent in order to impart proper schooling to the mentally deficient and slow- learners did, of course, help her to address issues relating to such cases who would not be accommodated or admitted in other institutions .Of still greater help ,was her experience as Secretary of the Social Service Club in her school days ,in which capacity she worked along with Mother Teresa’s Missionaries of Charity,in Kolkata.

INSPIRATION  now aims to expand its operations in other allied fields that would obviously cover wider aspects of developmental disabilities , like vocational training ,training of parents and teachers, early intervention, etc…
