Its me, Jyothis. Your very own Jyothis whom you have love and care for all these years. This year I thought of conversing wit you personally through this letter. To begin with, I would love to travel on a nostalgic journey with you and refresh our minds of how it all began.
The Genesis.. Jyothis...
Truly, I was a small and humble beginning in the year 1994 as a project of the Adoor - Mavelikkara Diocese, a training centre for mentally challenged children which looked beyond the limitations of caste and community. By the grace of God, from just 4 children and 1 staff member today. I proudly stand with 120 children and 30 staff member.
About me.. Jyothis..
Coming back to me, Jyothis! we provide residential as wel as non-residential training in accordance with the syllabus of the 'National Institute for Mentality Handicapped' (NIMH), Secundrabad, a central government organization and SCERT State Syllabus.

It is not a disease but a subnormal condition of intellectual and social development.
It is caused by genetic or environmental problems.
The genetic condition is due to either the presence of an extra chromosome in a child's genetic makeup, leading to 'Down Syndrome'.
External factors such as poor health can also lead to mental retardation.
In most cases, mental retardation cannot be cured, but a great deal can be done to help a child's intellectual and social development through appropriate education and training.
I need your continued prayers and underlying support for these special children.
