To see that every individual with Intellectual Disability has access to state of art therapy, education and training to develop vocational skills thus equipping them to be self-sufficient individuals in Society.
In 1944 it started with a simple dream – that of a parent’s – Mr & Mrs Hormusjee Vakeel’s dream to provide their child Dina who was born with Down’s syndrome a place to thrive and be happy in, as no such establishment existed to serve the needs of special children at that time. It started from their home serving a few children to today a two-acre campus in Sewri – Mumbai. Today, we are one of the oldest and largest not for profit institutes in India serving children and adults with intellectual disability.
Archana Chandra – our CEO has previously worked in various capacities- from in Marketing, Public Relations, and Human Resource Development at The Akanksha Foundation, to Informix (a division of IBM), and Bennett & Coleman. Apart from her full time role at Jai Vakeel, she is also on the Board of SRCC which is building the largest Children's Pediatric Hospital in the country, and is on advisory board of Annamrita , and The Antarang Foundation.

 Success Story of a Student from our Special School in Talegaon
Sanskar Mali was a profoundly challenged child unable to stand without support, no speech, unable to hold objects in hand and fully dependent for his activities of daily life. He was brought to Jai Vakeel School- rural branch for assessment and intervention and was admitted in the school in June 2013. He was admitted for physiotherapy and oromotor stimulation exercises. Parents were given home bound program to follow up. He was admitted in special class as he is profoundly challenged. Today Sanskar is able to walk 4-5 steps independently. His drooling has reasonably reduced. He is able to sit for 2 hours and attend the classroom session.
