Ritham Special School was started in 2004 to cater to the needs of special children in and around Rajapalayam, Tamilnadu.
A door-to-door survey conducted by Ritham revealed that there are plenty of mentally challenged/Cerebral Palsy children in their operating area. Most of these children’s parents' are daily wage earners, so owning a vehicle is out of the question. It is difficult for special children to commute by public transport too. Hence, Ritham sends their school van to collect these students on a daily basis. While they purchased the van through a loan from the bank, donations would help in running the same. This includes the cost of diesel, the driver’s salary, road tax, insurance and maintenance charges.
