KIRAN is an NGO which provides educational, vocational training and rehabilitation to underprivileged children from very poor families. It is situated in the outskirts of Varanasi city in Uttar Pradesh. The KIRAN education department has 264 students at present - 71 children with special needs in the Special Education Unit, and 193 children in the Integrated Primary Education Section. The integrated primary school has classes from nursery up to class 8 with equal ratio of boys and girls. The school has both able-bodied children and others who have an impairment (such as post-Polio-paralysis, Rickets, hearing and speech impairment or even Cerebral Palsy). All these children can still follow the normal curriculum (KIRAN is registered under the Uttar Pradesh board). All the teachers in the school are trained and well-experienced in handling these children. The integration of students with and without disability is KIRAN's strength and beauty, since it gives an opportunity to all students to appreciate and help each other. In addition, physiotherapy is offered to children who have a physical disability. A special educator is also available to help slow-learning children. This donation option will help sponsor the education cost of one poor child in this school for one month.
