The vision of Association for the Mentally Challenged is to establish a centre of excellence in the field of mental retardation by providing knowledge based services. They do it through a child guidance clinic, special school, vocational training centre, day care centre, sheltered workshop and research centre.
The organisation also aims to establish services for mentally challenged people of our society who are coming from poor families so that quality of life of these people is improved.
AMC is dedicated to the well being of intellectually challenged children, adults and their parents. Over the years, with the committed efforts of volunteers, staff, parents and society, they have built a robust and purposeful organisation focusing on the integrated well being of these challenged people. There have been many struggles encountered to be sure; but the cause has always triumphed.
Their endeavor is to create an atmosphere of harmony, learning and constructive participation and they dedicate their efforts constantly to achieve this goal.
