KIRAN literally means 'ray of light'. It is a centre for differently-abled children and youngsters. Founded in September 1990 by a small group of people from various social, cultural and religious backgrounds, it has continued to work based on the idea of togetherness, enriching everyone's talents and abilities.

In 1998 KIRAN Centre shifted from the city Varanasi to Madhopur, a village near the famous Sultankeshwar Temple located about 12 kms south of B.H.U. (Benares Hindu University). Today the KIRAN Centre functions as a small village where children and youngster with different abilities receive education, skills and vocational training and physical rehabilitation.

Most of the children and youngsters we work with are suffering from the consequences of polio, cerebral palsy, rickets or hearing impairments. They have the potential to lead normal lives, if only we can reach them somehow. Unfortunately many such children suffer the fate of being hidden and kept at their homes and getting no access to education or rehabilitation.

In this case KIRAN gives chances, helps and supports these children, youngsters and their families in various ways. At KIRAN we believe that 'family involvement' is an essential part of the recovery process. We remain in constant touch with the children's and youngster's families, discussing medical conditions, educational issues, as well as providing them with counselling and support.
