"Learning humility, purity and simple-living from those who don't take too much from the earth...
Targetting the problems of hunger, disease and oppression that sadden their lives...
Inspiring in each other trust, confidence and support for one another..."

This project is targeted at providing early detection and early intervention to developmentally challenged children from 0-12 years of age. The initial child developmental center was started in 2009 targeting the urban slums with a 25 km radius around the center of Kolkatta. They have expanded operations to the rural district of Puruhlia as of now.
They screen children in the targeted areas using trained workers , examine and diagnose them using valid objective measures and rating systems, plan treatments and in addition counsel the parents and make them an integral part of the treatment. Their interventions involve a multi-pronged approach with
