“Samwad shala ” began as the modest venture of the rotary club of lonavla on 20th July 1995 with the primary objective of identifying special children in the area and then imparting skills to them in order to make them self-dependent in future.
Initially ‘ Suhrud Mandala ‘ a well-established school for hearing impared supported financially as well as provided technical support. The first day of the school witnessed the attendance of mere 05 students.
This number rose to 06 at end of the year. Since we were optimistic about the growth of the school, hence with the help of the municipality we rented two rooms and appointed two trained teachers and one assistant in 1988.
We started including children which are mentally challenged and with multiple disabilities.
Eventually rotary club of Lonavla handed over the school management to the “SAMWAD TRUST”. We conduct survey in and around lonavla every year to record the number of children with disability and convince them to send to this special school.
Our vision is to enable each one of those in our care to develop to his/ or her full potential by providing to them all the life experiences and helping them enjoy these within their capacity.
We can work for a community that is under-served faced discrimination,offer educational and residential services to those children with special needs who are from lower income group families.
