KIRAN’s Vision is to be a Resource Centre that empowers differently able children and young people, in partnership with their parents, by providing a quality service to them without discrimination of cast, religion or financial circumstance.
In 1990, after living already almost 20 years in India, doing leprosy work Sangeeta J.K. realized, that there are huge numbers of children affected by polio paralysis, who have no education and no physical rehabilitation. She then asked friends abroad and local people for support and started in a non-formal way the service which was in 1994 registered as KIRAN Society with a need-based, holistic and inclusive approach.
Born in 1946, Sangeeta lives since 1972 in India with the sole objective to serve the poor and needy. At first she was a member of an international Christian ashram, but when she saw the need of an intensive service to disabled children, she left the ashram and is since then fully given to lead ahead the KIRAN Society.

Deepu came to us as a 4 year old, abandoned child who was paralysed through polio.; her parents had actually just left her at the railway station We in KIRAN took her in as our only abandoned child and gave her education and physiotherapy, and above all loving care through a Hostel Didi. Throughout her life in education unit she improved a lot. Only when she became a teenager she started to be very depressed, because understanding the terrible and sad fact that her parents had just abandoned her. With much patience and understanding the teachers and caretakers managed to always encourage her and helped her thus to accept finally her challenging life situation: KIRAN was after all now her loving and supportive family. At present Deepu is doing her 12th class studies under the NIOS educational program. Although quite intelligent, due to the fact of being bound to a wheelchair she could not be admitted to a school outside the KIRAN Village. She is good in English and computer, and wishes to later on do further studies in these two subjects. But she also very much loves small children, and therefore she helps whenever possible in our hostel or in the Nursery class. We are confident that she will be able to become a happy person who can live with confidence and have the possibility to earn her living.
 Santosh’s Beautiful Story Of Sharing
Santosh comes form a poor family in a village north of Varanasi District. He came to the KIRAN Hostel at the age of about 8 years and was paralysed in both legs, due to Post polio Paralysis. His family was very poor and the father had abandoned them. We gave Santosh physiotherapy, provided him with calipers and he followed formal education up to the 5th class. During that time he stayed in our hostel, and was a very happy and eager student. After leaving KIRAN he studied in a school near to his village, but only up to 8th class since he wanted to do something for helping his mother and sister. With a small loan from KIRAN he could start a little business in the village. Little by little his situation improved and he could even purchase a tractor. Then his dream to help other poor children with education became a reality: with his own efforts he started a small village school where today 50 poor children are receiving education. He also got married and has one girl child. Santosh says that he wants to share with other poor children all what he himself had received in KIRAN: education and learning the values for a happy life.
Mr. Ajeet suffers from Cerebral Palsy and has a lot of spasticity in all his limbs. Though he was trying his best to manage his life, carrying out daily activities like bathing and using the washroom by himself turned out to be extremely difficult. When his father passed away after suffering from severe illness, the family was left with no regular source of income. We identified him through our door to door survey program. He had severe deformities at different joints of his limbs- Both his legs were in the scissoring position, because of which he was unable to use the toilet as well. We also discovered that he was suffering from epilepsy, which his mother was completely unaware of. Now, he is able to move here and there with the help of his wheelchair. He is looking after his buffaloes, which are the only source of his income. He got a house with an attached toilet through the Indira Awas Yojana, and is now actively involved in community initiatives. We started our rehabilitation process after a detailed assessment. Our therapists gave him regular therapy to release spasticity. We also encouraged and taught his mother basic therapy that she could use at home. Our neurologist started giving him medicines to control his epilepsy and spasticity. After three years, he is now finally free from epilepsy.
