There are over 30 million (3%) mentally retarded children in India, of whom hardly a fringe attend special schools or get vocational training. For vast majority there is no help because of the lack of resources.
The “Delhi Society for the Welfare of Mentally Retarded Children” was founded in 1964 to organize the efforts of parents, doctors, social workers and well-wishers for providing care, education, training and rehabilitation facilities for the mentally retarded. It has set up a Day School, Diagnostic and Child Guidance Clinic, Vocational Training Centre and Transport Service at OKHLA CENTRE, Okhla Marg, New Delhi. The cost of supporting the care for one child is $150 per year.
