Subhiksha Voluntary Organization is a registered non government organization founded on 8th October 2009 by a group of trained and qualified professional Social workers to help and support differently abled children of all ages and disabilities including Autism, Mental Retardation, Cerebral Palsy, Hearing Imparied and multiple disabilities. We are located in Secunderabad, Telangana, India and operational in slums of Hyderabad and Secunderabad Slums.

Unlike in school education the teacher-student ratio is 1: 8 and focus is on individual attention. The Special Children at Subhiksha are given various therapies to help them overcome the challenges they face. These include Physiotherapy, Occupational Therapy with multi-sensory integration, Hearing and Speech Therapy, Psychiatry and Counseling, Performing and Expressive Arts and Sports.

In order to provide an inclusive platform for education Subhiksha has designed a program including special adaptations to the content for children with special needs. They aim to provide a holistic accessible platform for children with special needs. After proper assessment and evaluation the students who are found to be educable /academically capable of pursuing education are further trained to pursue further education. 

Successful candidates are given a joint certificate from Subhiksha School and NATIONAL INSTITUTE OF OPEN SCHOOLING. As per the capacity and requirement of the child, he/she is allowed to prepare for Nios Secondary on completion of Level A, B and C. Students are prepared for the Board Exams through Individualised Education Programme and Remedial Sessions.

Our mission is to make a difference in the world of disability. We believe in human potential and its expression. Our emphasis is on education and its accessibility, regardless of caste, creed, race, religion and ethnicity. We educate and empower children with special needs to lead dignified, successful lives in the mainstream society.

  • We provide education and healthcare to vulnerable children such as street children and children engaged in begging.
  • We provide them a caring and friendly environment and meet their basic needs like food, clothing 
  • We train adolescents in vocational skills that will give them a decent means of livelihood.
  • We strive to protect child rights and strongly advocate the same everywhere that we work.


Every child must get an equitable chance at good quality education. We envision a society where all children are provided equal opportunities for growth, enjoy their childhood and lead a dignified life free from exploitation.


We provide education to children with disabilities and children from marginalized communities through formal schooling with a barrier free environment. 

We work with Special Children, adolescents and grownups with special conditions such as

  • Cerebral Palsy
  • Mental Retardation
  • Slow Learners
  • Autism
  • DownSyndrome 
  • Hearing Impaired 
  • Physically Challenged 

Our Work focuses on-

  • Supporting the families of Special Children by enrolling them in Open Basic Education of National Institute of Open Schooling.
  • Provide Continuum of care to these children on a long term basis.
  • Help the children and adolescents to become more self reliant through Life Skills Building and Therapeutic interventions.


Subhiksha was registered as a voluntary organisation on 8th October 2009. We started out with little more than our genuine desire and passion to change little children's lives. To give an equal chance for all the children around us to have a good future. To help them go to school, eat properly, grow well and stay healthy. To make them laugh, play and have fun. To help them live their childhood and develop into productive citizens. 

We started working with government schools in some localities of Hyderabad and Secunderabad. With the support of individual donors and corporate employees, we provided basic amenities and infrastructure like toilets, sports material, learning and teaching material, radio and TV sets, etc.  

There were many children in the slums who had never enrolled in a school or dropped out. They were sent for begging and rag picking to supplement the family income. They never got an opportunity to get educated or learn skills that could lead them to a better future. We started a school for these children and convinced a few of them to attend. Siblings and friends of the few children joined and our school grew to its current strength.
