about Menhandy

In Sri Lanka there are many children, young adults, elderly people who are disabled, physically and mentally. Under mental disability there are people who suffers with Autism, Hyperactiveness, Downsyndrome, Epilepsy, Cerebral Palsy and other conditions associated with intellectual impairment. We believe in the rights of all children and young people, to education and to make learning accessible to children/youth with Autism, Hyperactiveness, Downsyndrome, Epilepsy, Cerebral Palsy, and other conditions associated with intellectual impairment. We also would like to train the parents of these children to handle them at home.

There is a need for school / training institute in Sri Lanka especially for children who suffers with Autism, Hyperactiveness, Downsyndrome, Cerebal Palsy, Epilepsy etc. Keeping this in mind, we thought of starting a School for the children with special needs. For this purpose, we got the approval as a local Social body under the style of “MENHANDY” and our Registration Number is GA 2031. “MENHANDY” is a Non Profit Organization and will not be focusing on making profit but serve the community specially children with special needs.

The Training Institute will aim at educating students with disabilities, to become independent functioning human beings, by working on their disabilities both academically and socially, so that they will be able to make a successful transition from school to community life.
