What Our Partners Say

…you can see the impact of your training…

on almost 50 of our staff members who cater to on the average 500 children who seek intervention at New Horizons every month. We are grateful to you for this support for the last 10 years. We request you to guide us and suggest the further course of action so that we could empower more people at New Horizons and across India to work with children with special needs.

Thank you…

the discussions (have) helped me to improve my knowledge … and I’ve shared my learning with other staff …the most important learning was that we need to understand the problem better…
