Smrithi School for children with special needs
Nupal is also part of an endeavor of eminent individuals from different rungs of society that promotes a school named Smrithi to help children who are mentally and physically challenged under the able guidance of Mr. Krishnakumar as chairman. The goal of the school is to discover the potential of the differently abled children,
nourish their special talents and to pave the way for a fulfilling future. The school understands that the children with special needs require no sympathy but empathy. By accessing each child’s specific needs, we train them to be self-sufficient and confident to face life. The school ultimately transforms these children with special needs to achieve personal, academic and social success.
