Sonal Smriti - Center for Special Children

Support Us


Inspired by the work culture of Mother Teresa, Smt. Krishna Kumar always believes that Service to the disabled is the Service to God. With the two handicapped daughters of her own, she is sensitized to the need of the handicapped.  She initiated a project Sonal Smriti -  Center for Special children  at Greenfield Colony, Faridabad (Haryana) exclusively from her own resources to cater the needs of the children from Faridabad, Haryana. The project is designed to evolve certain specific programmes to make the persons with disability self sufficient, expressive, confident and more academically wherever possible. Facilities like special education, physio therapy,  occupational therapy, speech therapy, behaviour modifications, counseling to the children and the parents, medical services etc. are made  available to the children with disability

Her motivation and passion in the field of disability rights does not limit itself to work with mentally or physically disabled persons. She acts as a crucial team member responsible for developing and promoting all the areas that require immediate attention.

She along with her husband Mr. Sushil Kumar have been  the source and inspiration behind many other excellent organisations working for the persons with disability. They were  instrumental in opening a center  for disabled children — Udaan (flight). The center  which had their two daughters in the beginning is having 52 special children today. She is a trustee-member of Udaan , Foundation for Spastic and Mentally Handicapped Persons.     Mrs. Kumar was also associated with the various activities of AADI formerly known as Spastics Society of Northern India and supported the development of Roshni – a project sponsored by Rama Krishna Ashram in Gwalior. 

Mrs. Krishna Kumar was nominated for the 1000 Women for the Noble Peace Prize 2005 for her work for the children with mental disabilities . Her name was officially handed to the Nobel Prize Committee in Oslo. As an Hon’ble member of  South Asian Human Rights (SAHR), she represents  for the right of the persons with disability.
