Started in the 'Land of Latex, Letters and Lakes' in June 2002, this school is the first project of GREENLIFE CHARITABLE TRUST (Regd.) Kottayam. The trust runs two schools for children with disabilities at Kottayam and Pala.

There are very few professional centres or special Institutions in our state/area to support and care for this population in a synchronised manner. At Jyothis School for Children with Challenges, we have been making a striking difference to the lives of hundreds of children and their families.


  • Many babies with disabilities have improved drastically across motor milestones - crawlers to walkers.
  • Through advised orthopedic surgery, more than 50children who were in a locked-in condition have improved motor independence.
  • More than two dozen children have graduated and been integrated from special schools to mainstream schools
  • Several children with malnutrition have grown into healthy children through our special nutrition programmes.
  • 15 children participated in disability in disguise events and bagged medals.
  • Empowered five mothers through professional training and transformed them as teachers and therapists
  • Lobbying for inclusive education as it helps children with additional learning needs to explore their surroundings in the same way non-disabled children can
  • Special dental health care programme to ensure children with developmental disabilities overcome oro-motor issues and to bite and chew food without pain and intolerance

What makes Jyothis unique?

At Jyothis, we focus on holistic intervention across all development domains. We see the individual as a whole and through the lens of positive possibilities for the future. We ensure that fun, joy, play and happiness is the core of our curriculum.

We welcome individuals with disabilities and their families into our joy filled community. We always have an open ear and heart to listen to difficulties and issues shared by families and together, find solutions and answers. We build a circle of support for parents where they can seek, share and gain guidance from each other and understand that they aren’t alone in this race.
