Welcome to our site
 
 

My mind isn’t blank,
But my mind is a whirl.
My words are, all jumbled.
My speech, merely mumbled.
I don’t know my father.
I don’t know my mother.
It is very frustrating,
My brain isn’t relating!
I often feel violent!
I often feel disheartened.
I end doing everything so bad,
That it makes my parents sad.
PLEASE! Can you help me?!
I am not a bad person,
And I need all your kindness.
To give a befitting reply to all those,
Who have called me “mindless”

   
  WHO ARE WE
  Child Concern was established in August 1996 as a Non-Governmental Organization (NGO). "Samarpan" is a unit of Child Concern. "Samarpan" has the primary objective of Empowering Mentally and other handicapped through economic rehabilitation approach & advance technologies. It works for Mentally Retarded and other handicapped and destitute children. Samarpan is a tax-exempt nonprofit organization.
   
  In August, 1996 itself, Child Concern made a beginning by Mr. Shivajee Kumar with less than 20 children in small rented site, which was at Nala Road in Patna (Bihar). With support of people from various walk of life, Samarpan has now blossomed into a fully registered unique organization being managed by cooperation of parents, community members and involved donors.
   
  Samarpan’s vision is that every individual and family affected by intellectual disability in the state of Bihar (India) has access to the information, advocacy, and skills they need to participate as active citizens of our democracy and active members of their community. We work to ensure that people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families have the support they need to live an ordinary, decent life, that is:
 
  1. People with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families are valued, respected and included in all communities.
 
  2. People with intellectual and developmental disabilities direct their own lives. People choose their services and supports from many available sources.
 
  3. People are empowered through nonprofit advocacy. State and central government administer programs and set budgets that meet everyone’s needs.
  The Institution with modern infrastructure and a team of highly skilled team of professionals serves with specific emphasis on education, training and research in the field of Mentally Retardation.
