Sankalp Day Care Centre is a non-profit institution run by Kalyani Charitable Society which provides training and education for children with special needs. The centre was started in January’07 and is located in the heart of Kanpur city (Civil Lines) within the premises of the Georgina Mcrobert Memorial Hospital although the centre has an independent area and entrance.

The centre deals with children having mental retardation, cerebral palsy, autism spectrum disorders, hyperactivity & ADHD and delayed development due to any cause. The centre provides training and education of these children supported by physiotherapy, speech therapy, behaviour modification and medical assistance according to individual needs. The centre also provides parental counseling services.

The whole effort was motivated by the distress faced by parents during upbringing of a challenged child especially in a city like Kanpur where the available therapies were scattered at various different places so that it was very tiring for the child and parents to go from one place to the other for the needful. Also, it was impossible to make a coordinated effort under these circumstances for the betterment of the child.
1. We wish to emerge as a centre which can answer all the queries & provide all the facilities needed for proper care& development of special children.
2. To create social awareness to the level that no time is wasted in arriving at a diagnosis and looking for the right course of action whenever a problem is encountered during a child’s development.
3. The special children are accepted in the family and society as a lower functioning part of a spectrum.
Kalyani Charitable Society is a registered NGO (Reg. no. 1091-2006-2007, society registration act, 1860) formulated in December ’06 with the main aim to provide services to the challenged children of the society.

The society holds registration u/s 12A and 80G of the Income tax Act, 1961.
