MANASA is a non-profit voluntary organization working for the welfare and integration of intellectually challenged by implementing various programs for their development. It all started with the initiative of few responsible mothers who wanted to make a difference. Before 1990 there were very few special schools in Hyderabad for intellectually Challenged. The existing schools could not cater the needs of many Intellectually Challenged. The services to train an Intellectually Challenged child are very expensive and not within the reach of a common man.
• To run daycare centers and residential homes for intellectually challenged
• To admit students of all levels of retardation
• To impart free training
• To provide transport facility
• To work with the GOVT. & PUBLIC to secure more help
It all started with the initiative of few responsible mothers who wanted to make a difference.

Before 1990 there were very few special schools in Hyderabad for intellectually Challenged. The existing schools could not cater the needs of many Intellectually Challenged. The services to train an Intellectually Challenged child are very expensive and not with in the reach of a common man. Motivated with all these and also with the personal experience of few members, a group of 13 lecturers from Raja Bahadur Venket Rama Reddy Women's College, Narayanaguda, have planned to establish a charitable, non-profit & non-commercial organization for the welfare & integration of Intellectually Challenged by contributing some of their savings and effort. They are supported by their family members and friends.

The members met on 19 th February 1991 and decided to register the association with the name “MANASA“

The word Manasa is taken from the sacred lake “MANASA SAROVAR” in Himalayas which is well known for its purity and serene atmosphere. It has divine power that purifies the mind and enhances the mental and spiritual powers according to many believers.
