The Deepti Centre, Kerala, India

UK registered charity no. 1137035

Candle for India is the UK charitable arm which supports the work of the Deepti Centre for special needs children in Kerala India.

The charity was established in 2009 and has funded specialist equipment, training and modifications to the existing building. Annually, the charity funds the running costs of the school bus, the salaries of the physiotherapists, and special needs teachers as well as a receptionist to greet new prospective parents and children.

The school is supported teachers and staff from Villa Real Special School in Durham and we are grateful for their input and encouragement every year.

The Deepti Centre has an active following on Facebook which is updated with all the latest news from the school and its services.

Our OT blog follows Occupational Therapists Caroline Clay and Caroline Essame as they visit each year to support the work of the Therapists, teachers, parents and children. The "Carolineinkerala " blog can be found under our media section.
