Director’s Message

In this society there are differently abled people. Many of them are separated from the society. But they also have talents. We must give them the opportunity to express their talents. So in this hope we started a center called Islamic Center for the Physically Handicapped.

This center was started for differently abled children to improve their talents and give them a position in the society. This was established in 1984.05.03. Today we completed about 31 years with the grace of almighty Allah.

We provide school education, vocational skill training, rehabilitation, food, health care, medical & hostel facilities to differently abled children of all community. All services are free, funded by public donations.

The students in this center are best example for the statement “Disablility is not Inability”. They have multiple talents. So please guide eligible disable children in your locality to contact us.

I thank the well-wishers who give their support in the progress of this center and I expect their help in future also.

“Help Helping Hands”


Thank You,
