Brief History of the Organisation

Mrinaljyoti Rehabilitation Centre was established in 1999 at a time when awareness was in a very low ebb in the Society. No medical and educational facilities for these children were available in this vast area of Upper Assam. Now the Organization has crossed fourteen years in the service of these people with relentless effort of the members, volunteers, staff, parents and well-wishers. Mrinaljyoti is marching ahead in the service of mankind --- The Special Children of our Society for their education, treatment, intervention and rehabilitation.

Continuous effort to create awareness among the masses by organizing detection drive to detect special children in early age, awareness meeting, parents counseling and other field activities have resulted good response from the public and many people are coming forward to help these children and to protect their rights.

The Institution based activities like Special Education, Therapeutic Treatment, Self-Care Training and other rehabilitative support have definitely made an impact in the lives of the Children With Disabilities and their families.

The achievements what we have achieved during the last fourteen years were possible only with the continuous support from PSUs like Oil India Ltd., NEEPCO, AGCL and District Administration, National Trust authorities etc. Organizations like Ladies Club of Duliajan NEEPCO Ladies Club, Liliane Fonds, Bishop House. Dibrugarh, Oil India Executive Employees Association, WIPS, Rotary Club, Oil GDAP Dept. Sishusarathi, Prerona, NIMH / NIRMD and many more individuals are also rendering tremendous support to us..

Day-Care Centre `MRINALJYOTI', our first initiative in the field of education and rehabilitation has developed into one of the leading facilities provider in Upper Assam. At present there are more than 140 children enrolled with the Centre of which many are bed ridden and unable to come to the Institution regularly. Many more children from far off areas are coming to get admission. But we are very sorry to say you that due to our limited hostel capacity, Staff and financial constraint it is beyond our capacity to offer supportive service to more children in the Institution. Most of the children come from poor economic background and can go nowhere for treatment, intervention and education. In many cases we have to arrange financial support for their treatment, medicine, nutrition and education for a long period of time.

Rehabilitation of these children is a major challenge for us. Thousands of such children remain dependent for life time and few are able to do some light work only under guidance. Therefore we have decided to start Vocational Training on Nursery, Pisci culture, Horticulture, Duckery , Goatery, Tailoring etc. so that after returning to their home, they will be able to do something of their own or help other family members in productive work. Mrinaljyoti will definitely extend supportive services to these children even after they go back home. Already more than fifty PWDs have generated income of their own by opening their own shop, working as a mechanic in cycle repairing shops and even as a driver.
