Nilanchal Seva Pratishthan is a lovely home for orphans, blind, deaf and mentally retarded children


Children are not a project liability for funds for the Nilanchal Seva Pratishthan (NSP).  On my visit to the NSP, I observed and realised that NSP is a family home for children. NSP provides residential and non-residential education to tribal and non-privileged children of the Puri region in Odisha including orphans, blind, deaf and mentally retarded children. NSP says that these children need special care and to be looked after by a specially trained faculty.

NSP runs a separate schools for blind, deaf, mentally retarded children and orphans within the premises with separate residential blocks. There are separate labs and special classes with special equipment for these children. There are beautiful playgrounds, ponds, gardens and agricultural fields for the children to make them feel that the campus is their own home. NSP organizes traditional events during festivals time as a larger family would, to provide children a very homely environment.



Vocational Trainings:

There are industrial training institute, computer training centre, electronics training centre, farming training centre and vocational training centres to support gain employment after school.

Talking with Vivek Umrao Glendenning, the founder of NSP said very clearly “NSP was founded for the children.  It is being run for the children. We need funds for children but we do not need children for funds.”
