Who We Are

Founded in 1944, Jai Vakeel Foundation (JVF) is one of the oldest & largest not for profit institutes in India serving children & adults with Intellectual Disability (ID). We serve the entire spectrum of ID from borderline IQ to mild, moderate, severe and even the most profoundly challenged.
At JVF, we are committed to looking at each child with a belief in their potential to lead fuller and more inclusive lives. We aim to integrate our children to the maximum extent possible, be it in family, community & society. Towards this objective we have developed a holistic model of interventions (Healthcare, Education and Skilling) to enable our children to participate with equal opportunity in society. The definition of participation may look different for different children, but we focus on the potential and not on the disability.
Annually, we serve 750 individuals (ages 3-50 years) with ID on our 3 campuses of Mumbai, Deolali & Talegaon and serve another 2,400 children through rural medical camps. Further we work with 436 special schools in Maharashtra through our state partnership program - Disha Abhiyan and hope to impact the education of 18,000 children enrolled in them.

Raising Funds For

Persons with Intellectual Disability (PwID) have an IQ less than 70 (Normal IQ is 90-100) which significantly impairs intellectual functioning as well as activities of daily living.
At Jai Vakeel Foundation we believe that each PwID has the potential to lead a fuller and more inclusive life. Initiatives are aimed at integrating students to the maximum extent possible - be it in family, community and/or society. Towards this objective we have grown a holistic model of intervention that is crucial in the multi-dimensional development of each student. Interventions include healthcare, education, skill development . In Education, we run our own schools in Mumbai, Talegaon & Deolali and disseminate our standardized, accredited curriculum across 436 special schools in Maharashtra. Post 18 our students move to the Skill Development Center, where depending on the severity of ID, adults are either provided vocational training, activities of daily living or livelihood opportunities. Our Healthcare vertical extends medical consultations, therapy, counseling sessions to our students enrolled at the Schools and Skill Development centre.
The Annual Budget to support the above holistic interventions is 22 crores and Funds raised will allow our students to access their basic right of quality education and healthcare.
