Akshat, a 15 year old boy with moderate mentally retardation, deficit speech and cerebral palsy, joined Amar Jyoti in January 2008.  At that time, he was unable to communicate at all, had poor hand-eye co-ordination and could not identify his parents, colours, numbers etc.

With the help of a multi-sensory approach and multidisciplinary team effort, he is fairly independent after learning life skills. He is also the proud recipient of the best student award in the artificial jewellery making - skill development unit.

Mrs. Mini Sharma

Mini, who was struck by polio at an early age, volunteered her services as a teacher when Amar Jyoti school was being run under a tree. She was soon appointed a regular teacher, and, over a period of time, promoted to the post of Principal. 

Her administrative efficiency and sensitive handling of staff and students endeared her to all. Besides administration, she continued to pursue academic courses in “aspects of learning difficulties for children and young people with disability”

Presently, Mrs. Mini Sharma is working as Deputy Director – Education department of Municipal Corporation of Delhi.
