School for Potential Advancement and Restoration of Confidence or SPARC India, as it is more popularly called, was established in 1996 inspired by self-disability, to provide rehabilitation services to persons with disabilities (PwDs) and their families. Dr. Amitabh Mehrotra (Founder Chairperson and Director of SPARC India), despite having cerebral palsy, has undertaken several initiatives to serve persons with disabilities.
Under his guidance, SPARC India has worked tirelessly to bring the PwDs and people from marginalized sections of the society into the mainstream. SPARC India has initiated several programs at the community level for empowering Persons with Disabilities (PwDs) and uplifting the marginalized section of the community.
Empower marginalized especially persons with disabilities through the creation of equal opportunities and paving the way for an inclusive society
Serve and create a barrier-free environment for marginalized sections of society, particularly the persons with disabilities where they can realize their rights and live with dignity.
