My dear students you are going to enter in to the most trilling period of your life. You did it and are being rewarded for that. Keep trying until you achieve your dreams.”
The Centre’s challenge is to look for young children from far off and remote villages who are affected by Leprosy , dependents of persons affected by Leprosy and persons with other disabilities who are neglected by their families. They are brought to VTC, nurtured, trained, taught and made worthy human beings. Coming from backgrounds where education has no place in their lives the initial struggle is a challenge.
