Manobal

The Power is
within You.

Manobal is India’s first residential institute giving training for competitive examinations, technology and personality development catering to persons with disabilities, orphans and economically weaker students. We also assist our students in higher education and are dedicated to providing accessible and inclusive quality education. All these facilities are provided to the students free of cost. 

Our Vision

To build an inclusive society of good human beings by giving equal opportunity of education to all. 

Our Mission

To provide quality education for holistic development of 1 lakh persons with disabilities, orphans and economically underprivileged students by creating an ecosystem across India by 2030.

Our Purpose

Many NGO’s in India work for persons with disabilities, orphans, and economically underprivileged children below the age of 18 years. However, there are hardly any organisations providing better development opportunities in residential, higher education and competitive examinations guidance, to students, above 18. We realised the problems faced by persons with disabilities and orphans are mostly unaddressed. Manobal was initiated as the solution to address these problems. We work on a paradigm shift to a create a new thought that works towards their development.

Persons with Disabilities
Not many persons with disabilities are encouraged to dream bigger. They are conditioned from a young age to believe that their disability defines them, and all
they need is to learn some small vocational skill to survive by themselves in the world. They too are deserving of ambitions.

Orphans
For orphans, there are not many options to build their lives once they are 18. They are expected to move out of orphanages or shelter homes to fend for themselves. Due to lack of proper guidance family care such children are vulnerable. We empower them with free residential education and training. Apart from education we also take care of their marriage and other personal needs for the rest of their lives. Manobal focuses on providing them with a better environment for their smooth and successful integration into mainstream society.

Economically Underprivilieged
These students can be from any castes, religions, place or gender, here they are taken in based on their potential and merit. These children haven’t got the right opportunities in life because they come from backgrounds where their parents are not quite aware of the importance of education. Sometimes they also do not get right exposure to opportunities which takes away their chance to excel in their field of study. Many rural and tribal section girls’ families do not give priority for their higher education. We support students and work for their smooth integration into work opportunities of their choice.

Manobal Stories

Building a resilient community one student at a time

Jeevan Onkar

Manobal Student

Being an orphan and completely blind, brought many challenges to me while completing my graduation. But my association with Manobal helped me complete my post graduation and study for competitive exams with much ease. Manobal gave me the insight to shed negativity and look at all the good things happening to me. I am now working as a probationary officer with Union Bank.

Reena Barela

Manobal Student

My parents are tribal farmers. At the age of 5, I was diagnosed with polio and was left disabled. With so many difficulties in life, I saw no reason to live. But when I got admission at Deepstambh's Manobal, it changed my approach to life. Currently, I am working as an assistant at Secretriat of Maharashtra. My aim is to defeat my disability and be an officer. I thank Manobal for giving me a new life and also the donors who supported this cause.
