About Us

SHANTINIKETAN is a non-profit, non-commercial voluntary organization rendering services to children with special needs in metro Atlanta and Rural India, Nirmal, where the need is yet to be uncovered and the needy are undeserved and regretfully undervalued. For past 6 years SHANTINIKETAN has been providing the special education and vocational training to those young hearts challenged with visual, hearing, or speech impairment or cursed by autism, cerebral palsy, and various other debilitating conditions. Currently we are operating in a rented building with limited resources and inadequate physical space.

SHANTINIKETAN is the first volunteer organization of its kind to provide the unique services in Nirmal, Dist, kondapur, village, that still beholds the low financial, medical, and educational standards. According to our primary survey, there are at least 200 children with special needs in communities surrounding the SHANTINIKETAN alone, who deserve our services. Unfortunately, we have been able to serve only a fraction of it due to our extremely limited space and financial resources.

To continue our mission of spanning the wings of hope and reaching out more kids we are moving forward with our ambitious project to build a dedicated campus and take our services to next level. Since its inception SHANTINIKETAN has been kept alive solely by Mr. Pannela, founder, and his close allies. But today it has reached a milestone in its history where it can’t turn the page without additional support from great hearts and giving hands. Hence, we humbly urge your support to carry on the torch for a noble cause through your generous giving in the form of money or any other resources at any level.
