The history of SSK goes way back to 1982 when Mrs. Mitu Alur, mother of Malini, diagnosed with cerebral palsy, sowed the seed for existing SSK on the land which was provided to us by the Government of Karnataka. Since then, this great tree of multiple services, interventions and programmes has grown.
This beautiful banyan tree with its columns of aerial roots gives support to thousands of children with neuromuscular impairment and developmental disabilities. Today we are serving 6000 children annually in our various sub-centre and affiliated outreach centres.
The nurturing of the seed to a beautiful banyan tree has happened due to the enduring services with involvement and affection by professionals, parents and volunteers and community and efforts of children themselves. Till date we have serviced around 50,000 children and families.
