Welcome to Mathrushree Manovikasa Kendra (MSMK)
Degree of evolvement of a society is gauged by the manner in which it cares for those placed at any kind of a disadvantage vis--vis the rest of society at large due to force of circumstances such as birth, age or disability.
A truly compassionate society makes allowances for such infirmities in a non- intrusive, participative and sensitive manner ensuring equal opportunities to all by providing a level playing field.
Mathru Shree Manovikasa Kendra (MSMK) is the outcome of such a compassionate and strong conviction to provide a level playing field to the Differently Abled Children in Bangalore. This is an initiative by Mr Basavaraju who was keen to provide shelter and training to these special children. His focus was especially on the children from the economically challenged families who are ill equipped to meet the challenges of raising such a child.
Mathru Shree Manovikasa Kendra is non-profit, non-commercial, voluntary organization dedicated to the welfare of the differently abled children. Established as a residential school in March 2003, this school is a voluntary private organisation run by MSMK, the institute is managed by a team of committed professionals working towards the welfare of the mentally challenged.
