Welcome to Shikhar
Shikhar is a voluntary organization created solely with the purpose of helping the cause of mentally challenged. Shikhar is recognized by Ministry of Social Justice and Empowerment, Govt. of India, Department of Social Welfare; Govt. of Rajasthan, and is registered with the National Trust.
Shikhar, started on 21st June, 2002 with the encouragement of parents and well wishers, was aimed at helping the Mentally Challenged children with a strong commitment and empathy. We strongly feel that the disabled are not victims of fate, but of our own negligence.

From The Founder
During my education & the time when I was a teacher, many a times I came across some special children, who used to go in the normal schools. But in those schools these children were treated indifferently and teachers couldn't pay special attention to them as required.
I used to think there must be some special school dedicated to these children where they can be treated and trained in a special way, keeping their needs & abilities in mind.
