The different schools of Lokvishwas Pratishthan celebrates all relevant days related to disability, to draw the attention of the general public, politicians and developmental authorities towards the achievement and accomplishment of Special Children. And also to promote better and healthy life, respectability, self esteem, education and work for these children.

To make the public realize that these days are not days merely extend our sympathies to these children, but to see it as an opportunity to make a ‘difference’ in their lives.

Following days are celebrated:
