The population of poor special needs children in Chennai, India, is woefully underserved. The Opportunity School is their only hope.
Since its inception in 1969, the Opportunity School has helped students from all backgrounds. The women who run the school are amazing - loving the children, stretching their meager funds, creating opportunities for these children to have fruitful lives.
The school’s purpose is to educate children with special needs and help them become self sufficient members of society. The school provides education, life skills, and vocational training (ages 3-18) for some of India’s most needy, vulnerable, and ostracized members of society.
Watch this short video below to see why the amazing Opportunity School must be saved!

The Opportunity School floods during monsoon rains and was becoming uninhabitable. We lifted the 1st building 5 feet, renovated it, and have almost raised funding for the 2nd building. HELP fund the last building's renovation!
