About us
ROSHNI was founded in 1998 in Gwalior, Madhya Pradesh with the objective of providing direct services for persons with neurological and other impairments, raise awareness about disability, build capacities to increase the numbers and strengthen the knowledge and skills of the lay and the professional, family and community, to enable the inclusion of persons with disability into the community.

Swami Swarupanandaji encouraged and supported the advent of specialist services for persons with disability and provided space and administrative support at the Ramakrishna Ashrama, with ROSHNI required to fund its operations through its own resources. ROSHNI was perhaps the first specialist rehabilitation service provider for the disabled to appear within the State, and certainly so within the district of Gwalior. Sadly, despite the numbers of persons affected directly and indirectly by disability, rehabilitation services outside the so-called Metros – and to a marginal extent a few state capitals – are largely non-existent. The Ashrama offers the environment of a vibrant community complete in all respects, with a value system that inspires and empowers the people at ROSHNI—those working for the persons with disability and the persons with disabilities, their families and, indeed, all other stakeholders including the volunteers, donors, supporters.

ROSHNI has been growing and expanding in terms of the extent and range of services, impact, skills and knowledge and support base.
