PREMJYOTI SOCIETY’’ is the name of our organization. PREMJYOTI which means light of
love is a non-government, non-profitable inclusive educational institution. It was established in the
year 1996 in a small hut with 2 disabled (Divyang) students. It was a simple idea to bring both
disabled & non-disabled under one umbrella to instil in normal children acceptance, friendship,
understanding and a positive attitude towards children with disability & also inculcate confidence in
disabled to live with equality & Dignity.
The journey which commenced ‘23’ years ago in a small hut under a “Neem Tree”
with 2 students has come a long way with ‘456’ students (‘234‘ boys & ‘222’ girls ) with & without
disabilities receiving education, respect& love with a holistic approach. There are ‘66’ disabled
children & ‘29’ teaching & supporting staff. At Premjyoti we provide, Integrated education, Special
education, English Medium, Outreach unit for disabled, Tailoring class for girls in the school,
Tailoring centre for women in village, Vocational training, Awareness camps for disabled, Health check-
up camps for poor people, Focus on DALIT or Scheduled caste (the lowest class in religion ) children’s
All these services would not have been possible at all without the constant financial
support from Rose Wagner mam & her team from Austria .
Dearest Rosi Mam,
Let this letter serve as our small and simple way of showing you our love and respect for the great
valuable financial support you extended to Premjyoti Society, Chiraigaon, Varanasi, India since 2006.

financial support you have rendered whole heartedly to support us. We have no words or our words are
not enough to thank you for sparing your most valuable time and taking time out of your busy schedules
to help Premjyoti. Premjyoti would not be what it is today without your tender loving care. As a
