The UMEED Special Education project supports children under the age of 6 years with special needs who are orphaned and abandoned and living within the premises of Society for Indian Children's Welfare (SICW). The project ensures their right to equality and a dignified life where self-reliance is secured.

UMEED classes are designed to develop the children’s cognitive, communication, self-help, motor, and academic skills through a progressive curriculum based on milestones. Emphasis is put on social integration. The children also receive physiotherapy, speech therapy, prosthetics, and other aids, depending on the nature of their disability.
