Every parent dream to provide their child with the best education available. They also desire their wards to overcome every obstacle so that they achieve what they aspire. However, in many instances this fails to happen. This could be due to financial instability, lack of resources, social background, and many more.

While in some cases it’s the children, who themselves are different from the common world. They try but can’t contribute enough to match the potential of the common individuals.

This gives the need for institutions such as the 'Tears Institute of Mentally Handicapped, Agra'. It is a top-notch institute in the field of ‘Mental Retardation’. The institution focuses to train, educate, and rehabilitate mentally challenged students socially. It also gives emphasis on helping mentally challenged individuals to lead normal life and help their parents to resolve their problems.
