The Universal Learning Integrated Programme and School (TULIPS) under Saraswati Mandir Trust was founded to provide educational programmes to the mentally retarded children and help them to integrate into mainstream education at the earliest and to bring a sense of regularity in their life. To bring this to reality Saraswati Mandir Trust runs three projects namely Tulip School, PACE Resource Centre and FAQforEDU.
The aim of this organisation is:
To build a society where everyone is given equal respect.
To build a world where everyone is given equal opportunity.
To build a future where disability is not all that special.
The services provided by Tulip includes quality education programme, counselling to parents and children to give them 100% support, and to spread awareness in the society so that these children are treated normally as other children.
