‘Jyoti Sroat’ means the source of light. We are an inclusive school based in Shillong, Meghalaya, providing educational and rehabilitation opportunities to vulnerable groups which includes children with disabilities, children without disabilities, children from disadvantaged socio-economic background. The school was born out of the concern of a few well-meaning professionals and individuals of Shillong, for providing educational opportunities for children with Visual Impairment. The Society for Promotion of Eye Care and Sight (SPECS) founded by Dr. J. V. Basaiawmoit, with the expert advice of Sr. Rosario Lopez, the then President of Bethany Society, Meghalaya, established the first special school for the Visually Impaired in the city in 1993. After a short while, the school became a unit of Bethany Society. The motto of Bethany Society ‘Earth and Humans Fully Alive’ whispers into the ears of Jyoti Sroat School inspiring it to enable children and young people and its staff to lead a ‘Life with Dignity’ – the motto of the school.
