‘Jyoti Sroat’ means the source of light. We are an inclusive school based in Shillong, Meghalaya, providing educational and mainstreaming 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 school was established on 22nd August 1993 as the first special school for the Visually impaired in Shillong. From 2006 onward Jyoti Sroat evolved into an inclusive school offering educational opportunities to all children. The students as of this year are children with disability, children without disability and children from other vulnerable and marginalized backgrounds. These children study together in the same classroom facilitated by teachers who are specially trained. The school is recognized by Meghalaya Board Of Secondary Education (MBOSE) and accredited with National Institute for Open Schooling (NIOS). The motto of Bethany Society ‘Humans and Earth 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.
