Kolours

Kolours Laboratory

The center hosts girls with disabilities, providing them a safe place to live. The girls have the chance to enhance their skills in tailoring, embroidery, card creation and jewellery making.

Through Kolours, they can sell their products in Europe and earn a living. Kolours invests in the center by sponsoring vocational training courses, material and machines. European and Indian styles are recreated in a unique fusion style which you can experience through our handmade embroidered cards and scarves.  

The center is located in Andhra Pradesh, India.

Premjyoti Society

It is a counselling, rehabilitation, vocational centre and an Integrated School for disabled and normal children. The center is based in Chiraigaon, near the holy city of Varanasi, in northern India.

This intergrated school is run by Sheela (Principal) and Pawan Kumar with much love and expertise. They both have specific training and experience in special education (from Delhi). Sheela worked for five years with Mother Teresa in Kolkata and other parts of India, before starting Premjyoti Society. Now the school hosts 75  children with metal or physical disabilities, together with few hundreds able children, from kindergarten to 8th grade.

Kolours supports children with disabilities by finding sponsors to support their education and mobility equipment (such as special bicycles to be used with arms for children affected by Polio). Kolours has also sponsored tailoring and embroidery courses in rural villages for poor women, and the purchase of sewing machines.

The handicrafts created during and after the tailoring courses are sold through Kolours and the revenues are entirely devolved to Premjyoti Society.
