Umang is a non-government, not for profit, registered charitable trust formed with an objective of providing education and therapy to children with autistic disorder and slow learners. The Trust helps children with special needs and was started with a view to help the Autistics or Slow Learners, who are in need of multiple therapies but cannot afford it for an extended duration.
