School for Potential Advancement & Restoration of Confidence India (SPARC India) is an Uttar Pradesh based NGO founded in 1996. The concept behind SPARC's interventions was that disability and addressing disability is a right-based issue and is under no situation a charity activity. It also felt the need to organize people with disabilities and facilitate their rehabilitation. SPARC realized that the rural and urban slum areas needed the intervention more strongly than the relatively developed urban regions.

Their programmes are:

  • Poorest Area Civil Society (PACS) Programme: The programme seeks to increase non-discriminatory access to healthcare systems and services for socially excluded groups, through programmes including National Rural Health Mission, Janani Suraksha Yojana, and other government initiatives. It aims at providing Persons with Disabilities (PwD) access to free government services, basic rights and entitlements under health, nutrition, education and sustained livelihood opportunities. It is running in 785 slums and 110 wards of Lucknow, Uttar Pradesh.
  • Jyoti Kiran School: SPARC established a special school, ‘Jyoti Kiran School’ in 2003 at Lucknow. The children admitted to the school suffer from cerebral palsy and other forms of disability such as hearing, speech, or vision impairment and mental retardation. It has now transformed into an ‘inclusive school’ that provides education and health care facilities to students without any bar of ability or disability. It also focuses on skill development, counselling, physiotherapy, speech therapy, and recreational activities.
  • Livelihood Resource Centre (LRC): It is a collaborative effort by Samarthanam Trust for the Disabled and SPARC. It aims at providing livelihood opportunities to PwDs by offering certified courses at the Training Centre. The beneficiaries are trained for skill development in batches, and focus is on imparting life skills (English speaking, personality development, etc.) and technical skills pertaining to specific trades.
  • Community Based Health Rehabilitation (CBR) Programme: It aims at organising and educating the PwDs about their rights, government schemes, and providing better health facilities and livelihood opportunities. The activities include medical intervention, awareness drives, establishment of Resource Centre, formation of groups and conducting training programmes.
