Navjyoti School, Dharan: A Brief History

Navjyoti School, Dharan, Sunsari District – Province No. 1, began in 1985 as a special school to cater to the educational needs of the intellectually challenged children of Dharan Municipality. The objective of the school was to provide a learning atmosphere for the socially alienated children of the area so as to equip them with skills for self-reliance. As part of the government’s effort to consolidate special education, the students from Navjyoti School were shifted to a government establishment in 1987. It was then that the Sisters of Charity of Nazareth focused their ministry on formal education. Thus, on Jan. 4, 1988, Navjyoti School opened its portals for the children of the locality.
