Special Families Support Group
Gulshan Kavarana is one of the most popular women in Dubai’s Indian community. Heading the Special Families Support (SFS) Group, founded in 1999, it is her job to help families cope with special needs children and the challenges of family life by acting as an inspiration, coach and motivator to those parents. SFS is now regarded as the biggest NGO in the country. A mother of two based in Dubai, she has also gone to great lengths to assist the children themselves who have special needs, after her own daughter was diagnosed with autism. More than 100 families across the UAE now benefit from her help.
