In 1996 the management committee of Kodagu Vidyalaya realised there was no facility for the 'Differently abled in Coorg. So the Opportunity School - Sahas, was set up within the Kodagu Vidyalaya campus. Since then it has been providing various therapies, functional and formal education and life skills for children with special needs. Over the years it has built awareness in the district and children who had been 'tucked away' appeared and their special needs and rights got recognized and addressed.
