Snehadhara Foundation (SF) is a registered non-profit organization based in Bangalore. We are the first and only Centre in India that uses Arts Based Therapy as the primary methodology to work with children and adults with disabilities.
The twin goals of the Foundation are - Arts Based Therapy and Education for Inclusion.
ALL children and young adults regardless of disabilities should have access to inclusive learning environments. This is possible if we think of inclusion differently. Snehadhara's vision is to take the mainstream world and build inclusion into it using the Arts. We believe that inclusion can be made an integral part of mainstream learning systems thereby opening doors to all children whose learning needs are now unmet.
The Direct Care space of Snehadhara is our social lab, which aspires to be a model for special populations that addresses life goals, academic interventions, and where possible learning experiences to meet vocational goals, livelihood and long term care giving. Here through various programs we work with children across disabilities and across age groups using the Arts.
impART is our initiative that looks at capacity building, training, certifications to create welcoming communities, build an inclusive society and achieve learning for all through the Arts.
