Snehadhara Foundation (SF) is a registered non-profit organization based in Bangalore that works with children and adults who are differently abled, their caregivers and their families. 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.
SF aims to bridge developmental deficits in education and inclusion. Our approach to this is two-fold. We create opportunities for learning for children with special needs and enable additional possibilities to achieve independence and empowerment.
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.
We, at Snehadhara, believe that each child requires meaningful and holistic learning spaces which are co-created by all those who engage with them. With this objective in mind, Snehadhara Foundation set up impART, an initiative that looks at capacity building, training and social inclusiveness, driven by the methodology of the Arts. We have been engaging with various government schools, organisations working with children and schools. This initiative feeds into our long-term goal of creating a truly inclusive society.
