Stories of Change Radio

Snehadhara Foundation's Uhuru programme at the centre of the first episode of Stories of Change, a radio programme by Azim Premji University. This story is a celebration of the Uhuru programme that has continuously aimed to creative wholesome, inclusive and joyful learning experiences for all.

Snehadhara Foundation

From living dreams with the children, in a Centre located in a packed, residential area in South Bangalore, to exploring expanses of space in a gated community in Nelamangala, it has indeed been a long journey for the Snehadhara Foundation family, literally and metaphorically.

We set out to find new rhythms of exploring learning in a brand new space, designed exactly towards opening out such exciting explorations.

Direct Care

The Direct Care space of Snehadhara is our realm of caring, advocacy and inclusion practice. Respecting every child’s unique needs, our programmes are carefully designed to enhance their abilities and meet their therapeutic goals. Our aim is to address the social and independent goals of the children to meet their aspirations for life, vocation and livelihood along with nurturing a sense of social inclusion with arts.

Our Direct Care Centre works with children and adults with developmental disabilities that include Down Syndrome, Autistic Spectrum Disorders, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, Cerebral Palsy, Mental Retardation, Speech Delay/Impairment, Learning disorders and mental illnesses along with their caregivers and families.


Prajñādhara’s twin aims are to create inclusive spaces that celebrate neurodiversity by certifying students in Arts Practices for Inclusion (API) and Study of the Mind.


impART, a division of Snehadhara Foundation is a platform that looks at interventions, methodologies and practices using the Arts in schools, colleges, corporates and the community to create an inclusive society.

"The most important thing in communication is to hear what isn’t being said. So, how do we communicate with someone who speaks a language that is different from what we know or rather how we understand someone who does not speak, sound and perceive things like us? What better way than the language of the Arts. I would paraphrase it and say it is that unconscious form which bypasses the powerful and rational brain and goes directly to the healing power of the heart”
