On the occasion of the International Day of Persons with Disabilities, Dainik Bhaskar did an exclusive interview with our Founder and Executive Director, Dr. Gitanjali Sarangan about the work that the organization does and the role we play in building an inclusive society! The interview centered around building awareness about children with intellectual disabilities, and the various modes in which opportunities can be created for them, especially using multi-art modalities as Snehadhara does.
Snehadhara Foundation has always been ahead of the “sensitivity curve”, constantly assessing and reassessing what’s best for our children. Aware of how often those of us in the disability sector fail to feature in the government’s policy radar, we’ve ensured that the online sessions we’ve created during the lockdown are holistic, therapeutic, educational and with a generous dose of fun.
Firstpost.com has done an extensive, exhaustive piece on how those of us in the disability sector have had to transition to online sessions even as we do not fall under the conventional purview of the education industry. We help in therapy, in healing, in education, in nurturing and in counselling…areas that go well beyond what education literally means.
