|Motto||creative center for the mentally challenged|
Advitya, is a non-profit organization in India that works for providing a better lifestyle for disabled adults. It was established in the year 2000. Their main aim is to create awareness about the disabled adults and increase their levels of socialization. It was established by Mrs. Anjali Shah who is also the founder trustee.
In 2000, Anjali Shah started helping and guiding disabled individuals through the healing touch of music and colors. This was how Advitya began.
Area of work
Advitya’s main challenge lies in the fact that they accept students who can no longer continue in other special schools. Since most of the students suffer from major behavioral disorders or are too old, the volunteers at the centre make use of colors and music as therapeutic ways of helping them overcome their problem. They are provided constructive occupation of adding value to a range of gift items like bags, envelopes, purses, stationery, upholstery and their likes.
Events and tie ups
Fest-o-Advitya 2008, was a star studded event that attracted a lot of media coverage and gave an opportunity to these disabled adults to showcase their talents.
