Ahura Support a registered non- profit organization. It was an endeavour started by like minded families of mentally and developmentally challenged children and adults.

We would like to throw light on Ahura Support & its special efforts for the benefit of families with persons who are mentally and developmentally challenged. While the challenge of early intervention education and training has been met by many institutions in the city, very little has been done for adults who are differently abled. These individuals face problems like exclusion, isolation and the possibility of having no one to look after them when their parents age or are no more there to care for them. Ahura Support has decided to embrace this challenge to try and create a home for these members of society within the ever embracing city of Mumbai.

We started off at a small club house at Rustom Baug, Byculla one Sunday a month. Here one Sunday a month we would organise lectures, counselling and therapy sessions by experts in various fields, Professional Therapists and doctors for parents with differently abled members in their family. While the children and adults were kept engaged games and other recreational activities organised for them. In addition to being fun, these activities in some way improved the participants, cognitive, social, motor skills. These activities were organized to help parents not only understand the disorders better but also create a support group or support system for both parent & child.

 

 

We saw our first step and initiative come alive before our eyes with the start of our Day Care Centre at Gamdevi Road. We cater to adults & adolescents. Parents send their children to the center 5 days a week where they are kept organized in multiple activities. Our work is predominantly vocational based. We produce multiple items that are made by these adults to be sold. Some of our products include, Assorted Candles, Household Products and Decorations, Envelopes, Items with Block Print, including Trays, Coasters & Gift/Jewellery Boxes. Based on the type and amount of work done, each attendee is given a minimal stipend at the end of every month. The idea of receiving a cheque is motivational and therapeutic for these individuals in the most unimaginable way. It gives them an overall feeling of self-worth and achievement. This eventually gives them a sense of inclusion into the society at large.

We are currently in the process of setting up a residential facility for these individuals. We aim to provide them a home when they have no home to call their own. For more information & donations contact us at:
