The specially abled children are special gifts from the almighty. Their specific needs are well taken care of at a school dedicated to them.  Such school was need of the hour in an around Mapusa and Aastha a NGO took the lead to start ‘Anand Niketan’ a abode of happiness for such children and their parents.

It all started 5 years back in a rented 4 room house with one teacher and a dedicated team of people as management.

The school has seen children rising form mere 2 to 55 marker row.  The well trained dedicated teacher, team of Associate staff, trained physiotherapist and visiting speech therapist have brought out a sea change in the working of the school.

Children unable to talk and walk are seen uttering sentences and walking and running around with a broad smile.

The daily routine which was once a far possibility is done with so much joy by this children that parents are delighted at the change.

The physiotherapy unit under our trained team has been a boon to one and all.

The vocational training centre- Siddham  has been actively run by teachers and senior children whose skill tests determine the kind of work they do and they also earn praises and money out of it which is fully utilized for their activities only.

Anand Niketan now plans to have a Day care Centre running for entire day and we all at Aastha and Anand Niketan look forward to this as well.
