Manosakha is an initiative that was taken up by Dr. (Mrs.) Swati Bharti and Mr Ashish Anshu back in 2011 to provide educational and moral support to kids from the underprivileged section of our society. It started off with just one student, but very soon a few supporting hands joined and it has transformed itself into an organization.
Today’s Manosakha supports over 40 students categorized along age groups, skill set, learning abilities and formal education set up. Each of them is taken through highly personalized learning curve, which involves personal counseling besides nutrition, study material and other basic needs.
Manosakha has found support amongst like minded people, who have come forward and readily extended helping hand for bringing these children to mainstream, the social and education system. Purity and sincerity takes its own growth path and so are we. Manosakha has taken its next step to reach out, we are sure many of you will join support the initiative by way of donation, volunteering or simply by sharing the idea of Manosakha.
How we have touched noble souls so far
Manosakha runs Child Care and Development program for differently abled children at Begumpet in Hyderabad.We have expanded the dictionary meaning of “differently abled” to include children with financials, social or educational (parent’s) inability, with one commonality; compassion. This suddenly changed the operating parameters. Compassion is such a strong binding force that all forms of disabilities vanished from the Manosakha premises. It enabled smooth transition from special purpose school to mainstream school for everyone, including “differently abled” pupil.Yes, we enable pupil with special needs, financial inability or simply indifferent parents to migrate to formal education system through counseling, classroom education, social skills, immunity building, nutritional food, educational aides and art lessons.
Apart from this, we also plan on counseling and educating the parents and families of the already existing 40 kids along with new ones in the right ways of parenting and maintaining a right household environment required for the kids to grow into a person with not just the right educational qualification but also with the right personality.
How we do it
