Asha Niketan Asansol
– Set up in 2007, Asha Niketan Asansol is the newest of our communities in India. Situated in the campus of St. Vincent’s School, we have one house which is home to five young boys with mental handicap and their assistants.
– In addition we have a Day Care Centre for children with intellectual disabilities who come in from their homes in Asansol Town.
– A garden and a Vocational training unit provide activites to the adult members with intellectual disabilities who come in daily to work. The garden provides us vegetables and flowers while we produce batik and tie and dye cloth, phenyl, paper-mache items and jewelry in our workshop.
– The community is lead by Ms.Bianca who is supported by live in assistants and support staff.
