Asha Niketan Bangalore
We are located in a busy residential area of India’s Silicon Valley city. We have one house for men with intellectual disabilities and their assistants. In 2008, we welcomed our first 2 women residents into the home. We hope to open a women’s house in the near future.
Our workshops provide employment for our residents as well as day workers who come in from their homes in the neighbourhood. Work includes candle making, weaving, tie & dye, batik, embroidered card making, papier-mâché, paper craft, bamboo craft and maintaining our campus garden.
Our community leader is Paul Joseph, and he is supported by live in and day assistants, as well as part time and full time employees.
