Challenge

Most special institutions in India and around the world focus on the development of the 3 R s - Reading , Writing and Arithmetic. Only few focus on the holistic development of people with special needs. Moreover, the over all development of the individual is not always addressed. Indian Theatre Arts is an ideal modality to create holistic empowerment while going back to ones roots .This helps empower the thousands of individuals coming into its fold in a deep and direct manner.

Solution

RASA answers this problem by focusing on the personality development of one and all using ancient wisdom, and traditions of dance, drama, music and story telling . By providing sponsorship to people with special needs, this project will be able to guide and truly make the statement "PEOPLE WITH SPECIAL NEEDS ONLY HAVE NEEDS THAT ARE DIFFERENT AND ARE EQUAL TO EVERY OTHER PERSON".They deserve to learn , earn and fully explore themselves both physically , socially , financially , and spiritually.

Long-Term Impact

This project will uplift the lives of more than 1000 people with special needs on a yearly basis allowing them to rise above their limitations and achieve their full potential.
