RASA - Ramana Sunritya Aalaya empowers and facilitates the optimization of the potential of people with special needs using a very unique methodology of Indian Theatre Arts.Over the past 29 years, RASA is proud to have transformed the lives of tens of thousands of people with differing abilities. Most of Rasa's beneficiaries come from a lower socio economic society and would be completely bereft of stimulation if not for RASA. These services are completely HONORARY and need your support.
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.
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.
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.
We are currently expecting delays in getting funds to this project due to new regulatory requirements that impact GlobalGiving's ability to disburse to organizations in India. GlobalGiving is working hard to address the issue. Donations to this project will be disbursed as quickly as possible.
