| | posted on:Mental Illness, Mental Retardation

“SAMARPANA” is a society registered under the Tamilnadu Societies Registration Act 1975. It was actually registered on 8th September 1995.Samarpana- Home for mentally retarded - chennai

It was founded by Mr.B.M. SRIDHAR, Dr.R. Nanjundarao – President, Mrs. K. Bhavani – Secretary, Mrs.Joyce – Treasurer, and several other Executive members and Members.

The main object of “SAMARPANA” is to serve the society in general and the deprived sections of the society like SPASTIC and MENTALLY RETARDED, disabled, old aged, deserted women, orphans, destitute’s etc., in particular and to strive for the upliftment of the society, irrespective of caste, creed and religion.

With a view to attain this main object of us, we have set up a goal to establish and administer special homes, training and day care centers for the Spastics and Mentally retarded, disabled children and other deprived sections of the community.

Activities

The organization was inaugurated on 2nd April 1995. As a small step towards the path leading to the above goal of us “SAMARPANA” has established the following two residential centres for the targeted community we plan to serve:

1. “THE NEST” – Home for Spastics.
2. “THE RAINBOW” Home for Mentally retarded.

In these two centres children and adults from socially and weaker section are admitted and they are provided with specialized services like Physiotherapy, Speech therapy, Special education, Pre-vocational and Vocational training by specially trained and highly dedicated persons.

A part of these two residential centers, Samarpana is running a Day-care centre named “NIDHARSHANA” for Spastics and Mentally retarded children living in the neighborhood of its centre who may not qualify for admission into its residential centres. The parents of these children are given free consulting and small tips for bringing up their children.

We also conduct “Social awareness campaigns” to make the society understand the problems of the Spastics and other handicapped children. This is done by organizing meetings, cultural shows, sports etc., for these special and disabled children.
