Our Plans

Akshaya Kshetram is continually growing and developing. We have ambitious plans as to how to improve the service and care that we can provide.

 

In the short-term, our goals are to:

  • Introduce intensive teacher training through networking and exposure to other organisations and methods of working.
  • Provide support to parents – including counselling and guidance – as well as motivating them to be more involved in their children’s care.
  • Build a core group of volunteers to help find more people in need of Akshaya Kshetram’s facilities.

In the long-term, our goals are to:

  • Provide temporary shelter and training facilities for mentally challenged persons and families.
  • Expand our activities to cover outreach programs into the community through a core group of teachers and other staff.
  • Identify areas for vocational and skill training for mentally and physically challenged people and develop viable income-generating ventures with industries and other organizations.
  • Conduct regular programs for parents and develop training with them.
  • Asset building for stability.
  • Focus on financial independence and self-reliance by building up a corpus fund, through a series of fund-raising activities.
  • Network with other groups to increase the awareness amongst the general public about the need to actively integrate mentally challenged people into society.
  • Advocate for special provisions for mentally challenged persons into the spheres of education, health and employment.

For those with severe mental disabilities, our goals are to:
  • Conduct research to identify the causes of mental issues and initiate preventive programs.
  • Set up a small residential group home, fully equipped for the mentally handicapped.
  • Initiate sheltered workshops.
  • Introduce new and effective devices designed specifically for mentally handicapped people.
