CENTRE BASED RESPITE
COMMUNITY BASED RESPITE
Who we are
GHARA is a Bengaluru based charity founded in 2009. We provide support services to empower those ‘forgotten’ individuals with intellectual disabilities and their families, from low socioeconomic backgrounds. Having worked within the disability sector in India, we at GHARA recognised that a combination of intellectual disability and poverty was near impossible to escape. Ever committed to breaking this cycle, GHARA provides individualised supports in the form of a day-care centre, therapy services, pre-vocational training, social and recreational activities, medication, equipment, and self-care skills to over 35 individuals and their families.
Our Founder, Athellia Dias
