See the ABLE, not the Label

Dutch inspirational speaker, Alexander Den Heijer, has aptly pointed out that “When a flower doesn’t bloom you fix the environment in which it grows, not the flower”. Endeavouring to sensitise our communities to children with special needs, SRCF organised a colouring event – Rang Kala, on Sunday 23/04/2017, for children with special needs at our Physiotherapy and Special Children Rehabilitation Centre, in Jambhulkar Centre.

47 enthusiastic children and their equally spirited parents turned up at the Centre on Sunday morning and filled it with colours, fun, and laughter. The children showed their versatility in creativity through their colouring, dancing, and musical skills. One of the participants even demonstrated different yoga poses beneficial to children and adults alike. All the children were awarded a certificate of excellence for their unparalleled talent.

SRCF would like to thank all our participants and their parents for allowing us to glimpse and experience their loving, vibrant and warm spirit.

Every child is an artist – Picasso

While promoting rights for women Malala Yousafzai had famously stated, ‘We cannot all succeed when half of us are held back’. The same words stand true for children with disabilities. Considering the paucity of platforms available to them, SRCF is pleased to organise ‘Rang-Kala’, a colouring event for our children with disabilities at its Physiotherapy and Special Children Rehabilitation Centre in Wanowarie.

Open to children between the ages of 3 and 15 years, SRCF will be providing all material for the event to be held on Sunday, 23/04/2017 from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm. To make the event accessible to maximum children, SRCF has waived registration charges and requests all parents/guardians to register their children for the event by 20/04/2017.

To register your child or know more email us on hello@src.foundation or call us on +918380087035 / +91 8380087042.

Come and be inspired to be a special kind of person, through our children with special needs.

Making Smiles Signature Accessories

On March 21st, SRCF launched its Dental Unit, a first of its kind dental services for the residents of Ramtekdi which is an urban slum, near Hadapsar Pune. The inauguration received a warm response from the community and is a welcome addition to Anand Chhaya, our medical services centre in the slum. The Dental Unit builds on existing Medical OPD and Physiotherapy OPD services which are already being offered.

As per the survey conducted by SRCF in association with Tata Institute of Social Sciences (TISS) Mumbai, 37% of elders have dental problems.
Anand Chhaya’s Dental Unit has all the necessary equipment required to address most common dental procedures such as root canals, scaling, filling, extractions, crowns, bridges and dentures. Under an arrangement with AFMC’s Dental Department, which is close by, complex cases will be referred to them and will be treated for free.

On Sunday, March 26th, SRCF held a dental camp to create awareness about its dental services at Anand Chhaya. To promote SRCF’s view that it is not dentistry that is expensive but neglect, the consultation charge was kept at a most affordable INR 10 per consultation. 77 residents of all ages attended the camp.
