Welcome to Garia Sathi

"Garia Sathi", a registered non-profit organization is committed to make a difference in the lives of the special children (Hearing Impaired, autistic, mentally & physically challenged) from the underprivileged society.

Through specialized training, treatments & instrumental aids, Garia Sathi is enabling differently challenged children to live up to their potential to lead a better life in the society.

We have been blessed with a world full of colours, fragrances and sounds - and most of us are fortunate enough to be able to feel & experience these shades of life. But then there are those who are not so lucky - whose lives are dark & silent.

We care for them - "They need Empathy, not Sympathy". Come and join us in our journey to add hope to their lives.

Garia Sathi, established on June 20, 2005, has taken upon itself to work especially with the challenged children, who belong to the Villages and Below Poverty Line (BPL) population. They are unable to have two square meals a day, leave alone pay for their treatment.

Garia Sathi has a team of dedicated and efficient professionals like Audiologists, Speech Therapists, Psychologists, Psychiatrists, Physiotherapists and Special Educators who enable special children with educational, socialization, self-help and sensory support. They also treat, train & educate a number of physically challenged adults belonging to the BPL and under privileged families.

 
Our Origin:

The very concept of “Garia Sathi” or the “Companion” originated in the mind of one of our members whose daughter is a victim of hearing impairment since birth. Early detection and suitable assistance sustained her natural growth and development of natural faculties.

 
About the Organization
Registration Under Foreign Contribution (Regulation ACT-1976 FCRA) :

Garia Sathi is a Registered Society under Social Registration Act XXVI of 1961 and also is registered under Government of West Bengal, Office of the Commissioner, for Persons with Disabilities under section 52(2) & (4) Act 95 Reg.No 257/com/(2007), Registered Act U/S 12AA of the I.T.Act 1961, Registered Act U/S 80G(5)(vi) of the I.T.Act 1961.

 
Our Mission:

 

To bring a ray of hope in the lives of the Hearing Impaired, Autistic, Mentally & Physically challenged children.

 
 

To guide the challenged children/ people towards a better & meaningful way of life.

 
Our Vision:

  We aspire to make the challenged children of today facilitators of tomorrow so that they can make a difference in the life of others and be self sufficient to contribute towards the country and the community.
 
 

We dream of an inclusive nation where no one will be a burden or obligation for the other.

 

Apart from our work at the institute, we organize Awareness Camps at far flung villages to reach out to the physically/mentally challenged children and adults. These camps also build awareness in the immediate community and help people understand the needs and requirements of their challenged family member(s) or neighbour(s).

Through these Awareness Camps, we aim to provide guidance and solution for a better life for the challenged people, enabling them to protect their self-esteem.

Over the last few years, the founders of Garia Sathi have met challenged children who have melted our hearts. Their desire and will to fight and learn, have often made us feel imprudent in thinking that we are the ones who are helping them. Our lives have been impacted by our experiences. We are now totally committed to this cause - to enable the challenged children to lead a better life in the society.
