Sangopita derives its inspiration from the struggles and triumphs of Ravindra and Sujata Sugwekar, parents of a child with cerebral palsy.
Devoting a large part of their lives to parenting their son with special needs, has made them literally ‘live in the skin’ of others like them. Aware of the lack of residential facilities for children / adults with special needs in rural India, they started Sangopita in 2003.
Sangopita is an organization that epitomizes passionate, involved parenting where each member is helped to reach his/her maximum potential and more importantly, is treated with dignity. Sangopita offers lifetime residential care to the physically, mentally and sensory impaired and for those with Autism, from mainly the lower socio-economic and impoverished strata of society. Besides residential care, Sangopita also runs a Day Care centre and special school for the physically and mentally impaired, in Badlapur, near Mumbai.
SANGOPITA AND YOU
Sangopita's value lies in the services it provides to persons with disability. It is amongst the few organizations in India and the only one in Mumbai, catering to and offering lifetime residential care to the severely disabled from the impoverished strata of society. It has been founded and is run by parents of a special needs child and empathises with the trauma, the guilt, the apprehensions, the hopes, dreams and aspirations of parents like them who battle financial struggles while parenting a special needs child. As a donor, you will be given feedback and a report on the use of your contribution by Sangopita. Each rupee you contribute will be used for the welfare of the person with disability. You are free to visit Sangopita and experience for a short time, our world.
