Shakti was born in 2010. It was conceived a few years before that when we realized that there were almost no integrated setups providing services- occupational therapy, speech therapy, special education etc. to children with special needs.
A group of dedicated professionals providing these services under a single roof was a boon to the children, while providing a platform to the therapists.
The Perennial Problem of Waste Management
We also came face to face with the omnipresent, yet invisible waste-pickers, a neglected community. We started working on providing them with alternative means of livelihoods, besides helping their children with their education.
We were confronted with the perennial problem of waste management, and it's impact on the environment, which necessitated our foray into the sector.
Initiated CSR Programs
We have initiated providing program management and research services and support to corporates in designing and implementing CSR programs. Having closely engaged with communities and their problems at the grass-root level, and with corporates and donors and their compliance requirements,
we have an understanding of the language spoken in villages and slums as well as in boardrooms. As such we are able to present feasible solutions that are both practical and impactful.
