Asadeepam is established in 1993 under Santhimargam Social Welfare Service Society, a non profitable Charitable Organization run by special teachers, parents and well-wishers of disabled persons. Asadeepam works for people who have developmental disabilities, like mental retardation and autism. The task of Asadeepam is to create special conditions in which people with disabilities can learn to live with their limitations rather than suffer from them and to discover, develop and realize their abilities to the fullest extent. From our experience it is found that a section of mentally challenged is unable to lead a purposeful life in freedom and dignity due to poverty, ignorance and social stigma. The special education care and protection for the mentally challenged involve community participation and contributions.
The special school with its own hostel is functioning at Santhigiri, NAD Road Kalamassery, Kerala. We provide training, education care and protection for 60 mentally challenged persons here.
The quality of life of every mentally challenged person is equal to other citizens and whatever their severity of disability, they are entitled to dignity, care and right for development.
To provide systematic special education vocational training leisure social, sports and programs with care and protection for persons with developmental disorders.
