ATMAVISHWAS is an organisation that was conceived with the intention of providing assistance to the Intellectually disabled or our “Special Friends” as we’d like to call them, to self actualize and provide forums wherein they can redeem their self-esteem – to be considered and consider themselves as contributing members of Society.


  • Offer dignity, Not Pity
  • Rights, Not Charity
  • Equality, Not dependence
  • Participation, Not Segregation
Towards this objective, a vocational training centre was started in Bandra(W), Mumbai on 26th August 2002 to impart training in art and craft skill sets, candlemaking & needlework. The objective of this initiative has been to ensure that the Special Friends are trained in various skills and thereafter to monitor and assist them to form their own cooperatives where they can replicate and reproduce various items and sell giving them a direct income leading to remunerative employment thus the co-operative model.

ATMAVISHWAS currently requires the following personnel :

1) Special Educator :
· To oversee the training program and general functioning of the Vocational Training Center.
· To teach skills and reinforce practice to perfection.
· To assist Volunteers in implementation of Co-operative model (Home Bound Program)

2) Volunteers :
· To co-ordinate & implement “The Cooperative Model” as a home-based program for our “Special Friends” who have successfully completed 2 years training at Atmavishwas. A pilot project is intended to be undertaken in the Bandra(W) area.
· The co-operative is intended to be formed with involvement of parents and sensitized citizens whereby it will provide remunerative employment, community interaction and personal development.
· The co-operative is to be planned and implemented on commercial lines to generate Profit which the “Special Friends” will retain as earnings.
· The co-operative will be provided with opportunities alongwith initial handholding by Atmavishwas.
