On Saturday, October 5th from 10am to 1pm we will be hosting Geeta Mondol, founder of the Ashish Center. The Ashish Center is our global partner located in New Delhi, India and provides holistic education and support to children with disabilities and their families.
Her workshop “A Structured Approach in Love and Preparedness” will focus on working with students with autism. Geeta is an expert in the field, and will share her experiences and ways of using positive behavioral methods when working with students with autism. This would be a great workshop for teachers, Greenhouse volunteers, and is open to anyone else inside or out of the Vox Veniae community.
There is a suggested $5-$10 donation for this workshop which will go directly to the Ashish Center. (Larger donations welcome). For more information email [email protected] or checkout the Vox Facebook event page.
MORE ON THE ASHISH CENTER:
Ashish Center’s vision is to bring hope and dignity to children with autism and their families.
Ashish Center serves 30-40 students with autism and their families. The center is anchored on the transformational truth that all people are made in the image of God, full of value and God-given potential. For students facing a world that often looks on them as worthless, Ashish lays a foundation of dignity and hope based on this truth. Through multiple therapies and a 4:1 student-teacher ratio, they build communication and life skills to help each one reach their full potential.
More than 90 percent of students at Ashish receive a need-based scholarship. No child should go without the services they need because their family cannot pay.
Your donation to Ashish Center will help students with autism know that they are precious to God, are designed with a purpose, and have talents and skills to contribute to society.
