.               Jasmina Khanna, a Young women with Cerebral Palsy, while sharing her view on a Home for the disabled said “ Very frequently there arises a question in minds of parents of people with disability is that  "Who will look after their child after they are gone?" With the fast spaced lifestyle and the selfish world even the siblings of disabled person do not want to take added responsibility of the disabled kin. Unlike western countries where the government provides for shelter homes for people with disability as they are welfare state no such concept exists in India.  Even those  few negligible shelter homes that are existing around the country are not in good condition.  Parents belonging to middle class and higher class strata find it difficult to keep their children in such homes after they are gone.  Hence a good state of the art home is the need of the hour.   A home where people with disability are not shunned but given compassion, love, respect and dignity.  A home away from home where they can spend rest of their lives with likeminded people.
The Voices of many such Persons with Disability and their parents gave birth to the need to build Saanidhaanam
'Saanidhaanam' a home away from home at  Palghar District for people with physical disabilities and senior citizens, to share happiness, provide care, medical services, therapy, vocational; and recreational activities, nutrition, wellness, safe, accessible and comfortable life style.
The broad goal is to ensure that the residents get a reason to live and improve their quality of life under the supervision of experienced professionals

  • To build a home for the most vulnerable section of the society, the disabled and the senior citizen who are unable to take care of themselves … maintain their quality of life with dignity.
  • Concern of parents about the future of their child (with physical disability) after them.
  • Gripping fear of exploitation, molestation, abuse of the disabled
  • Fear of cheating, murder and loneliness of the senior citizen
  • Very few homes available with secured facilities of training, medical and care all under one roof.
