    from Tura, Meghalaya


Hi we are JA'PANG an NGO from Tura, Meghalaya. We are trying to raise funds to create access for indigenous adolescents and families trying to avail mental health services.

Ja'pang is a service-led not-for-profit organization comprising of a multidisciplinary team that aims to promote positive mental health and well-being through awareness generation, adopting alternative means of teaching and learning, recognizing reinforcing and restructuring traditional and contemporary life skill practices by working closely with children, youth, and their families. It aims to identify gaps in mental health service provision, especially among Indigenous communities, by addressing false beliefs, barriers in accessing services among those from low socio-economic backgrounds and families with mental health needs. By creating an accessible, stigma free,  resourceful environment it hopes to bridge the gap between service provision and beneficiary helplessness. 

Ja'pang presently is looking to change the concept of mental health service provision in Garo Hills, by adopting community engagement and safe spaces to discuss mental health issues. Ja'pang wants to reach out to more youths and their families for which they require a mode of transport. The idea of a pop-up mental health service center is expected to create space for changing the narrative of service provision on different issues plaguing youth in this part of Northeast India, and create an alternative space for learning.  Please help us support the cause for greater access greater empowerment.

Each rupee counts. No matter what life throws at you I believe "we rise by lifting others".
