Navkshitij was established to improve the well-beingof mentally challenged friends – we take them under our wing, organize activities, teach them life skills and vocational skills, encourage them to become as independent as possible, and nurture them in a compassionate environment.
The idea of Navkshitij took shape while planning and organizing a walkathon from Pune to Lonavla, for mentally challenged friends. Dr. Neelima Desai and the organisers discussed the need to set up a center for mentally challenged persons.
"Traffic Awareness Program" was organised at Rajiv Gandhi Intfotech Park, Phase 2 , Wipro Circle , Near Hinjewadi. In this area many vehicles are used for up and down from offices and everyday people face the problem of traffic.
At Navkshitij, we make chocolates, floaters and candles, handmade paper bags (4 sizes), greeting cards, diyas, jewellery including bracelet, ear rings, string of beads etc. and paper lanterns.
