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.
It is hard to say goodbye to a person who has been less of a family member and brother of all special friends of Navkshitij. We are definitely worried about how the special friends will take it when a colleague like you leaves.
