      Kshitij is a Mumbai-based NGO that engages with adults having intellectual challenges due to Autism, Brain Damage and Down Syndrome. It assists such intellectually challenged adults or wards develop vocational skills to live their life independently and with dignity.

      Apart from providing vocational training, Kshitij focuses on holistic development of the wards through therapeutic, creative and physical interventions and activities.

      Founded in 1997 by four mothers, ‘Kshitij’ has evolved into a strong support to families of such adults and it continues to strive for enhancing their emotional health, self-esteem and inclusion in mainstream society. Kshitij works to achieve many of these objectives by providing them a learn and earn environment. Kshitij now has 25 adults who are gainfully engaged in making handicraft products and confectionery items under the supervision of trained staff and are also provided support to help them to be self-reliant, independent and contribute to the family and society in their own way.
