The thought behind “Navchetna Society” was to create independence in the lives of persons with disability and to make a secure place in the society where persons with disability can live free with minimum barriers and maximum acceptance.
After a successful workshop in Hoshiarpur, we realized that there is lack of awareness among the people of Hoshiarpur. Also there is limited resources and services for children with special needs.
On 5th of September’2011, we opened an institution to facilitate services to every kind of condition or disability.
This Institute was started only with three kids and three professionals. And now as on till date we facilitate our services to more than 60 students every month.
Since 5th September 2011 Navchetna has achieved a lots of milestones:
