Story of my life: Om Creation, NGO for special children, Know How she started


I am Dr. Radhike Khanna. I have been working with the area of disability for the last 31 years primarily helping children with the intellectual disabilities to make life of their own, a good livelyhood program is what we offer at Om Creations Trust. There was really nothing for these girls They either they tied up at home or kept at home and very often the special need girls were put to sleep It was a huge challenge when after on the completion of my doctorate I decided to have a business enterprise for the young adult everybody discouraged me so much so of a philanthropist said to me I think you should hang accross like Mother Teresa. Girls cannot earn and specially not mentally handicapped but today that is a reality we have young women earning and successfully participating in the various aspects in their home and contributing at home with their pay-packets that they get. I enjoy and also I get satisfaction because I get monthly salary. Happiness! Maaza! Dhamal! Experience! and patience! All the things that you see that made at Om Creations Trust are where their abilities can shine It could be in visual arts area or it could be the catering area, the ceramic, the die and paint area in the 3D model area, wherever they excel, whatever they can do well is what we exploit the talent to give them a place in society. There are very seldom times you are really low because everytime when you see a smile may be you see 10 smiles on their faces you just rejuvinated. I am Dr. Radhike Khanna and this is Om Creation’s Story.
