In 1997, a parent of an autistic adult offered his garage in Mumbai to a small group of people who came together to provide vocational training to 16 autistic adults through their own creative abilities.
Experimentation with Products
In the early days Shraddha experimented with producing simple grocery bags and garbage bags made from newspapers.
We Grew In Many Ways
Since then Shraddha has grown to impact the lives of more than 55 autistic and mentally challenged adults, giving them a chance at employment, a taste of independence, and a sense of belonging. The number of teachers, volunteers, support staff and care workers has grown steadily too. Currently we operate out of the 8 rooms across two floors of Mahalaxmi Municipal School.
Beauty and Sustainability
Over the years the product line has refined, developed and expanded to include a wide range of exquisitely designed and internationally appreciated eco- friendly products. ‘Soul Serve’, Shraddha’s unique line of leak-proof, eco-friendly dinnerware, is hundred percent biodegradable and is painstakingly crafted onsite using special machine presses.
Shraddha undertakes customized orders for corporate gifts, weddings & special occasions.
