Sethu (http://www.sethu.in) is a charitable trust committed to the development of children, based in India’s smallest state of Goa, just south of Maharashtra. Since its inception 11 years ago, Sethu has grown from an idea to an organic vibrant center that strongly believes that every child, despite whatever challenges they may face deserves to reach their full potential.
Sethu's multi-disciplinary team works with children with a range of developmental, emotional, learning and behavioural challenges by building bridges of hope and understanding between child, family, teachers and society. Children between the ages of 0 – 19 years old come to the center, which is currently a rented residential house, for initial testing and assessment followed up by a comprehensive intervention plan. This often involves school and home visits as well as sessions with our professional staff for remediation, speech and language therapy, behaviour therapy and counseling. In 11 years over 6000 children have benefited from Sethu's services. Regular workshops and training programs for parents and teachers help build capacity in people who are directly connected with children. Sethu also advocates for children with autism and other disabilities.
Sethu is now seeking help for their ‘Build Our Bridge’ campaign to raise funds to build a state-of-the-art customised center to reach out to many more children and families, conduct training programs and become a resource centre for child development and behavior for the Konkan region in India. Sethu invites you to be generous and support this cause to ensure that all children have the chance they deserve to be proud of their place in our society as respected young global citizens. When you support the Build Our Bridge campaign you are not just donating but investing in children who need you on their side.
