WHO ARE WE ?
Prajñādhara is a division of Snehadhara Foundation (SF) , a registered non-profit organization based in Bangalore. SF is the only organisation in the country that works using Arts Based Therapy as a primary methodology in working with children and adults with disabilities.
The ambit of Snehadhara’s mission encompasses working with children across disabilities and across age groups using the Arts (Direct Care); co-creation of empathetic learning spaces in schools, colleges, corporates and the community (impART); as well as certification for Arts Based Therapy to construct a facilitation model for learning and inclusion (Prajnadhara).
Prajñā means wisdom and translates into realizing or perceiving the true nature of reality; seeing things as they are, not as they appear. The twin goals of Prajñādhara are Arts Based Therapy (ABT) Certification and Study of the Mind.
