shuktara homes for young people with disabilities - Subhash and Raju

Social media brings a smile to Subhash

Sometimes social media can be a wonderful thing.

Shuktara has an account on Instagram @shuktara_homes and there we share various activities and stories from the day to day lives of our young people.

On sharing a short video of Subhash enjoying some Hindi film music, we received a video back from one of our followers and supporters Helen Downie a London based artist who has an account on Instagram @unskilledworker to say hello to Subhash and to say how happy she was to see him.

He was overjoyed to see this and you can see the happiness in his face.

shuktara homes for young people with disabilities - 2017 - 1st July, 18th anniversary of shuktara - Sunil, Pappu and Anna

18th Anniversary of shuktara

shuktara started on 1st July 1999 so yesterday we celebrated our 18th anniversary! Sunil and Anna were the very first young people to come to shuktara on this day.

Today shuktara has two homes where 23 young people live as a family. The original idea was to give young people with disabilities a real home, somewhere they could feel safe and know was their forever home.

Just look at Anna’s smile because that says more than we could ever express in words.
