Aastha Centre for Mentally Challenged
‘Aastha’ is a residential and institutional campus for mentally challenged located in Bavla, 30min drive from Ahmedabad, Gujarat.
The idea was to move away from the ghetto style provision of hostels and provide a homely environment where the inmates feel they are getting to stay in small bungalows which they can call their own.
The campus will provide for all activities surrounding the development of a home for a mentally challenged person like dedicated dining areas, toilet training areas, recreational and sport facilities and workshop facility for vocational training along with homely accommodation for almost 200 inmates. The staff is provided for in-house which will help maintain the standards as well as safety.
