14. General Information about the Organization:-
“Garia Sathi” is devoted to the growth, development and rehabilitation of the children of our society with natural negations and various challenges.
Operating on a very humble level, we are fortunate to receive some invaluable service from some local experts. For a Govt. registered Organization we are now striving towards mass awareness, social support and corporate patronage for our cause.
We intend to drive home in to the minds of the People that these challenges can be made easy to some extent with early detection and proper care and that in no way bad parenting, or evil stars have any influence on these challenged individuals. Our basic premise is to work with and for the under-privileged and the BPL population who constitute the major portion of the rural populace With this awareness mission on hand we are on a fast track to cover whole of Kolkata and aspire to go national down the years.
We have been blessed with a world of colors, fragrances and sounds – and most of us are blessed with the sense to feel and experience these shades of life. But, there are a few whose lives are dark and silent – who are unable to see or feel or hear life as we take for granted. These challenged souls are fighting for a ray of hope – a hope to live!
The pain, the agony and the helplessness of the mentally or physically challenged people are unbearable. Sometime, we, the privileged ones, take pity on them and utter “How sad! God help them” or such similar words of sympathy.
What is really sad is that we fail to understand the challenged – “They need Empathy not Sympathy”.

Garia Sathi – We need YOU to help US help THEM!
The founders at Garia Sathi have been digging deep into their personal pockets to help run a special institute for the challenged people – to give them a life full of dignity, filled with happiness and laughter. This cannot be sustained for long without your help and support. And it would be a great injustice on our part to let down those, whom we promised to help.
We are in dire need of funds.
Our immediate need is a larger place to house our institute, as the present house is unable to accommodate the number of children pouring in for help. Our main objective is to enable the needy and under-privileged children to overcome the disabilities that Mother Nature has thrust upon them. We, at Garia Sathi, need your support to provide that ray of hope and guidance to these children.
We would be ever grateful and appreciate your help in support for this noble cause.
For Garia Sathi
