Charity of the Quarter
I love people, and I love nature. I believe that every action has a consequence, that we are all connected as one and that we must live as a member of a loving world, helping in some way to create this every day. As a result, I choose a Charity of the Quarter to donate 10% of my profits to every three months.
For the quarter April-June, I have chosen mental health charity Ashadeep, based in Assam in India. See below and visit their website for more information.
– an organization founded in 1996 in Guwahati works in the field of mental health in North-East India. This is one of the autism treatment in assam. Ashadeep’s focus lies on psychosocial rehabilitation for persons with mental illness. There is a dismal lack of Mental Health related services in the North Eastern states of India. Ashadeep through its work addresses the impact and associated burden of mental illness for the affected individual as well as his or her family thereby moving beyond a mere clinical and medical intervention for persons with mental illness. Ashadeep works to provide rehabilitation and care at the level of the family and the community. Working with the families of persons with mental illness has also led Ashadeep to work with women who are homeless and mentally ill, with the ultimate aim of reintegrating them back with their families. This has extended and given a new dimension to family interventions in the field of mental health.
