With the vision of creating a society that respects the right of all people irrespective of their abilities, Muskaan is well known for its pioneering work in the field of providing vocational training and work opportunities to adults with Intellectual Disability. It has emerged as an effective rehabilitation model both nationally and internationally. Parents and professionals from national and international organizations including Europe, USA, Canada, Australia, Mauritius, China, Japan and Afghanistan have visited Muskaan over past few years and appreciated its unique training & employment model for adults with ID.
A Non-Governmental organization, Muskaan supports and inform the families about the condition and raise awareness in society about the disabled, their abilities and their rights. The adult training program started in 1989 covers all the major aspects like Life skills, computer skills, physical fitness, creative self-expression etc for the holistic development of an individual empowering them for life.
MUSKAAN SOCIAL CONSUTING SERVICES (MSCS)
It was observed that close interaction with the students at Muskaan provided an opportunity for individuals to look inwards and be in touch with a part of their empathetic (not sympathetic) and vulnerable self in a manner few other experiences did. Also, there was an element of purity in their expression. And these series of observations led to a path breaking initiative-Muskaan Social Consulting Services was established as a consulting arm of Muskaan to create people development initiatives where interactions were curated between students and corporate executives to create learning experiences around themes such as empathetic leadership, Authenticity, Active Listening, Respecting diversity and so on. It was win-win all the way, with students benefitting from interactions and integration into the outside world. MSCS donated the proceeds of the program to Muskaan the NGO and the founding members found a powerful and meaning way to give back to society as all services were pro bono.
Bhaskar Thyagarajan, a founding member of MSCS, curated these learning experiences by using the power of games as it brought together the students and executives on a common platform in a way no other platform did. BlueSky Learning supports MSCSexperiential learning events and the students with their learning journeysfor successful integration into the corporate world.
