Navkshitij was established to improve the well-being of mentally challenged friends – Navkshitij take them under their wing, organize activities, teach them life skills and vocational skills, encourage them to become as independent as possible, and nurture them in a compassionate environment.
The idea of Navkshitij took shape while planning and organizing a walkathon from Pune to Lonavla, for mentally challenged friends. Dr. Neelima Desai and the organisers discussed the need to set up a center for mentally challenged friends. Navkshitij was established on November 27, 2003, the day of the walkathon. Initially, there was a setup of day care center. In June 2007, Navkshitij became a residential facility. Currently they have a total of 50 mentally challenged friends living with them for life in Marunji campus along with 44 Staff members.
