Independent Life Skill Lab

Project Proposal

Independent Life Skill Lab - New Project


Shristi wants to build Independent life skill lab consisting of 2 studio apartments. In this lab, individuals with special needs will reside for a specific period of time while they are taught to live independently. This Lab will also be used for accommodating out-station individuals with special needs and their families for short periods (which could range from atleast a week and extend upto a month) during their initial consultation with Shristi.


Shristi plans to start construction of Life Skill Lab after completing construction of Diagnostic Center in March 2014 and plans to complete the construction by Jan 2015. The architectural plan is complete. Again the start and completion of this construction is dependent on the funding situation. Shristi is actively reaching out to many donors and organizations for funding this construction.
