SHELTER HOMES HAVE TALENT ?
We'll that's what I too always understood before I started such Homes.
Usually what do you , Yes , you reading this think
” when you hear about SHELTER HOMES FOR THE POOR & HOMELESS WITH DISABILITIES “?
Well Street Providence Goa runs 8 such homes in Goa for the last few years where we have been taking care of the most pathetic & complicated poor goans and homeless people with severe mental & physical disabilities.
Freaking not easy at all.
But the talents are huge in these once so called by many such names as MAD , LOOSE SCREWS , CHARACTERS, NUT CASES , etc
Over last 5 years of consistent care , medication, treatment , counseling, therapy including Occupational & Physiotherapy plus Vocational training and now art & craft classes the RESULTS are beyond my expectations.
I am DUMB FOUNDED at times.
The raw stones are actually uncut diamonds who once polished SHINE.
Once condemned and rejected by society, today these same ladies, will beat hands down , any normal person in their age group with their talent and their determination to perform what is taught to them inspite of them being on Severe psychiatric medications.
I , as the incharge, at the time of deciding the admissions don't look at them as unworthy and useless but i look at them as GOD CREATING NEW THINGS OUT OF NOTHING or GOD HAS THE ABILITY TO create EX NIHILO.
Roman 4 : 17, for those who know.
Attached is picture of needle work & crotchet work done in our Guirim shelter home for women under the guidance and training of an 80 year old NUN , Sr Edith who just loves teaching the ladies all this stuff.
Sr Edith may be 80 years, has the spirit of a 16 year old but she has that determination to bring out the best in these ladies in this home inspite of all odds .
We have employed over the last few months :
☆ Art & craft teacher
☆ Vocational trainer
☆ Occupational therapist
Just to get these women to enjoy their moments rather than staring into space whole day .
Our shelter homes are not old aged homes and there is a big difference in shelter & old aged homes.
If one goes through our face book page
Or our web page www.streetprovidencegoa.com
and spend about 30 minutes, you will see all the smiles on the ladies faces in the 4 homes we run for women & activities that we provide them to keep them SMILING .
Mind you most of them are on psychiatric medication varying between 4 tablets to 12 tablets per day , so not an easy job to get them ti do what they are taught to do.
Challenging , difficult but yet possible.
WE DARE TO DREAM & with ASSURED RESULTS.
This is not for SALE , but we give away as a gratitude to those benefactors who have stood with me right from 2017 when i was new on the horizon and donations were an issue.
From January 2024 , we have huge plans to manufacture on a bigger scale many such items and sell . But for now patience please.
Simply amazing when you see this picture attached with this post.
