Latest Update



On behalf of everyone at Yash Charitable Trust, we would like to thank each and every one of you for your unconditional support and love.


Our fundraiser was started to help us survive the lockdown and thanks to all you wonderful souls, we will be able to get through this year on our feet. The team is happy to be back at work while we slowly and safely settle into the "new normal".


This campaign will close at the end of this month but we will surely be back again soon. As an NGO operating in our country, we will always face certain challenges to maintain our course and stay afloat. So we look forward to you helping and supporting us once more. Thank you and God bless.

Story


Café Arpan was borne out of the generous contributions we received during our first campaign on this platform. We have successfully proven how having persons with disabilities, such as autism and Downs syndrome, as a part of the team is so very valuable to everyone in the workforce. Our team has provided valuable insights into how a meaningful quality of life can be achieved by providing dignity and self-respect that comes with earning a livelihood. In the midst of this very debilitating global pandemic that has significant economic and financial repercussions, we are back now to ask you to support us once again


Our core work over this past year since Café Arpan opened its doors in August of 2018, has been to provide supported employment to all our beneficiaries. Our team works between 30 and 40 hours a week. Based on their interest and skills, each team member is assigned work that they enjoy doing; and just like every other place of work, our entire team receives a cheque every month similar to the support staff who assist them. 


We generate the revenue needed for salaries from running Café Arpan as well as Arpan Food Services. Unfortunately since March 2020, we have had to shut down all operations with no certainty of how and when we can start up again. We are thus struggling to make team payments and need your help at this critical juncture


A few days ago, the government of India withdrew its order that had made it mandatory for employers to pay salary and wages to all its employees during the lockdown. However, we at YCT believe that our responsibility towards our team and the wonderfully caring and compassionate support staff is to assist them through these difficult times.  


Our team has been amazing through this entire lockdown. Every morning is spent doing household chores and in the afternoons we have extended Zoom sessions which are both fun and educational. We make sure our team maintains their emotional connect, while being safe in their own homes. They ALL miss work and the camaraderie that their workplace provides them. 


We do not know what the future will hold, but we do know that we will continue valuing  our hard-working team and will strive to provide them once again the normalcy of meaningful experiences that they so long for.


Please help us keep their normalcy intact.

Our crowdfunding campaign has seen an overwhelming response and we are eternally grateful to all our wonderful contributors for their generosity.


As Covid has continued to cause severe distress everywhere, we are attempting to combat that with using digital platforms to continue our training and therapeutic activities. Therefore we have decided to extend the campaign for a few more weeks so we can attempt to raise funds to meet these costs as well.


However, this time we reach out to you to ask you to please share our cause and campaign with others so we can reach this new goal.


Thank you.

Here's a little teaser trailer of an upcoming film being made on our team by the talented film-maker, Meghna Damani. She has beautifully captured the essence of our work while literally portraying our team members who they are are - special and as capable when included, accepted and given the support they need.
