We have always believed that there are  NO BOUNDARIES FOR CHANGE”……………
Today these boundaries extended further till Japan.
We had students visiting us. They got interested in our activities  after listening to volunteers from Japan (AISEC), who had spend some time at our centre earlier.
They had come to explore possibilities of future volunteer exchange program with our organization…..
After they left, we received a mail from them. We feel like sharing the same with you:-
“ Dear Ranjan Dhar
Thank you for inviting us to your office.
Your concept is so smart, and important in not only in India but also in Japan.
So, I think that some Japanese students want to work in Shafa Home.
If there is a student to work, aiesec will send messages to you.
Good Luck! ”

Hope this conveys their experience at Shafa………………….

We at Shafa Home always believed to keep every new day as a challenge. Residents loose their zest if new ways and means are not adopted everyday. Here to keep it lively and interesting, Shafa introduced Dance and Theater as a treatment modality to convey feelings and emotions.

Theater is also used at Shafa as a treatment modality......
Reader may think that this is being done to keep them busy. Our aim is not even to make them as Shahrukh Khan or Amitabh Bachchan either, we want them to understand how to use their body to express their feelings of pain, shame, guilt, anger, hurt, fear, happiness etc......
