Open House for Parents / Educators / Caregivers of Children with Specific Learning Disabilities

Children with learning disabilities (LD) see, hear and understand things differently. This leads to problems with learning new information, skills and putting them to use. The common types of LD involve problems with reading, writing, maths, reasoning, listening and speaking. The most important thing to remember is that most children with LD are just as smart as every other child. They just need to be taught in ways that are tailored to their unique learning styles.

Meeting: Saturday, 14 November 2015 from 10.00 am - 3.00 pm
Venue : The Viveka Centre for Emotional Support, # 3271, 11th Main, HAL 2nd Stage, Bangalore 560038 
Contact No: +91 80 6533 0387 (between 5.30 to 7.30 pm, Monday through Thursday)
Open House for: Parents, educators and caregivers

Support Group for Adoptees

Teenagers and young adults who have been adopted often benefit from sharing their thoughts and feelings with others like them. Even in families that communicate well, children and young people do not always want to share their feelings or reveal their vulnerabilities. Some adoption agencies and others have groups available for families. In our experience at Viveka, however, we have seen that many parents and young people do not access these and reach out to us for support. From this expressed need, we are offering a self-help support group for adoptees. The group of teenagers and young adult adoptees will meet and offer emotional support and practical help for concerns that are common to all members. 

For more information, please contact: +91 80 6533 0387 (between 5.30 to 7.30 pm, Monday through Thursday)

10th Anniversary Celebrations


Viveka celebrated its 10th Anniversary by organising a fundraising dinner at the Royal Orchid Hotel. It was well attended with over a hundred guests, including volunteers, their families and invitees. Three prominent individuals from within the social sector in Bangalore and close friends of Viveka were felicitated for their contribution at the event. This included Nandana Reddy, Founder and Director Development from The Concern for Working Children, Dr Ashok Rau, Founder of Freedom Foundation and Gurmeet Singh Randhawa, Managing Trustee of Bangalore Hospice Trust - Karunashraya. This was followed by an entertaining performance by India's only partially visually impaired English stand-up comic, Sundeep Rao.
