Sethu is a Charitable Trust based in Goa, which helps children get the best out of their lives, as they grow and develop. Sethu's Mission is to be a bridge between children and their families, schools and communities to foster their complete development through assessments, therapy, educational initiatives, training, awareness and capacity building.
The Sethu Trust was formed in June 2005 to provide services for children with developmental, behavioral, emotional and educational challenges. We are committed to the welfare of the young and believe that there is an immense need for a service-based organization for children and their education, development and behaviour. Our conviction is that everyone who cares for children can work together sharing skills and knowledge - this is the bridge that Sethu embodies. It is because children have families, teachers, communities and other supports that Sethu can do its work. When we pool our diverse competencies and resources we can maximize our power to make this world more responsive to all children.
The complex mental health needs of children, their families, teachers and communities can be addressed only through a systematic team approach. Sethu's work with children can be divided into 4 major programs:
The Sethu Centre for Child Development & Family Guidance is the nucleus of most of our activities and a base camp from where we climb our mountains. A multidisciplinary team assesses and manages the children referred with a range of mental health concerns.
Tarang is our resource room, symbolizing our determined and energetic commitment to the promotion of inclusive education for special needs children.
Sethu's work in the community happens through The Outreach Program which focuses on teaching primary level Mathematics and strengthening inclusive practices in more schools in Goa. Through the Universal Active Maths method developed by Navnirmiti in Mumbai, which emphasizes learning by doing, Sethu has been involved in training teachers in Government primary schools in Goa. We facilitate inclusive education by providing technical consultation to schools that share our zeal.
The Training Program is a major area of work. Sethu conducts a wide range of workshops on various topics related to child development and behavior for parents, teachers, counselors and other helping professionals. Gnyandeep, is an annual preschool teachers training course that gives educators knowledge and skills based on a thorough understanding and solid foundation of child development.
