Om Creations Trust was established to give professional training and support to mentally challenged girls with Down's syndrome and other related disabilities thereby empowering them to lead as normal a life as possible. Their activities serve as therapy and a means of earning a consistent livelihood in an environment sensitive to each individuals special requirements. Om Creations Trust currently employs 66 beneficiaries and operates out of three centres in South Mumbai. They manage a portfolio of over 150 products in the arts and over 100 catering products. Beneficiaries are allotted activities to develop their weaknesses and draw upon their strengths.

Some of their 2012-13 activities were as follows:

  • Art as Healing: Trained staff teach differently abled beneficiaries to work with multiple media, such as paper, fabric, canvas, clay, ceramics and wood. The process begins with design, product sampling, and sourcing of raw material to fabricating, finishing, quality control, pricing, packaging and marketing. Om Creations has just built a kiln for ceramics on site. Professional artists mentor beneficiaries and their work is then displayed in art galleries to an encouraging response from viewers and buyers.
  • Soul Food: Beneficiaries receive hands on, intensive training in the hospitality and catering unit at S.P.J. Sadhana School and are then involved in the catering section of Om Creations. The kitchen is now fitted with state-of-the-art equipment and a separate space for cold storage. Beneficiaries are committed to the highest standards of hygiene and quality in accordance with their food license from the Bombay Municipality. Encouraged by corporate and individual buyers, Om Creations created a brand for its chocolates and was launched with a unique logo and packaging from their own arts department. Om Chocolates has achieved sweet success with sales over 3,500 kilos by 2011.
  • Learning Community: Om Creations is a second home for beneficiaries, staff and volunteers. The staff and volunteers are aware of each beneficiary’s medical history and behaviour patterns. Close interaction and observation allows the staff to perceive mental, physical and emotional stumbling blocks for beneficiaries and handle them in a sensitive manner for the progress of each beneficiary.
