Dr. Braja Vihari Mohanty Memorial Mentally Retarded Benefit Trust was established in 1995 to provide care, schooling, vocational training, and rehabilitation for those affected by mental disabilities in Bhubaneshwar.

Details of their current work and future plans:

  • Residential Care Centre: The Trust operates Residential Care Centres. This is for the poor and destitute differently abled and senior citizens. The NGO has requested The National Trust to support its Samarth Centre at Athagarh, but no funds have been received yet. The Life Long Residential Centre for the differently abled and senior citizens is planned to be shifted from Athagarh to Dorada due to high rent expenses. At Daroda, only moderate and mild mentally challenged persons will be admitted so that the financial position of the organisation can be improved, and land will be procured from either the government or directly from individuals so that the project can be run on a permanent basis. Also, taking into consideration the precarious financial condition of the organisation, the Board of Trustees decided to shut down the Jagruti Centre at Bhubaneshwar for the mentally challenged in April 2015.
  • Vocational Training Centre: For the purpose of teaching courses in typing, tailoring, and English.
  • Establishment of a Rehabilitation Centre: The organisation has plans to construct buildings, hostels, cowsheds, poultry sheds, water tanks, plant trees, and introduce a support staff to maintain the centre.
  • Provision for a Day Care Centre: This is to be constructed for underprivileged children who have not had a formal education. To encourage their further schooling and make sure that they are well nourished.
