Rotary ASHIA residential rehabilitation centre for the differently abled is the flagship project of Rotary Club of Ooty Town. It was in the year 2011, the then District Collector of Nilgiris, Mrs Archana Patnaik I.A.S., handed over the running of the District Mentally Retarded Home to our Club. We took over the responsibility for running the place in the month of July 2011. At that point of time, our club strength was about 22 and we under the guidance of the Charter President took up this noble work with the hope that the Almighty will help us in this cause. We renamed the place as Rotary ASHIA. It gives us immense pleasure that we have been successful in running this home since then, making consistent improvements, with the support of the general public who have been generous in their contributions towards the home. We are and will always remain indebted to each and every donor. We are also indebted to the present District Collector, Dr P. Sankar I.A,S., for his continued guidance and constant motivation. We like to express our appreciation and gratitude to the officials, staff and the corporators of the Udhagamandalam Municipality for their help in varied ways. We thank the Electricity Department TANGEDCO and their staff for their help and priority. Each and every member of the Staff led by the Manager Mr Johnson, deserve all credits towards the successful running of the Rotary ASHIA Home. Last but not the least, the current members of the Rotary Club of Ooty Town need to be acknowledged for their unflinching support towards this project.
