Samiksha Foundation is a Creative Learning Initiative for children with cancer and their caregivers. It operates two Learning Centres in Bengaluru, and is ready to start a 3rd Learning Center at Bengaluru, India in the next year !
Kapur Ward, Kidwai Memorial Institute of Oncology (SFLC@KMIO)
Since 2009, we have been running a Learning Centre at the Kapur Ward, the paediatric ward of Kidwai Memorial Institute of Oncology, Bengaluru, with around 110 children (inpatients and their siblings) and over 70 caregivers being supported at any given time. Annually, around 800 children are direct beneficiaries of the program.
Mazumdar Shaw Cancer Centre, Narayana Health (SFLC@MSCC-NH)
Since April 2019, we have been running a Learning Centre at Mazumdar Shaw Cancer Centre, Narayana Health City, Dommasandra, Bengaluru, with 35 to 40 inpatients, and day-care children being supported at any given time, along with equal number of caregivers attending. Annually, around 600 children are beneficiaries of the program.
Sri Shankara Hospital and Cancer Research Center (SFLC@SSHCRC)
Following the pandemic regualtions, we have restarted our discussions with the Doctors at Sri Shankara Hospital and Cancer Research Center to set up a new Samiksha Learning Centre at their paediatric oncology area. There are expected to be over 40 children, 40 caregivers, and 20 support staff benefiting from the program here. Samiksha 2.0 pilot will be rolled out here very soon! We call for center coordinators and teachers part time for this in a couple of months!
