After completing high school, Srinivasan had a dream. He wanted to start a bakery with friends who had learning disorders, just like him.

This is the story of how his mom helped him achieve his dream while also improving and enriching the lives of several adults who didn't think they had a shot at a fulfilling life.

"This is a place where adults from the neighbourhood come in, and then we provide a canopy for them, where the following areas are taken care of – physical, mental, social, psychological and finally the economical aspect," says Sumithra.

Sai Bakery is instrumental in helping these adults advance as individuals. Shoma could hardly use her left hand before coming here but now, she's a pro at crafts.

Sai Bakery doesn't ask for much. All they want is a chance to spread awareness.

As Sumithra says, "Give us a chance. Once a month, give us a table. The group will come put up our products that we make. You don't have to buy because we make thank-you cards and give it to everybody for helping us create awareness and sensitivity."
