Support Group


Atmaja originated with the idea that adoptive families often need to discuss their particular problems and experiences with others who have similar experiences.  We also felt that it is healthy for our children to meet other adopted children, so that they know that they are not “strange” or “weird”.  Thus many activities that Atmaja organises are social gatherings such as picnics, outings to the zoo, film shows or just occasions to meet and chat while the children play.  We also have interactions with counsellors on “Better Parenting”  and other issues.  A list of such activities include:

We also maintain Office Hours every Friday from 6.30 to 8.30 pm at 28 Ballygunge Gardens, Kolkata where many people come and visit, often with their children.
