Marham Resonating Resilience works towards autism awareness and inclusion of autistic children while leveraging the power of networking

RELATED POST

Autism is not a disease. Don’t try to cure us. Try to understand us. That is exactly what Marham Resonating Resilience has been seeking to do for the last two years. Founded by Dr. Nabat Lakhani, a Hyderabad-based gynecologist, Marham Resonating Resilience is into autism awareness and working towards their inclusion in every field like education, society, and employment. The non-profit also works in the sphere of maternal mental health, awareness of thalassemia major awareness, and free screening for prevention of breast cancer screening.

THE GENESIS

 Dr. Nabat’s journey began with a simple publication, a platform to amplify the voices of unsung heroes who defied the odds to soar beyond limitations. From autistic marathon champions to thalassemia warriors, each story illuminated the path toward acceptance and resilience. The support poured in from dignitaries and influencers, igniting a flame within Dr. Nabat to champion the cause of autistic children and their families. That’s how Marham Resonating Resilience started in October 2022 in Kompally.

“As I started putting forward their success stories, I received immense support from several VIPs and changemakers including Telangana governor Dr Tamilisai Soundararajan, music composer RP Patnaik, and actor-producer Lakshmi Manchu. I felt that I needed to continue my work and make a difference in many lives, mainly

SUPPORT FROM ALL QUARTERS Dr. Nabat reflects on a pivotal moment when a request for a library in a slum area surfaced. “We immediately turned to our supporters and patrons and brought the library to fruition in record time. It was then that I truly grasped the transformative power of networking and how it can impact the lives of the underprivileged and autistic through collective effort,” she adds with conviction.

Today, Dr Nabat enjoys the support of movers and shakers of the city who volunteer their skills towards Marham. City’s top soft skill trainer Vikita Jain is the COO of the non-profit while oil baron Sohail Hajiani takes care of their finances. Event manager Sahil Bhimani of Namdari Events handles the logistics of Marham’s events.

CORE FOCUS

Marham has expanded its operations to work with Mumbai, Bengaluru, Baroda, and Dehradun student groups. One major project that the NGO is focusing on is to get placements for visually impaired girls trained in breast cancer examination in the city. “While autism is our core focus, we use our resources and good offices wherever possible,” says Dr Nabat.
