What is Handi-Care Intl.???

  • Handi-care is a registered charity created to provide funds for international initiatives, specifically aimed at the poor, the disabled and the rights of women

Until now, the majority of our funds have been donated to international causes. However, we see a need for on ethno-specific initiatives in the GTA.

Handi Care Intl (HCI) has been registered as a Canadian charity since 1992 and is completely administered by volunteers.

  • Office space and all administration hours donated. 

  • The organization is supported by a host of enthusiastic, dedicated and committed volunteers, which, in turn, has enabled HCI to consistently disburse in excess of 90% of the funds it has raised directly towards charitable activities

  • Since HCI is a registered charity, tax receipts are issued for all donations

  • HCI conducts Annual Fund Raising events, apart from sustained commitments from kind hearted, empathetic persons in the community

  • Our Fund Raising events are also activities specifically geared towards "Raising Awareness" in the community and motivating our youth members to encourage greater participation

  • What motivated us to start Handi- Care Intl. in the first place?

  • “Physical disability is NOT a deterrent to achieving ones goal in life.” is what we learnt from 2 gentlemen who run “Amar Seva Sangam” from their wheel chairs.

Our Visionaries

The building blocks of Amar Seva Sangam -

an institute that is dedicated to Shelter, Education, Rehab & Vocational Training of rural poor & disabled


Handi care international

Ramakrishnan, rendered quadriplegic at age 21, after a fatal accident, decided  that he would NOT let his life go waste and would do everything  possible to help disabled children in his village. Supported by his family & friends, he Started ASSA in 1981, the Year of the Disabled.

  • Sankara Raman, confined to a wheel chair from childhood with Muscular dystrophy, is a brilliant Charted Accountant who had a flourishing practice by age 25. As a devout social reformer, having faced & successfully overcome several challenges, he decided to join Mr. Ramakrishnan to make a dream come true. Giving up his practice, he joined ASSA in 1991, only to revolutionize the entire rural community.

New Initiatives

These include placing interested students as volunteers in some of our organizations in India.

Both the volunteers and the charities benefit from this opportunity. (The volunteers gain excellent experience and the charities get new ideas to help in the development of their beneficiaries)

We are now looking to expand our services to the local arena to help those in our own community with disabilities.
