Started by a group of like-minded people to help parents & youngsters with different disabilities, with the required rehabilitation services. Group of 10 trustees consisting of parents and corporate experts guide the activities of the centre- rehab, finance and admin.
Starting initially with one center in Chembur, the organization grew fast as per the needs of other suburbs like Powai, Thane & Gorai. With our own building coming up in Airoli, these all have been consolidated in this building , since 2016. One Community based Rehab centre is retained in Powai - GODS' HEAVENS. It is a unit which concentrates on Early Childhood Development & Prevocational Training.
Most of the students are from underprivileged background.
The Foundation now provides services to more than 150 Beneficiaries who are affected with various types of Disabilities.
A Chartered Accountant cum Cost Accountant by profession, Mr. Balasubramanian worked in many reputed Organisations such as Union Carbide, ICI, Ashok Leyland, and Smith Kline Beecham. His last position was that of an Executive Board Director of Finance & Systems in Times Of India Group.
Driven by a strong will to give back to the Society, Mr. Balasubramanian took a Voluntary Retirement and started MBA Foundation to serve the differently-abled Persons with Rehabilitation Care Services – Training, Occupation and Residential Life Care. The Foundation was started in 2002.
Meenakshi Balasubramanian is M.com and B.Ed. by qualification. She has been associated with the Rehabilitation work for more than 30 years. Working at the Spastics Society of India, Mumbai since 1992, as Executive Director- Training , she found the urgent need for a total road map towards “a Life with Self Esteem and Dignity” for people with disabilities. Thus she founded MBA Foundation in 2002, with solid support of her husband, Balasubramanian.
Her non-compromising attitude towards quality of work has resulted in great appreciation for the work done by MBA Foundation in the field of Integrated Rehab Services for Persons with Disabilities. This is evident in the demand for its services in this direction from distant parts of India.
