Roshni Association was founded in 2001 by Shahida Perveen, Pakistani, and her husband Hamid Hannesen, German. The aim was to combine the meeting of the Orient and the Occident with an appropriate perspective of people with disabilities and special needs. Roshni Association is currently running two projects, Roshni Village and Green Earth Roshni School, to support the neglected areas of care for special persons and education to village children, respectively, in our society.
Roshini Organic Bakery: The bakery offers various types of whole grain bread and pastries. It uses organic raw material and avoids the use of chemical additives and artificial flavours. The whole process of baking, starting from milling the grain into flour, to freshly baked bread, is done entirely with the involvement of special persons. They help the workshop in-charge in measuring the ingredients according to the recipes, oil the moulds, clean and grind dry fruit, cut breads and pack them etc. This experience is an important part of their overall learning process.
