About the founder
Renuka Tandon, the founder of Thrills n Trails stays with her family in India. Her younger child is non-verbal, on the Autism Spectrum, and has an unrelated genetic condition.
The Covid pandemic (and the resultant stay-at-home situation) in the past one and a half year has magnified a crucial problem….while most people who are stuck at home are able to fill their day with their work or hobbies, individuals with special needs, especially children, usually need to by guided through their activities – THROUGHOUT THE DAY!
More often than not, they lack the creativity and imagination to live their lives with meaning, purpose, and variety.
It is often left to the caretakers (usually, parents or siblings) to find out the ways and means of providing these people with a wholesome life experience.And while most of the time, they manage to do so, caring for special needs individuals day in and day out, can be an emotionally draining experience. Especially considering that they have their own lives to lead, jobs to do, and interests to pursue.
Furthermore, there aren’t too many opportunities – whether online or offline – for special needs folks to socialize and mingle as neurotypical people do. They (and their families) tend to get left out at most mainstream public events like stage shows, movies, literature events, and so on.
Thus was born an idea to provide special needs individuals and their families with a space to unwind, relax, learn, grow or experience exciting and stimulating events….while bonding and creating enduring social networks with one another!
Renuka was born in Mumbai, India. While she is a post-graduate in STEM, she found her calling years later when she chase to study Human Rights. Her other interests include caring for Mother Earth, travelling, and writing.
