MATA BHAGWANTI DEVI CHADHA CHARITABLE TRUST was formed in the memory of late Smt. Bhagwanti Devi Chadha, Mother of late Shri. Kulwant Singh Chadha, Ex. Chairman of the Wave Group.
Late Shri. Gurdeep Singh Chadha, a leading industrialist of Northern India and Ex. Managing Director of the Group, is the driving force behind the formation of the charitable trust. He established Mata Bhagwanti Chadha Niketan in July 1999 with the mission to educate and prepare special children to live within the community, having achieved three fold self-dependence, Physical, Social and Financial to the best of their ability.
MATA BHAGWANTI CHADHA NIKETAN is the name of Charitable Special School for Mentally and Physically challenged children - a home for mentally challenged children. It is run by ‘MATA BHAGWANTI DEVI CHADHA CHARITABLE TRUST’. The Niketan is one of the very few private rehabilitation institutions, that doesn’t charge any money for the services provided to the students. The Niketan is fully committed and dedicated for the rehabilitation of children with mental retardation, cerebral palsy, autism and multiple disability. It is trusted that these children should be loved and respected in the society as any other normal child is. Presently the institution provides rehabilitation services to about 200 beneficiaries.
Mata Bhagwanti Chadha Niketan (nick named and popularly known as MBCN) is a pristine experiment in discharge of corporate social responsibility by a flourishing group of commercial companies, called Wave Group. It’s a 100% charitable school for the rehabilitation of very special needs children suffering from congenital, intellectual and physical infirmities or incompatibilities, including cerebral palsy, seizures, mental retardation, visual and hearing impairment, multiple disability and the inability to psychologically interact with the society and the community due to brain development disorders called autism. The Niketan is one of the very few private rehabilitation institutions.
Late Shri. Gurdeep Singh Chadha (popularly known as Ponty Chadha), was naturally enthused towards mainstreaming of the physically and mentally challenged. In spite of his physical constraint he has emerged as a rising star on the corporate canvass of India during the last decade, by sheer virtue of his tenacity of purpose and the will to stand up to difficulties. The Group is led by a young and enthusiastic but God fearing family of Directors. Devotion to spiritual values has fortified the deeply grouted empathy for the physically and intellectually challenged children, and the establishment in 1999 of MBCN by the Chadha Group as a totally charitable and social venture, in the sacred memory of the Grandmother of the Directors – late Smt. Bhagwanti Devi Chadha.
Established initially in a rented building in NOIDA an upcoming industrial suburb of New Delhi, MBCN has been recently shifted to a modern campus and has its own premises spreading over two acres of land on the upcoming eight lane NOIDA – Agra Express Way. MBCN is surrounded by three upcoming international schools which promises an ideally motivated surrounding for the incumbent children. The Wave Group itself has promoted one of these international schools called Genesis Global School adjoining the MBCN spread over an area of 15 acres. Genesis Global School has an avowed mission to provide world class education with international level academic, sports and curricular activities, while at the same time deeply entrenching its education system and curriculum in traditional Indian values and beliefs. One of the main stays of activities in Genesis Global School is compulsory social service by the students, with a prescribed minimum number of hours, which includes studying and contributing socially towards the management of incumbents of MBCN.
