Welcome to our website

The biggest joy anyone would get is to see a smile on another person's face. For us, that's a joy we never get tired of. Cause of Our Joy, the name says it all. Lending a helping hand, picking someone up, teaching them a skill, watching them get creative with colours and papers. It's these little joys that keep on going.

At COOJ, we strive to make sure that people walk out of here with their heads held high, that problems cease to be and that spirits stay high. At COOJ, we care...

Web Development India


After completing my school, I joined the J.J. School of Art and I studied for five years before completing my graduation, after which I started working as a commercial artist in an advertising agency. I later went to Dubai for a year and then I came back to Mumbai. I used to drink alcohol regularly and in 1993, I gave up drinking, which was quite tough, and then joined Alcoholics Anonymous. Slowly I started smoking. That was ruining me and I was slowly losing control over myself. I was even shouting at my mother a lot, which is why I went to rehab. Through God's blessing I was able to overcome the habit, although I still in depression. I then joined COOJ and that made me feel much better. Now at the age of 48, I can say that I am feeling happy after joining COOJ, all the sessions we have and the games make me feel like it's my second home. I was given opportunities to revisit art by making paper bags, cards and painting on gift bags etc. I feel nice to say that I like COOJ as it brings me out of my shell.
