ABOUT US

“EKATWAM”, an NGO working for People with Epilepsy, was founded in 2013 by a group of
committed people engaged in treatment of Epilepsy, Persons with Epilepsy, their caregivers,
and well-wishers.

Dr Manjari Tripathi, Prof of Neurology, AIIMS Delhi has been it’s President since inception and
is the driving force behind the various activities undertaken by EKATWAM.

Other eminent Governing Body Members include Dr P Sarat Chandra, Prof of Neurosurgery,
AIIMS Delhi and Ms Shivani Wazir Pasrich, Actor-Model-Anchor-Dancer-Compere & Former
Miss India Worldwide.

Epilepsy affects more than 50 million people worldwide, of which more than 12 million
people are in India alone. Despite such a high prevalence, the awareness concerning epilepsy
in India is quite low. This lack of awareness further perpetuates the already existing stigma
around epilepsy, as persons with epilepsy face discrimination and harassment for education,
employment, and marriage. Hence, with the aim of making a difference in the lives of persons
with epilepsy, “EKATWAM” (an NGO), was founded in 2013. In the last 10 years, EKATWAM
has provided free medicines to hundreds of poor patients, provided financial aid for surgeries
to patients who could not afford the same, assisted patients in getting treatment at AIIMS
Delhi, organized events to create awareness about Epilepsy and support group meetings for
persons with epilepsy and their care givers.
