Our goal is to train, equip and empower the people with disabilities to live independently, and at the same time advocate for equal rights and opportunities for them. We strive toward creating awareness so that the general public will have the right perspective toward disability and people with disabilities, and hence able to help transform the society to allow full inclusion and participation at every possible level by the disabled people.
