Agape Rehabilitation Center in Chennai trains PwDs
August 23, 2017
India has a large number of people who have disabilities. As per data from the World Health Organization, more than 2% of India's population is disabled.
However, the social set up of the country is still not developed enough to talk about disability openly. People tend to avoid talking about disabilities and disabled people.
Various NGOs are working in the field to help disabled people get a chance to live a normal life. Agape Rehabilitation Center in Chennai is a training center which provides computer education to people with disabilities and provides job opportunities to them.
In the past 15 years, the Agape center has given training to more than 250 students.
The students get technical lessons and this also helps them gain confidence and improve their self-esteem.
