August 25, 2017
A development campaign has been launched in India for the disabled people of the country.
The development campaign is called 'Development4All' and aims to promote the full inclusion of people with disabilities.
Australian High Commissioner to India, Harinder Sidhu launched the campaign on Wednesday as a part of the Direct Aid Programme.
In 2016-17 the Direct Aid Program had provided support to ten disability-inclusive projects across India.
The campaign will focus on finding ways to make people with disabilities a part of the economic development.
As per the 2011 Census of the country, there are 27 million Indians with disabilities which is more than the population of Australia.
'Development4All' is an initiative of the Australian Government's Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade with the support of Samarthanam Trust For Disabled.
