Around 100 persons with disabilities took part in the NCPEDP’s National Convention of Youth with Disabilities supported by Accenture in Delhi recently.
As many as 65 young disabled students from top colleges and universities shared their stories of discrimination, exclusion and dreams in the event.
Disabled students said that colleges and universities must provide accessible facilities such as Braille printers, accessible libraries, supportive professors and wheelchair access to assist people with disabilities.
The conference had speakers from the disability sector such as Ummul Kher, Ankit Jindal, Member, National Committee of Rights of Persons with Disability (NCRPD), Sachin Singh, Instructor, Indian Sign Language Research and Training Centre, and Sagar Baheti, the first blind Indian runner to complete Boston Marathon.
