Request you to please inform any student of yours who is physically differently abled from class 7 to 12. Please inform their parents and teachers as well. When the differently-abled children interact with these inspiring people they will have an aspiration to dream big and know that they too can pursue professional courses. As a follow-up to this, we will be selecting students for mentorship and scholarship programs and hand hold them through their journey of professional education.
We hope you will join us in building a country where the differently abled people are equal contributing forces to our society, to build a society where people are empowered to live a life of their choice.
