Igniting Dreams


Igniting Dreams - An education sensitization program to empower differently abled children to pursue professional careers.

Speakers:

• Dr. Suresh Advani - Renowned Oncologist from Mumbai, who was affected by Polio and uses a wheelchair. Recipient of Padma Bhushan, Dr. B. C Roy National award, Padmashri and many more. • Ashwin Karthik - India’s first BE graduate with Cerebral Palsy (Quadriplegic). • Dr. Charudatta Jadhav - Heads innovations and Inclusive Design group at TCS. • Madhavi Latha Prathigudupu - President of the Wheelchair Basketball Federation of India (WBFI), • Divyanshu Ganatra - An entrepreneur who runs an adventure sports company.

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.
