India’s first Centre for Disability Studies inaugurated in Mizoram
India's first Centre for Disability Studies was inaugurated at Mizoram University on Thursday.
Chief Minister Lal Thanhawla inaugurated the centre in the presence of Union Minister of State, Social Justice & Empowerment Krishanpal Gurjar.
The centre is first of its kind in India and is expected to work towards the empowerment of disabled people in the North eastern parts of India.
The lack of facilities and geographical layout of the North eastern states makes life even more challenging for people with disabilities.
Ministry of Social Justice & Empowerment has collaborated with Mizoram University for the setting up of the Centre for Disability Studies.
