Kashmiri youth uses disability to inspire & educate kids
Nearly 20 years ago, Javed Ahmed Tak, was shot in the spine by militants who came to his house after he refused to join them. Tak, who was 20 years old at the time, was left paralyzed and since then has been in a wheelchair.
Instead of cursing his fate, he inspires hundreds of wheelchair-bound children like him. He started an NGO called Humanity Welfare Organization Helpline that educates children with disabilities.
Alongwith 13 teachers, the NGO educates 65 children who have suffered severe injuries due to militancy and offers them hope.
