Pune youngster with disabilities chosen for UN program
Pune youngster Diksha Dinde, who is 84% physically challenged, has been selected for the United Nations' 'A World At School' program, the only Indian chosen for this honour.
Diksha, who suffers from celebral palsy quadriparesis since birth, works towards educating underprivileged children.
The 23-year-old says she wants to create a world where children were not afraid of going to school. In November 2016, she will visit the United States and share her ideas with ambassadors from other countries. Every year, the UN selects 500 ambassadors from the field of education.
Diskha works with NGO Roshni, which works at improving the health of women and advocates the rights of people with disabilities.
