A social media site for people with disabilities
December 4, 2016
A Class 10 student from Vadodara is all set to launch a website named Divyang Dost this week.
The student, Naman Parikh, says the website is only for people with disabilities.
Parikh, who is a golf and football player, got the idea of designing this website while working as a volunteer with an NGO for people with disabilities.
Through this website, he hopes to create a greater understanding for their needs. The website is open to all to register. On the basis of a user's hobbies, likes, gender, age and city, the website will create random matches between two persons.
For security, Parikh has also added some steps. Any abled person who registers on the website will have to share details of any one identity card issued by the government.
