Towards a barrier free and Inclusive society

The Disabled / Differntly abled are a Human resource and not a liability as is commonly percieved..

According to the National Centre for Promotion of Employment for Disabled People (NCPEDP), less than 1% of differently-abled children in India receive any kind of education.

It is not only a matter of deep concern but shame that a nation, 5.6% of whose population is estimated to be differently abled—the 2001 census put the number at two crore—has failed to address this group’s needs.
