Background and Objective: People with disabilities in India are subject to deprivation in many dimensions of their lives. As Rabindranath Tagore rightly said…the problem is not how to wipe out the differences but how to unite with the differences intact. Our objective is to provide support (education, training, employment generation and rehabilitation services) for physically disabled people and help them integrate with mainstream society.
