Physically Challenged

Our goal is to enable, educate, and empower the physically challenged, who are otherwise severely stigmatized, and whose potential is overlooked in many developing nations due to their handicap. These ground-breaking special education programs for the hearing impaired in the Indian Subcontinent have attracted international attention, and promote advocacy, self-esteem, and vocational training for the deaf.
