Why disability is worth a thought?

People with disabilities are among the most marginalised groups in the world. Such people have poorer health outcomes, lower education achievements, less economic participation and higher rates of poverty than people without disabilities. Society fails to accept and accommodate all its members. People with impairments are disabled by society in the sense that they are deprived of their rights and opportunities.

These barriers can be overcome, if governments, non-governmental organisations, professionals and people with disabilities and their families work together.

Cheshire Home India- Delhi Unit is one such organisation that works towards changing the mindset of society and providing a sense of equality to people with disabilities by promoting mainstreaming and inclusion.

It is rare to inspiration at a place which is supposed to be without hope but I return today inspired, humbled, energised to do more for those who don’t even or can’t even ask for help.
