To ensure accessible infrastructure in order to empower disabled people. To provide them with education & employment.
70 million disabled people in India cannot step out of their homes because of an inaccessible physical infrastructure and transport system, thus reducing them to an "Invisible minority." They are completely dependent on their families for sustenance and are a burden on society. Accessible infrastructure will empower disabled people by helping to bring them education, employment, and dignity. In spite of the legislation, no serious work has been done to make cities and transport accessible.
Working with key policy-makers, sensitizing them, undertaking research to generate data, advocating & lobbying for appropriate policies, forming partnerships to design accessible infrastructure, and constantly monitoring the status of accessibility.
The outcome will be greater access in the tranport system by building infrastructure and a means of communication (signage system) in public places.
