Dear Donors, Friends and Well-wishers of The Association of People with  Disability (APD).

Greetings from The Association of People with Disability (APD)!

Thanks to the donations of caring people like you, we are making steady progress in our mission to build an equal and just world for people with disability (PwD).

Last year, we could better the lives of 14,000+ people with disability and reach out to 39,000 stakeholders. The Early Intervention (EI) and Spinal Cord Injury (SCI) Rehabilitation were particularly effective. Nearly 52% of children with disability got enrolled in regular schools and Anganwadis while 1200 SCI-affected PwDs were rehabilitated, including the first batch of 10 women. Furthermore, the EI program was rolled out in 5 districts of North Karnataka. And 5 model schools were opened within existing schools to enable inclusive education.

The Association for People with Disability (APD) is a non-profit organisation based in Bangalore. APD runs the Shradhanjali Integrated School (SIS) since 1973  - that takes in young children with disabilities and transforms their lives.  SIS gives wings to their dreams . SIS has transformed lives of many children &  they have gone on to become successful doctors, IT professionals, engineers and most importantly - Confident and Independent citizens.
