Challenge

Government of India has passed a new Act named as Rights of Persons with Dis ability 2016. This Act promises to ensure non discrimination, diversity, equal opportunity, accessibility and respecting the capacities of PWD's The PWD's that we have selected are economically poor and subject to exploitation. The young population has no access to information, vocational skills and livelihood opportunities, Most of them are engaged either in low paying jobs or exploited within the community.
