Mainstreming the differently abled

The power of difference

There is great power and potential in this small, hyphenated word: differently-abled. In the, lie hidden reserves of great will and indomitable spirit, the very substance that makes us transcend the merely physical world of limitations. It is this conviction that has driven Deepalaya to engage the differently-abled as well as the general community in programmes that change common perceptions and attitudes. These programmes also provide professional care and a range of specific services to the beneficiaries.
