One motivating story is all that is needed to create a ripple effect. So it is that the success story of one specially-abled person that ignites hope in thousands of others who might have lost confidence or have low self-esteem.
With this belief we are supporting people of all ages in developing adequate opportunities and means for persons with disabilities, helping them live life to the fullest by developing their skills, capacities and by enabling them to realize their potential and latent talents. We have supported more than 6,900 specially abled individuals through this initiative. While working with underprivileged people with disabilities, we realized that every such person is special and talented, and all they need is an opportunity to fulfil their potential. Under Project Enable, we create an inclusive and motivating environment, improved opportunities to become financially self-reliant and encourage sporting culture for our specially-abled compatriots
The major intervention is focused at people who suffer from physical impairments, physical limitations and participation restrictions, or have a problem in body function or structure. All such individuals receive necessary diagnosis, laboratory tests, corrective surgery, plastering, medicines, artificial limbs, crutches, wheel chairs and other such aids that may help in reducing the everyday stress from their lives.
In association with our partners, we make special efforts in skilling specially-abled individuals in trades that ensure placement. In the last few years, hundreds of individuals with various physical challenges including blindness, hearing and speech impairment and other such disabilities have been skilled and are gainfully employed.
Support to para athletes under the project has ensured that the country has had its largest-ever medal hauls at Rio Paralympics 2016, World Para Athletics Championships London 2017, the Asian Youth Para Games 2017 in Dubai and 3rd Asian Para Games 2018 at Jakarta, Indonesia. Each of our participating players has their own inspiring story of overcoming their physical and mental challenges and competing with the best in the world.
