Special lectures mark Independence Day celebrations at IIMB
“The last twenty years we have been working with Persons with Disabilities, and we see that innovation has made a real difference in their lives. Moreover, a collective effort is a facilitator, whether it is their families, an NGO, a village head and the like, a complete system works in making them self-reliant. Hence, there is a demand to learn how to empower them, and innovation on employability can create magic. Once you can enable a person, sky is the limit,” said Shanti Raghavan, Founder, EnAble India, during a discussion on, ‘India can Lead the World in Support for Persons with Disability’, at IIMB, on 15th August 2022.
