The Association of People with Disability empowers people with disabilities to live full, productive lives.
Our ‘Life Cycle Approach’ facilitates the social awareness and public infrastructure needed to grant them the independence they deserve at all stages of their life.
We have served over 700,000+ individuals with disabilities through interventions in healthcare, education, employment, and advocacy, and have sensitised over 1,000,000+ people to the cause.
In India, our work adds to the government initiatives and schemes already in place to support those with disabilities. But there is still more work to be done, and you can help us do it.
We are authorised to receive foreign donations under Foreign Contributions Regulation Act (FCRA), registration number 094421352.
