Message from Jidnyasa Kubde Chawaldhal

My experience of the last thirty years, being myself disabled, working in the field of Disability, makes me believe that journey of life is from disability to disability and that disability is situational. As such disability is a social responsibility. Societal inclusion for people with disability, including in education, employment and access to technology is mutually beneficial. In a supportive and accessible social environment, disability turns into an asset. 

It is no more a burden, it is rather a skill and expertise and should be viewed as strength. People with visible and less visible disabilities need to be empowered with education, skill training and access to technology, so that they feel fulfilled by becoming socially active and contributing members of society.
