I have seen the dedication of the founder / president of this organization since 2001. He has lead this organization with extreme passion and empathy for the disabled poor from all over the world. His support model is so effecient and effective that there is hardly any chance of misuse by any of the benefeciaries. This organization has grown multiple folds over the years and still I see its member are as hungry to grow and expand as they were when they had their humble beginings.

This is one of the dedicated organization for helping disabilities to aquire their fullest capabilities to support themselves. I believe by giving money for the needy and walk away from that is easy but to know their pains help them and get disabled peoples on their way to achieve success happiness will be difficult and this is what this organization is doing. Also I would go to any extent to help this organization and I wish God grant all the success to this organization.

This organization has a clear focus. It is applicant centered and does its utmost to ensure that deserving candidates get all the help possible. The fundamental philosophy here is not to generate sympathy for the cause . Instead the idea is to ensure that people with special needs who are willing to do their best , get all the encouragement. Economic independence of the individual applicant is identified as the solution to the issue. The organization uses all means at its disposal to help the individual achieve this goal.
