I remember the times when EquallyAble used to be a small organization, trying to get its message out. I have seen EquallyAble grow and make several changes for the better, such as the change of the name in 2009, and the decision to work in the US as well as in India simultaneously. I feel a deep sense of pride now that I know that EquallyAble is one of the top rated Disabilty Awareness Campaigns in the US, having seeing it grow since the beginning. Keep it up, EquallyAble!

This groups committment to helping the disabled in India and to increase awareness in the USA is commendable. This group could very easily focused on their own issues, but have chosen instead to use their resources to help others. The program is very focus on maximizing the ability of those with disabilities.

There are very few organizations who are focused on very special and unique need of humanity. I am very impressed with this organizations vision to empower physically challenged fellow humans. Recently this organization is working towards providing awarness among people about various options and rights of physically challenged people in the society. I wish all success for their good cause.

I am deeply impressed by the President of EquallyAble (was Helphandicap Foundation) for his dedicated & steadfast efforts at educating our community on issues faced by handicapped in our society. Each year he visits us to raise funds for his organization. Over time, he has demonstrated what just ONE dedicated voice can do to bring about a positive change in society. I found their accounting & record keeping very meticulous & impressive - even more impressive were the results - making productive & proud citizens out of people easily neglected by society.
