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!

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 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.

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.

As a Rehab physician i am always looking for ways to help those who are physically challenged. HelpHandicap foundation has been a model non profit organization that serves the needs in this area. The passion to serve in this very challenging area of service and charity is outstanding in its founder member and all those involved with this charity.This is an A+ non profit. I would volunteer and donate to its cause, as i have been, without any hesitation.

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.

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.

I have not come across any other organization that helps the people with disabilities in a way that EquallyAble (HelpHandicap) does. I have personally witnessed the help it provides to the needy with a passionate desire. I would recommend everyone to know more about the worked performed by the organization and support in any way possible.

There are very few organizations working for this specific cause. Taking up this cause to help less able people is a result of determination and huge/sincere commitment. The organization does this with zeal and is present in many community events that helps the deserving and also organize funds. I have known the organizers, both on US (specifically in Michigan area) and India where the organization has effectively worked with many individuals. The direct involvement and sincerity for the cause is noteworthy of the organization.

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.
