This fundraiser aims to change that for the women at our Shelter.
We are staring a fundraiser for the purchase of a fully Accessible and Disabled Friendly Van that can transport women and their wheelchairs without any difficulty. The van will be fitted with a hydraulic lift that will take the wheelchair user into the vehicle without having to go up and down the steep steps in a bus/van.
We are also planning to install a bio-toilet inside the van for use during long journeys and during para-sports events.
What is a "Better World"? A world without barriers - both physically and challenging the human spirit. A Better World is a World for ALL.
Our core beliefs are that an inclusive, accepting and opportunity-giving world is a better world. We strive to provide the same at our Shelter for Women with Disabilities.
Situated in Chennai and catering to around 60 women with disabilities at a time, we have been providing a safe space for young women with a range of disabilities from extremely disadvantaged situations coming from all over Tamilnadu. Our aim is to enable them to live independently, to contribute to society and to make a family for themselves.
Our women live with all kinds of disabilities - locomotor, speech and hearing impairment, visual impairment, burns, mental health, and multiple disabilities among others.
