More about the Shelter for Women with Disability

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.

The following are our requirements for now and approx cost details of them:

  1. CCTV Cameras - 1 lakh - money raised and installed
