- Enabled achievers
This year Delhi-based NGO Deepalaya is celebrating 25 years of good work. An educational organisation, set up to teach slum children, in recent years it has developed the objective of developing positive attitudes among parents and communities towards otherwise-talented physically and mentally challenged children. It believes that the way forward for such children is through mainstreaming them to improve their quality of life. Several children have already benefited from Deepalaya’s good works, and four disabled students are featured in Deepalaya’s book of 25 Child Achievers, published in July to celebrate the anniversary. We tell their stories below.
