One key work during fellowship

  • Engaged with differently-abled children who stay in CWSN (Children with Special Needs) hostel. The issues related to disability are rarely discussed in daily lives and are missing from general discourses.

What was done:

  • Spent a lot of time at the hostel to first understand the issues these sections face.
    Establishment of trust between self and children
    The administration was sensitized about the issue.
    Engaged with various stakeholders to spread awareness.


  • Got a new hostel sanctioned under IAP for these children which was urgently needed.
    These sections of society do not figure in general discourse of society and thus working for/with them sensitised me and made me appreciate my life even more.
