 “There is a prerequisite for change in the attitude of people which should begin from the families of the differently abled people. It will help them build self-confidence and help them achieve whatever they want,” said author and educationist, Padma Bhushan MB Atherya. He was speaking at the third national conference on disability held in New Delhi on November 17.

The agenda of the conference was “inclusion on empowerment”.
Giving an example of the Lemon Tree, Atherya said, “Lemon tree has around 15% of its workforce which is physically challenged or has other disability. The case study of Lemon tree will help in encouraging other corporate to give employment opportunity to the disabled group.”
Meanwhile, people from corporates, NGOs and government officials also participated in various panel discussions.
Discussions were held on how the corporate social responsibility (CSR) can empower differently abled, corporate initiatives for the career growth of the PwDs, sensitising people etc.
The event was organised by Sarthak Educational Trust which is engaged in the effort of mainstreaming persons with disability through our intervention and support to varied age groups and varied disability categories.
