Sometimes we don’t encounter problems; rather problems find some of us who have the vision and a resolve to make the world a better place. Something similar happened when Prateek and Prarthana working on an event with blind kids had to struggle in order to arrange apt gifts for them. The immediate question that struck them was what if a sighted person needs to give a card to a blind. If a sighted gives him card with words that a blind can’t read, He will have to take help from someone. What if a blind has to gift a card to a sighted, again take help? Why not have a greeting card which can be read by both of them, which is in Braille and in language which a sighted can see. Also through their experience of working with blind in past they thought a blind might relate to music so why not search for few musical instruments etc but then the thought came was not necessary that all blind would connect to music. This moment of realization and a vision to bridge this gap led to this initiative known as GiftAbled Foundation.
When we think about making a difference to the disabled, we usually think about their education, jobs and career. But ‘GiftAbled Foundation’ is a different approach that has thought about Disability from the emotional front as well.
