If lucky, the only resource a person with disability has access to is special education or vocational training. Unfortunately, despite this, the employment rate for disabled people is alarmingly low and is lower for those with an intellectually disability. We have created a parallel system, out of support and love that helps us bypass the difficulties. The highlight of our journey has been the incredible transformations in our community members, the acceptance shown by their families and the involvement by people from neighbouring villages.

The mechanics of the venture works in a way that once the land reaps the harvest, Sristi village buys the stock from ‘Thulir’ itself, making us their first client. We are confident this initiative will instil immense self-belief in our community members and prepare them to be a part of the main-stream society in the future.
