I extend my warm wishes to you for a healthy and joyous New Year! This is the time of the year when all of us resolve to identify new goals.
At the Foundation, our focus area for 2019 is to create consciousness and work towards empowering Persons with Disabilities.
Let me introduce you to Firoz Malik. He is the son of a labourer who lives in East Delhi, Seelampur. Firoz was born deaf and had little access to Education. Both Firoz and his parents knew that as long as they are alive, they would take care of Firoz. Their concern was what will happen to Firoz after them. It was then that he enrolled himself in the Hospitality course from Delhi SMART+ centre.
Today, Firoz works as a Wishmaster-Delivery Executive and mimes ‘I never thought of being an employee of such a big brand like Flipkart’.
The Foundation support Persons with Disabilities through ARISE+ (our school education program) and SMART+ (our employability program). I would urge you to contact our Foundation team at your locations and volunteer for the cause or refer Persons with Disability to one of our SMART+ centres at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Stay connected for stories of courage, joy and hope as we walk along the coming year.
