After we launched the Wheelchair friendly Trivandrum initiative, Ms Sharada Devi from Trivandrum wrote to us. She tells us how, despite being in a wheelchair, she completed her education; however, in her own words, “being physically disabled, accessibility has become a hurdle. Just because of lack of accessibility, I am losing scores of opportunities to develop in my academic life.”
“As a physically challenged person, I had faced, and still face, many challenges and obstacles in day-to-day life. The lack of facilities like ramps and lifts in many places have posed difficulties for me and my parents. Almost all the present buildings, including government offices and educational institutions, lack such facilities.”
Please read what she has to say and share it with others. Join us in our efforts to make our cities barrier-free.
