With a population of over a billion people, India is home to 17% of the world’s population. The divide between rich and poor is huge and over a quarter of people live in poverty. 80% of people with a disability live in poverty.
People with disability in India are often excluded from their communities and society. This social isolation means that people with disabilities struggle to access even the most basic services like healthcare and education.
Our work in India is focused on improving livelihoods, community health initiatives, providing education for all and treating and preventing blindness.
