Growing up, I have been exposed to disability because of my mother and grandmother being so heavily involved with AADI and also because of the various people with disabilities I love within my family. Over time, as my grandparents have become older, I also see new disabilities forming including the inability to walk and mental illness.
I used to even take math tuitions from someone with a disability who worked in AADI; this shows that AADI creates opportunities we earlier thought people with disabilities could have never had. This is simply one way that I know AADI has helped people with disabilities and will continue to do so with more funding.
I take discrimination against people with disabilities extremely personally and want to do whatever it is that I can to help make the world more accessible. I know we have a long way to go but gaining funds for this marathon means we are moving one step closer to an equal world and one step further away from ableism.
Please donate whatever amount you can. I would appreciate it even if it is a small amount because it would all add up to help people with disabilities!
A big thank you to all those who have donated on this page.
I am in class XI in Sanskriti school. I absolutely love playing sports such as swimming, squash and especially football. I cannot wait to see what the future holds for me!
