How Do People with Disabilities Perceive Their Life and How NGOs are Fostering a Change?

Every day, we can catch a glimpse of people suffering from disabilities, either they are bound to wheelchairs, or they use crutches for walking, either they are unable to see, or their vision is weak, either they are totally deaf or their hearing capacity is weak. Despite their disabilities, they are not invalid - as they often consider themselves to be since their functional capacity is somewhat impaired. Here is where the NGO executives step in to help them realize their skill, their personal abilities, and the fields they shall handle with expertise. 
The NGO executives working for the people with disabilities in India, persuade these people to believe in their self-worth and encourage them to have a voice of their own, to forget their disabilities.
As the statistics say, more than 3 crore people in India are suffering from disabilities. With their mobility being hampered, they are unable to visit the centers they would want to. Even for the people having impairments in hearing, seeing, and talking - some events and avenues are closed down for them. The worst of all is treating these conditions medically, and getting operated on involves a fortune that almost everyone is unable to afford. As a result, either they are left to the mercy of nature, and with the passage of time, they start developing psychological issues.
To break the stereotypes, the NGO executives have come forward with the mission to assist them and introduce them to the real world.
By looking, feeling, and understanding the whereabouts, people with disabilities are finally able to understand what they would want to do. Several instances serve them as inspirations. Apart from the adults, the kids are often forced to drop out of their education due to their physical disabilities, and not to mention the attached financial constraints. Maybe the online classes are open for them, but inabilities to access them and understand the entire setup forces them to stay away, although they might be hungry for knowledge. Thanks to the efforts and schemes the NGO executives undertake with regards to community-based organizations, special schools and classes have been set up, where they are taught in ways they can understand. As a result, they no longer have to struggle for online classes. 
As book banks are now organized, specifically for these kids, they are allowed to have free access to books, so they can hone their reading and writing skills. The NGO executives believe the students can add to their thinking skills that ultimately helps them shape their mind. In this way, they can forget their disadvantages and focus on themselves to come out of the shell to work for their dreams and achieve them.
Along with education, special classes are held where they are trained with the basics of life, like abiding by cleanliness, following healthy lifestyles, and the ways they can take care of their environment. All these sessions inspire their minds. They take active interests in participation since these keep them busy, and slowly they forget about their disabilities. 
The NGO executives train them in extra curriculum activities, as even in different skills like weaving, baking, pottery making, and the like arts and crafts, on which the people with disabilities could bank on for a living. 
The NGOs work for the best to uplift the people with disabilities in India through proper care, education, job training. Owing to the determined executives, the people are no longer the backward community. They can now face the challenges and find out the befitting solution. They can end their suffering by having a voice of their own.
