What Social Inclusion-Imparting Skills do NGOs Follow for Empowering People with Disabilities?

Social Inclusion skills are necessary for people with disabilities to forget their discrepancies and maximize their abilities with the help of the NGO executives. 
Many people are born with certain disabilities, while a number of people undergo rough misfortunes and pains which result in disabilities. Nevertheless, they are not ready to stoop down to life easily. Rather they challenge their disabilities and with the assistance of the NGO volunteers, they strive to create their own space, identity, and recognition. 
Both money and skills are necessary for a happy life. While the volunteers of NGOs help them with their education at the earlier stages, both academically and technologically, in the later phase the volunteers train them with the necessary skills to seek employment, or else to survive by running a small-scale business on their own. In short, the NGOs help them to acknowledge the people with disabilities of their rights - to be financially independent. 
People with disabilities might have special needs, but above all, they have abilities. Hence the NGOs working with people with disabilities in India, are following the process of social inclusion.
