The story of Vishwas began with a dream of partnering with people with disabilities, across different life stages and from different social contexts with one focused goal: enabling each one of them realise his/her potential and become equals in the society.
In 2005, we began in the little village of Sanp Ki Nagli in Sohna, near Gurgaon, in a government primary school. The idea of working with children with disabilities came with several challenges, in terms of accessibility as well as attitudes. Vishwas was keen to reach the unreached in rural areas, so we began our work in villages but the lack of professional support forced us to step back and reconsider. We looked for a small place in Gurgaon instead: a place to begin, to implement our ideas and concepts of inclusive practices and refine them, so that we could then go back to the villages, equipped with new insight and understanding.
