2,800 Individuals with Disabilities Now Have Jobs and Financial Security. Thanks to One Initiative.

A young man with hearing impairment finds his new job is the reason for his parents’ beaming smiles. A physically challenged son of construction workers gets his first job at the age of 32. A young woman with locomotor disability finds a job that helps her educate her younger sister. A hearing impaired young girl finds that her economic independence translates into financial security for her entire family.
The brainchild of B S Nagesh (of Shoppers Stop fame) and Meera Shenoy, Pankh is the result of a collaboration between Trust for Retailers & Retail Associates of India (TRRAIN) and Youth 4 Jobs Foundation (Y4J).
The initiative was started in May 2011, with the primary aim of ensuring employability for people with disabilities (PWD).
