Thirteen people, including ten Indians, are setting out in September to climb Mount Kilimanjaro. They have a cause they want to highlight – disability inclusivity. Three of the climbers are visually impaired, including two Indians, Divyanshu Ganatra and Prasad Gurav.
Divyanshu Ganatra (40), one of the visually impaired climbers and founder of the not-for-profit Adventures Beyond Barriers Foundation (ABBF), laughs at the reaction of many when they get to know of this. This shock and amazement are what they are climbing against – shock borne out of ignorance at a person with disabilities’ abilities.
