Hi Bikash, big congrats for making to the shortlisted. I am glad for you. We did not make it and this is a bit disappointing because we put an hell of efforts but it is part of the game. I wish you all the best with the idea.

Hi Bikash, thanks for the comment. Yes i agree with you, it does not want to be a "forced", top down thing and self empowerment is SELF empowerment, nothing else, you can support, encourage in amazing ways but then, it is up to the person, that's why we always say ENGAGE support a process of self empowerment and on this there are many ways....The assumption is that with the right/conducive environment, right activities, a youth living with disability can have much better chances at making it.
I saw you got a lot of comments...great, best of luck
