I have had the privilege to work with GiftAbled – an organisation that cares for persons with disabilities. The work GiftAbled is doing in the PwD space is commendable. Their ability to conduct sensitization programs, meaningful social interventions and driving Employer summit is remarkable. The NGO passionately run by Prarthana and Prateek is a true example for service with humility. They would never propose an initiative without a need on the ground. May you tribe increase!”

It is truly our pleasure working with such a great organization like “Giftabled’, your constant penchant for giving back to the community where we belong to is laudable. In whatever time that we had close interaction with your org(we wish to continue further though) in the activities like. Coming to the team “Gift abled”, has a bunch of super charged youngsters who have left their attractive careers with top notch companies including many MNCs and lead the Org with passion. I have no doubt that humanity needs people like you, may your tribe grow.”

GiftAbled, is an organization that has successfully brought the issues of people with disability to the mainstream. The passion, the transparency, and the efficiency of the GiftAbled team has helped them successfully take on projects that bring about change at scale. Zinnov is proud to have partnered with GiftAbled on their Swatantrata initiative where our funds were used to teach weaving to 50+ NGOs and parents of children with disability. These NGOs in turn are now helping people with disability get more proficient at weaving and make it an occupation that can help them earn a livelihood. We look forward to working with this dynamic team to change the lives of the 1 billion plus differently abled people to make a difference.”
