Today, on International Sign Language Day, I got a unique opportunity to attend an enthusing Workshop on Sign Language by GiftAbled in partnership with Google.Together, 200 of us learnt how to say yes, no, sorry, thank you, A-Z, how to find our sign language names and basic sentences within an hour. We also learnt that there are more than 300 sign languages and not one universal followed by all. Facial expressions and emotions are as critical in communicating via sign language as in verbal and we learnt how to express more using our hands and faces.Incredible to see people come together to learn to support those with hearing impairments and TAB (Temporarily Abled Body, aren't we all?). A huge thank you to our warm and zealous host, Prarthana Kaul for this enlightening session. Looking forward to learning more on this and eventually being a volunteer.

Diversity & Inclusion Ambassador | Project Leader
A truly well spent morning with these leaders from various companies, wanting to foster inclusion in their work place. A shout out to Prarthana Kaul from GiftAbled for a truly immersive disability workshop. I was humbled as I learnt how important it is to use 'People First' language and also reflect on my own privilege as a (temporary) able bodied person. In one of the exercises, I had to introduce myself as though I have a speech impairment- and no one understood me.Think about those with this condition and their daily challenges. Nonetheless, I believe that I (and all of us here) can do our part as an ally, leader and influencer as we apply our learnings from this workshop.

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.

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!
