BENGALURU: The message that the third edition of the India Inclusion Summit, which kicked off in the city on Friday, aimed to convey was that ‘everyone is good at something’.
The event is a community initiative supported by multinational company SAP SE with the aim to provide a platform to create awareness about people with disabilities. V Feroze, senior V-P of SAP SE’S globalisation services, said, “The event is not just a two-day activity to promote the cause of disabilities but also one that catalyses real action on the ground. In the first year of the event, we managed to raise over `12 lakh with which we established the Sampoorna Music Therapy School which continues to do great work among autistic children.”
Former cabinet minister Arun Shourie said, “People with handicaps — and I’m not going to use a euphemism — have tremendous spirit to fight. They put their disability to work and are great examples to all of us. When it comes to employability, everyone has their own strength.”
