NCPEDP is one of the pioneer organization that encourages inclusion through recognizing role models. While it’s pride for individual to get recognized, purpose of such awards is actually to motivate others around awardees. Here is an announcement from NCPEDP for upcoming 18thNCPEDP Mindtree Helen Keller Awards 2017.
As you are aware, National Centre for Promotion of Employment for Disabled People (NCPEDP) is a non-profit voluntary organisation founded in 1996 working as an interface between various stakeholders – Government, Industry and Civil Society Organisations (both national and international) for the empowerment of persons with disabilities.
NCPEDP has long believed that inclusion at workplace plays a pivotal role in the accomplishment of equal opportunities for persons with disabilities. Started as a discourse in 1999, NCPEDP launched the Helen Keller Awards to identify exemplary work towards the cause of inclusion. Over the many years, these Awards have come to be recognized as the most prestigious Indian benchmark for honouring people and organisations that have worked towards a barrier-free, non-discriminatory and inclusive India.

Category A: Role Model Disabled Person
