We believe a strong, democratic society embraces diversity and systematically respects the rights and dignity of all.
Our participatory community based new media communication processes increase participation by concerned societies, marginalized groups, creating new channels for public awareness and overcoming stereotypes. By valuing inclusion, we harness the potential of different ideas, opinions and skills, building more sustainable solutions and fostering a sense of belonging and community across barriers.

Vision Statement

We strive to be the leaders in building social awareness for an accessible and inclusive India through public, non profits, for profits and government collaborative participation.

Mission Statement

ReachAble brings together public, developers, stakeholders, policymakers, and communicators to identify and challenge the barriers to an inclusive, just, and disabled friendly Indian society by expanding pathways for access and success. ReachAble will serve as a information hub of a vibrant network of researchers, innovators and community partners and will take a leadership role in translating, communicating, and facilitating research, policy, and strategic engagement. ReachAble advances advocacy, campaigns and policy related to marginalized people with disabilities while essentially touching all who benefit from a truly diverse, fair, and promoting a healthy and engaging social climate.

We represents a tremendous opportunity to bring leading innovators, researchers and substantial resources across disciplines to bear on society’s pressing and pivotal issues related to equity and inclusion.

Why Inclusive India?
The one billion people with disabilities in the world have the right to participate fully in their societies. Census 2001 has revealed that over 21 million people in India as suffering from one or the other kind of disability. This is equivalent to 2.1% of the population.Over the next 20 years, that number will rise as the population ages.Creating a country where every person who lives or visits can participate fully makes good sense — for our people, our businesses and our communities. ReachAble is inviting India’s businesses, organizations and communities to become more accessible and inclusive to people with disabilities.
Coordinating and planning across sectors, ensuring access to services, providing appropriate training, improving research, and consulting people with disabilities in all these actions can do much to improve their lives.

Enabling environments
The development and enforcement of legislation on accessibility; the adoption of universal design for buildings, roads, modes of transport and information and communication technology; and specialized training for architects, engineers and designers among others can help to ensure that people with disabilities have equal access to their environments.

Assistance and support
People with disabilities can live independently in their communities. Investment in a range of well regulated and responsive support services such as respite care, the services of a personal assistant, and sign language provision among others can ensure dignity and well-being for people with disabilities and their families.

All children have the right to education. Clear policies on the inclusion of children with disabilities in education, accessible schools, appropriately trained teachers, specialized support for individual students, and the involvement of families and communities will help improve education for children with disabilities.
