Who We Are

People First Foundation

Established in 2014, People First Foundation works for the empowerment, employment, integration and rights of people with disabilities. Work is fundamental to our lives. It means so much more than a paycheck – it offers purpose and the opportunity to lead an independent, self-directed life for all people, including people with disabilities.

People with disabilities have the skills to pursue meaningful careers and play an important role in India’s educational and economic success. In fact, experience with disability can offer a competitive edge when it comes to work. Only a person with a disability can define his or her own limitations. People First Foundation is helping disabled to seek employment, identified the tools to be productive on the job, and understand their right to be evaluated on their ability, not disability.

When you hear the word 'disabled,' people immediately think about people who can't walk or talk or do everything that people take for granted. There is a plan and a purpose, a value to every life, no matter what its location, age, gender or disability. Disability is a matter of perception. If you can do just one thing well, you're needed by someone. With mainstreaming and inclusion as its constant theme, the Foundation has initiated a slew of innovative programs that aim at total inclusion of people with disabilities. Our philosophy is one of total inclusion. 

Towards these goals we engage in a spectrum of activities that include Training & Skill Development, Establishing residential Multi-skills Development Centers, Self & Wage employment, publishing & media, culture & recreation, legislation & human rights.
