Sangati was initiated with the vision of transforming India into a disabled friendly nation. The founding trustees Alka and Sudhir believed that there needed to be a formal community/group that aims specifically at increasing accessibility, inclusivity, mobility and visibility for people with disabilities in India.
As one of our unique projects we have recently launched a multi-lingual Toll-free Helpline for providing assistance and guidance via calls and texts to anyone seeking the same about disabilities and all the related issues. We aim to extend this into a 24x7 LIVE helpline including as many areas in this spectrum as we intend to include mental health and invisible disabilities.
