Provide right resources, adequate opportunities to make people with disabilities contribute to national economy: Dr Jitender Aggarwal

Mumbai, Sep 25 (UNI) People with disabilities can positively contribute to the national economy if they are provided with right resources and adequate opportunities to build themselves, expressed Dr Jitender Aggarwal, founder-chief executive officer of Sarthak Educational Trust, on Friday.
"Due to Covid-19 restriction, many people with disabilities who operated small businesses, corporate jobs or other informal livelihood ventures (that is home cell phone repair or machine repair shops, selling goods, etc.) are unable to work and there is a significant loss of income," he said while speaking at the webinar on 'Global Impact of Covid-19 on Disabled Community and CSR Roadmap for Upscaling Disability Ecosystem' here.
It was held in tandem with the movement towards disability inclusivity, called 'Dhristikone: Level up Strategy 2020 for Disability Empowerment', launched by Sarthak Educational Trust and National Abilympics Association of India to initiate a dialogue with national and international leaders and give an impetus on required initiatives to empower the disability sector since the pandemic struck.
