“ Disabilities are yet another manifestation of global diversity. Let us be committed to the fundamental principles of dignity and equality for all human beings.”
As advocated by Guru Rabindranath Tagore, the school strongly believes in equality in society and dignity of each individual . In keeping with this belief, a new social project has been initiated this year to sensitise the students regarding individuals with intellectual disabilities and how to enable and empower them to get their due respect and right place in society.
Team Saksham firmly believes in Supporting, Valuing and Advocating Inclusion.
