VIDEO: How One Small Idea Helped Several People on Wheelchairs Go to the Beach

Be it office buildings, banks, gardens or beaches, no public place should be inaccessible to any citizen of the country. Watch how this project helped 3 people on wheelchairs enjoy the beach for a day. 

Awareness and sensibility about differently-abled people is fortunately increasing in India. Though small in number, there have been a few remarkable initiatives taken either by the administration, or individuals, to make the country more accessible for people living with disabilities.

The focus is on changing infrastructure in a way that they do not need someone else to access places where they need to be; to enable them in a way that they can do things on their own.

The Red Ramp project is a similar initiative. As per their websiteThe Red Ramp Project is a small step by H & R Johnson that aims to create a shift in people’s thinking, and maybe in the priorities of some policy-makers too. In a remarkable move, this project tried to make beaches accessible for people on wheelchairs.

Though this happened for one day, on one beach, the result was all smiles and a lot of inspiration.
