CIS collaborated with Ashoka India to host ‘Open House with George Abraham’ – an open discussion on inclusion of persons with disabilities in mainstream society on Wednesday, May 21, 2014 at the Ashoka premises.

The event involved screening of episodes from ‘NazaryaNazariya’ — a television series on living with visual impairment — followed by a discussion with George Abraham, CEO, Score Foundation, on identifying and resolving challenges that restrict inclusion of persons with disabilities in mainstream society.

Nazarya Nazariya (Sight or Perspective) is a series that was created by the Delhi based Score Foundation and was telecast on Doordarshan. The series showcases different challenges faced by persons with visual impairment and explores steps to ensure inclusion of the visually impaired.

The discussion with George Abraham initially centred around the importance of education and universal design — the topics highlighted in the two episodes that were screened — before moving on to other areas such as use of assistive technology, enhancing employability of persons with disabilities, developing equal employment opportunities and creating an inclusive workplace.
