Disability Rights Program (DRP) of our foundation works with a two approach system:
1) Awareness programs which includes awareness of schemes for persons living with disabilities, financial assictance available from the government, procedures to apply for available schemes, available programs in development through sports for the persons with disabilities etc. On the other hand awareness among the public masses about the needs of the disabled and sensivitiness towards the persons with disabilities.
2) The WLW FOUNDATION reaches out to protect the persons with disabilities through this program that provides disability rights advocacy by providing free legal assistance to people with disabilities experiencing discrimination in violation of their civil rights. The program brings high impact, high visibility cases in state and federal courts to protect and to expand the rights of this community.
