This group is aimed to improving the lifestyles of disabled people.

They organize various activities which build confidence among the physically disabled.

They are physical activities which make them enjoy the things they never thought they could.

Activities like trekking, sports, and community training programs are the most common ones the group organize.

At present, the group organizes treks at various destinations near Bengaluru for trainees of Skill Employability Programme at EnAble India.

So far, Vidushi herself has organized three treks so far. She helped out 150 Masters course by taking them to treks of different difficulty levels.

Jayaraj, a blind trek participant says that adventures like trekking and rock climbing were a distant reality for him.

Vidushi did a Masters in Counselling Psychology from Christ College, Bengaluru. She is now National Coordinator of Community Initiatives at EnAble India.

Her aim is to remove the way disabled people are over sheltered and help them reach their true potential.

Many people physically impaired people feel less confident about their abilities and are afraid to do any activity.

By conducting such events, Vidushi helped them mingle with the society around them better.

When impaired people realize they too can experience activities that are supposedly not for them, they would feel more confident about themselves.
