Thiruvananthapuram: Dr Murali Thummarukudi, Director, G20 Global Land Initiative, said that all initiatives being set up by the Different Art Centre are exemplary to protect differently-abled people from insecurity and give them a new way of life and create a sense of purpose for them. He was speaking after inaugurating the Texas project launched at the Different Art Center to provide digital literacy to children with disabilities. It is an excellent example of differently-abled friendship. There is no other place where parents are happy with the differently-abled. Differently-abled people are a category that deserves a lot of consideration. The society has a great responsibility towards them. He added that this centre, which discharges that responsibility properly, is a role model for the world.
Project Texa was launched to teach vocational computer courses to differently-abled children. The project is being implemented in collaboration with UST. Along with computer learning, cyber awareness will also be provided to children.
UST Workplace Management and Operations Senior Director Harikrishnan Mohan Kumar, Kasargod District Panchayat President Baby Balakrishnan, Foma Housing Forum Chairman Joseph Auso, Women's Forum Chairperson Suja Auso, Different Art Centre Executive Director Gopinath Muthukad and others were present on the occasion.
