History of the AKSHAYA
The long forgotten sections of the society rise to claim their Equal and Basic Rights due to HUMAN DIGNITY under as one AKSHAYA Rehabilitation Trust – disability human rights organization. AKSHAYA Rehabilitation Trust is rights based organization in the Tamil Nadu State, INDIA.
In 1998, the group of Disables' felt that Disables Rights based issue and Disability Development programs could be addressed more effectively only through an Institutional Mechanism. So, we have started "AKSHAYA Rehabilitation Trust" as a registered Voluntary, Non-Profitable and Tax Exempted Organisation under Indian Trust Act with the group of the Physically Challenged Wheelchair Persons in the same year to work for the disables empowerment.
Since than "AKSHAYA" has been undertaking some initiatives fulfilling the demands of its constituency. This forms the basic for "AKSHAYA Rehabilitation Trust" in 1998 to address the issues of disabled persons in a comprehensive manner.
