| Thursday | 13th June, 2019
The 19th edition of India's Regional Abilympics will be held on June 14-15 at the World Trade Centre in the city.
The event hosted by the National Abilympics Association of India (NAAI), under the aegis of Sarthak Educational Trust with the support of The HansFoundation, will witness participation of about 450 people with disabilities (PwDs).
"In 2008, I started Sarthak, after realising that no corporate company in our country, was ready to hire PwDs.
The Mumbai Abilympics is spread across four zones and 10 vocational segments, including Information and Communication Technology (ICT), crafts, architecture designing through CAD, cooking and vocational services.
The winners in each segment will represent their zones at the National Abilympics and will stand a chance to represent India in the International Abilympics 2020 slated to take place in China.
