  • Altering lives the Family of Disabled way
    Rajinder Johar is the founder and chief executive of Family of Disabled (FOD). He was a senior occupational therapist when, in 1986, an injury to his spinal chord rendered him quadriplegic. He set up FOD in order to continue serving the disabled community. Confined to his bed and totally dependent on others, he manages the organisation from his room. He helps entrepreneurs with a variety of disabilities set up and run their own businesses. Here he writes about the issue of self-employment for disabled people.
