D.N.I.S. News Network, India: It’s another feather in the cap for National Centre for Promotion of Employment for Disabled People (N.C.P.E.D.P.)! Recently one of its projects undertaken in collaboration with the British High Commission found a mention in U.K. Foreign Secretary, David Miliband's speech on the occasion of the World Disability Day.
The three-year project entitled, “Mainstreaming Disability in the National Agenda – Policy to Practice”, is focussed on 5 key areas of health, employment, accessibility, information technology and rural development.
