This was held at the India International Centre Annexe (I.I.C.), New Delhi.
The workshop conducted by P.A.T.C., Denmark brought together several organizations in India whose projects are being funded by Danish partners. National Centre for Promotion of Employment for Disabled People (N.C.P.E.D.P.) was among the participants at the workshop.
