Meet Sugandha Sukrutraj who works to bring dignity to people with intellectual disability

In a CNBC-TV18 Independence Day special show, we throw light on the agents of change - individuals and organisations, that are impacting lives and bringing tangible transformation in the society.
In India, there are more than 10 million adults with moderate to severe intellectual disability. Sugandha Sukrutraj is working to bring dignity to their lives.
She started "Amba" in May 2004 with the goal to provide sustainable livelihood to adults with moderate to severe intellectual disability. Amba is training these individuals for data entry jobs in the information technology sector.
Recipient of various awards, Sugandha feels that as a society we need to take a leap of faith and instead of sympathising with adults with intellectual disability, we should work to develop employment opportunities for them.
