If you know someone in a wheelchair, you can understand the difficulty they have while traveling and finding accessible places to visit.
I don’t know anyone as such, but my heart goes out to them. Every. Single. Time.
Umoja is a company that’s changing the way they travel, one step at a time. A start up, based in Mumbai, they have been gathering details and making travel simpler for people in wheelchairs.
Right now, their mission is to make beaches in Goa accessible to them, which is currently not accessible under CRZ regulations. Talk about discrimination, India! Hmmmph.
