Fly with the "WINGS" of change !!!

Time again to throw some light on an activity where every individual's contribution is highly valued.An off topic post yet again, but could not have found a better place than my blog neutral

What is WINGS:
WINGS stands for opening up a whole new mindset among the differently-abled who feel resigned in life due to circumstances and society which limit them. It is about giving them a voice, enabling them to overcome their barriers in “Dreaming Big”. And it aims to achieve this through adventure sports.

How would WINGS help physically disabled?
This is a project initiated by a group of like-minded individuals. After our experience with adventure sports, we started thinking about how to reach out to youth with disabilities through this powerful medium. We first heard of such adventure activities being pursued by youth from National Association for Blind (NAB-Mysore).

Some of the past events:
A new High in their determination
The Himalayan battle against disability

Similar event in Bangalore:
BlindNews: Despite disability she soars to heights: student tries Aqua Parasailing

When does the event happen?
The event is scheduled in the weekend(1st or 2nd week of August,2007)

How can you contribute?
You can contribute in multiple ways:
  1. By being a volunteer.
  2. Getting us sponsors for the event.
  3. Spreading the message by linking this article in your blog or website.
  4. Or any miscellaneous way....
