Bridging the Gap - an Indo-Nepal initiative
Dr. Surekha Ramachandran and her team went to Nepal in a bid to bring about change in perceptions about persons with down syndrome. Persons with Down syndrome have been considered people who cannot work and would be dependent on their parents or others to support them. However Dr. ramachandran and team went to Nepal to prove this notion wrong.



The main aim of this visit was to train a few students of Down syndrome Association of Nepal on weaving, which is a constant activity at the Down syndrome center – Mathru Mandir. Mr. Mohan, the Weaving Unit head of Mathru Mandir accompanied Dr. Ramachandran along with Mr. Aditya, a student and a person with Down syndrome and Arti Krishnamoorthy – another livewire person with Down syndrome.
