On the 11th of January 2023, a team from IIT Madras visited the Angels’ Village, Kanjirapally. The team was received warmly by the staff and members at the center. The center provides a safe and friendly environment for the differently abled to learn, work and socialize. The team was taken on a tour of the center, where they were able to observe the various activities and services provided to the differently abled. These included physical and occupational therapy, speech therapy, vocational training, and educational sessions. The team was also able to witness a classroom session on basic computing skills. The team then interacted with the staff and members at the center. They discussed the various challenges faced by the differently abled and the initiatives taken by the center to address them.

The team was immensely touched by the warmth and hospitality of the staff and members of the center.
