Persons with disabilities (PwDs) are often excluded from many life domains. They do not have access to adequate health care, children are not enrolled in schools, they do not participate in social events, do not have the possibility to earn their own livelihood and most of them do not take part in decision making process at family- and community level 

“Vasantham federation of Differently Abled” is an outcome of the CBR project (Collective action for Basic Rights Foundation) implemented by a local NGO – Integrated Rural Community Development Society (IRCDS) in Kadambathur Block, Tiruvallur District. It works towards ensuring an equitable world where rights and dignity of persons with disability are realized and where they participate fully and effectively in society.
