Success Stories

We make them believe in themselves. Like all of us they have their euphoric highs and heart breaking lows. We help them in overcoming their barriers and encourage them to transform them into a light at the end of the tunnel. Here are some of the success stories of the handicapped persons in their own words who have benefited from FPH.

When I was ten years old, my leg was fractured and due to severe complications I have undergone several operations on my leg. Finally my leg was amputated. Now, I am walking without crutches with support of artificial limbs. I had taken training in the Printing Department of FPH and received good knowledge of printing. I am very grateful to FPH for its support to start my own Printing Press with two machines which enabled me to give employment to four handicapped girls. I received a special award “Suneeta Devi Singhania Award” from National Society for Equal Opportunities for the Handicapped at Chembur.
