ABOUT YES! WE CAN
Yes! We Can Trust is a registered non-government entity operating on the national level under the Indian Trust Act of 1882 Govt. of NCT Delhi since 2013(IN-DL99693529699521L).

Their constant feedback is our driving force behind the selection of these projects. However, implementing such projects requires a great deal of planning and communication at all levels.

As a small initiative in this direction, we have started holding events and get-togethers for differently-abled persons. We also sensitize society through other online and offline modes. Our intention is also to motivate and instil confidence in these persons by effectively bringing them out in society despite their respective limitations. We feel such an exercise will also provide real feedback on the effectiveness of various ongoing empowering facilities and measures.
Our endeavour is to prompt independent living in differently-abled persons creating:
