A throwback to 2017 at The Ponty Chadha Foundation

From raising awareness around disability, to creating countless ripples of 1change for the underprivileged, The Ponty Chadha Foundation has achieved many milestones in 2017.

Empowered and self-sustaining, the resources at the PCF are shared equally, while individuals from all walks of life are made to realise their full potential, which in turn empowers them to actively participate in improving the society and overall development for mankind.

The major achievements in 2017

Health Camps

The Ponty Chadha Foundation has led 51 successful health camps in rural areas of Ghaziabad and Noida.

Food Distribution

There were 3 major food distribution camps, which were conducted in rural areas around Delhi/NCR.

Vaakya App- 2017

MBCN, an initiative of The Ponty Chadha Foundation, launched a picture-based mobile application in 2017, which was designed to help speech impaired and differently-abled children in learning through augmentative and alternative communication. The app has been named as ‘Vaakya’ , and it is immensely helpful for people who are speech impaired, affected by autism, cerebral palsy and various other mental and physical conditions.

When it comes to building necessary skill set and harnessing talent, our MBCN teachers and staff deserve a resounding applause. The extremely talented kids at MBCN get opportunities to showcase and sell their handicrafts on the exclusive e-store.

Skills Academy

2017 has been a great year for the Skills Academy, where unemployed youth are given a chance to shine with their inherent talents and skill. Besides the expanding infrastructure, Skills Academy has helped pave a bright future for the underprivileged sections of our society.

Beyond Disability

MBCN, a pivotal pillar of The Ponty Chadha Foundation, carried out a special campaign to raise awareness around disability, called #BeyondDisability. The various activities carried out by MBCN and its staff were exclusively featured in India’s leading newspapers and media channels, such as Hindustan Times, Amar Ujala and Navodaya Times. Besides this, a live coverage was also showcased on social media channels that gave real-time updates of the events to everyone on a global scale. Needless to say, the impact has been immense, and the change has stirred many mindsets across the nation.

Connecting Signs

Connecting Signs, an initiative by The Ponty Chadha Foundation, not just educated the masses about sign language and its importance, but also made people realise that specially-abled children, despite their disabilities, have endless amounts of talents and skills that can shape the world in a wonderful and meaningful way.

Vaakya – Innovation for the special ones!

Vaakya App

Ordering food- just tap and it’s delivered in an hour…

Want to go shopping? Open the app and buy anything and everything.

Technology has made our lives so easy that everything is just a click away.
Our country is developing with technology and so are our people. From battlefield grenades to a mop used for home chores; every little innovation is a vouchsafe of technology.

On 11th May, 1998 India executed the successful Shakti, the Pokhran nuclear test and the first indigenous aircraft “Hansa-3” was test flown to Bangalore on this day. Not only this, we also performed successful test firing of the Trishul missile on the same day.

To honour our technological advancements, we celebrate National Technology Day on the 11th of May since 1999. Every year, this day, the Technology Development Board of India awards individuals with national awards for their contribution to indigenous technology.

While technology helps people share their views with everyone, there also exist millions of people who can’t voice their opinions because of speech impairment. To help such individuals, we have designed Vaakya, an augmentative and alternative communication mobile application for a smartphone.

Vaakya is a picture-based app which provides the users the flexibility of customization according to their special needs and the benefit of using Vaakya is that you don’t require an internet connection to operate it.

So this technology day, benefit a life and make it a bit easier for someone by sharing Vaakya with them.
