Samarth SoochnaPreneur (SSP) is an initiative of the EquallyAble Foundation and the Digital Empowerment Foundation. The aim of the program is to digitally empower persons with disabilities to become social entrepreneurs and further empower their communities by providing them with digital access to governance, education and finance.
Each PwDs is provided with digital training and digital tools such as tablets, laptops and printers and in turn (s)he uses the digital tools to provide digital services such as access to government schemes and services, Aadhar corrections, photocopies, online bookings, education, finance, health, livelihood, and several entitlements.
SSP allows the PwDs to not only become independent and earn enough money to support their family but it also allows them to serve communities at large. One tablet, one printer and one laptop has the power to not only transform the life of a PwDs but also of an entire community that has been in information darkness due to lack of access to digital tools.
