Mindtree Foundation’s charter is to promote education to underprivileged children with a special emphasis on people with disabilities (PWD). Technology plays a very powerful role in this endeavor. Development and dissemination of affordable and sustainable indigenous AT solutions can be a game-changer.
The Foundation is trying to build an ecosystem, ATTribute, to fulfill the wide-ranging needs of people with disabilities. A portal developed by Mindtree will serve as the core of this ecosystem. It will collect the needs of PWDs that have been identified, assessed, and validated by various channels such as NGOs and special schools. It then facilitates delivery of solutions for the pre-validated AT needs by publishing them on the portal and tapping into our network of Mindtree Minds, academia, external service providers and product companies.
