To make a difference Nadia with love from England
Nadia Emma Clarke, who is unable to speak and is deaf due to cerebral palsy, moves around with the support of an electrical wheelchair. She visited Aanchal, Centre for Differently Abled children at Rohini in the Capital recently, with a mission to spread the message of equal and mainstream education for the disabled people. Nadia who hails from Halifax West Yorkshire especially chose to visit Aanchal when she came to know about it from her common friends.

Nadia Clarke's parents had to fight to win her a place for normal education. This was widely published in the media and in western Press including Guardian.

Nadia wants to convey her message 'To Make a Difference' to the specially abled children of India and thus enabling parents of such children to see life in a different perspective. She uses an electric communication aid to talk and convey her message to others.

"I love a great adventure in life. Lots of people say I am a good listener; I am funny and very thoughtful and kind. Whether I enjoy a gig with friends or travel the world to sight see I always meet new people along the way sharing my life and experiences with many people across the world," Nadia said.

Earlier, she visited Australia and Europe to meet the differently abled people conveying them the message of 'equal opportunity'. "Differently abled persons can be brought to the mainstream with appropriate training and with modern and advanced devices like electrical wheel chair," she said.

Government should come forward to supply from hearing aids to electrical wheel chair and such things that can be made the differently abled persons independent and self-supporting.

'Proud to be deaf and disabled, love to travel, study and mentoring disabled people' she wrote once in her twitter.

She expressed happiness after visiting Aanchal – Centre for Differently abled children an institute managed by St Gregorios Charitable Society.

Nadia was received by Fr Joji Kurian Thomas, Director, Aanchal, members of St Gregorios Charitable Society and general public at Aanchal on April 8.
