Anju Khemani

Anju Khemani is the founder of the Drama Association of the Deaf (DAD), which was an outcome of her theatre course at the National School of Drama and extensive work with the deaf community. DAD seeks to promote self-identity by fostering a sense of belonging in one’s own culture, and tolerance and respect for other cultures. Her work has been a synthesis of sensitising organisations and communities towards inclusion, developing content for training, and capacity-building of trainers and young adults with disabilities and the HIV-affected women and men. Her training course material is used across India for training youth with disabilities.
