ACE Social Foundation (ASF) is a 9-year-old registered non-profit organization that has been championing the empowerment of Persons with Disabilities (PwDs).
ACE, an acronym for Awareness, Care & Empowerment was founded on the conviction that experiences and encounters are powerfully effective pedagogical tools.
German Jewish Philosopher Martin Buber, perhaps, expresses this conviction most aptly when he states: “the only way to learn is through encounter.”
Deeply inspired by this idea ACE set out on a mission to use deeply impactful unique, experiential exhibits as a medium to educate individuals on socially relevant subjects.
In 2011 ACE brought the world famous “DIALOGUE IN THE DARK (DID)” exhibit to Hyderabad. Dialogue in the dark since its inception in India has reached out to over 5 lakh visitors across India who after their experience at Dialogue in the dark have taken back a message on Diversity & social Inclusion.
ACE Social Foundation (ASF) has been championing the empowerment of Persons with Disabilities (PwDs) focussing on two key pain-points:
- Sensitizing the world about the abilities of the disabled through Dialogue in the Dark (DID) leading to job pledges for PwDs.
- Mainstreaming of PwD’s by providing the much-needed market linked training and employment.
