Raindropss “REACH THE BEACH” 2018

Going to the beach for the pleasure of enjoying the lap of waves on one’s feet is one of life’s simplest pleasures, and yet it is out of reach for lakhs of differently-abled people. Driven by the need to make it inclusive for all, RAINDROPSS laid a temporary ramp on Elliot’s Beach in the city, for persons with disabilities to reach the shore

Organised by Raindropss, this initiative was to spread awareness on inclusion and making public spaces accessible for people with disabilities. It was a heart-warming sight when the organizers and volunteers of Raindropss gathered to assemble a makeshift, temporary ramp with carpet welcome to enable people on wheelchairs reach the shore. 

We used interconnecting plates on the sand, positioned in such a way as to make movement of the wheelchair easy. Volunteers of Raindropss and support organizations helped keep this make-shift pathway in place, whenever conditions turned windy. 100’s of differently abled persons from Tamilnadu Udhavikaram Differently Abled Welfare Association participated in this initiative.

It is a dream of every differently-abled person: visit the beach to leave a trail on the wet sand and let the frothy waves lap at their legs. But for many, it remains unfulfilled as nothing is more difficult than wading through the sand in a wheelchair or walking on crutches. We wanted to make the dream of every differently-abled person come true, we believe this initiative has made them happy and they will cherish these memories
