Indian Partner EMPOWER Project

Our partner organization in India, Sri Ramachandra University, has applied to funding for an innovative project that they are spearheading. Simply by voting you will be contributing to the development and dissemination of new technology to support the rehabilitation of people born with cleft lip and palate.

Details about the project from our Indian partner, as well as instructions for voting, are below.

E-MPOWER: E-technology for Management of Projects for individuals With communication disorders from Rural areas

We have applied for the above project with Mahindra’s Spark the Rise initiative. Success in obtaining funding will depend on the votes that we are able to garner. I hope to reach TFW partners and friends worldwide to log in and vote!
