Jyotisho Yoddhas – Our Warriors who bring in light to brighten our World

October is Down Syndrome Awareness Month. It is a time to celebrate those with Down syndrome and educate the world about all of the things our self-advocates can do.

We all know that Down syndrome is a genetic condition and one in every 800 babies in India are born with it. There is no discrimination in who is a person with Down syndrome. People of any race, ethnicity or background can have Down syndrome.

This month we proudly present to you our Yoddhas who have proved that the world is a better place because of them.
