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.
