But it is not just about physical and economic self-reliance. It’s helping people get back the power to live their lives — even with limitations. “I was so surprised when I reached the centre to see so many disabled people living normally,” says 19-year-old Niloufar, paralysed due to a gunshot wound. “Up to then, I was depressed,” she recalls. “I am now another person, not the Nilofar of before. I can do anything. I am strong, I am powerful.”
