Rising Flame is a National Award winning nonprofit organisation based in India, working for recognition, protection, and promotion of human rights of people with disabilities, particularly women and youth with disabilities. Rising Flame’s vision is to build an inclusive world in which diverse bodies, minds, and voices thrive with dignity; live free of discrimination, abuse, and violence; and enjoy equal opportunities and access.
Since our establishment in 2017, we aim to enable persons with disabilities standing at multiple intersections to have a voice, have a space, be heard and lead from the front. As a self-led organisation, we are committed to upholding disability justice values and feminist principles.
