AMBA's Vision for change

AMBA is a Training & Business Hub for adults with moderate to severe intellectual disabilities using Information Technology, Peer Training & Peer Supervision.  

Intellectual Disability is a disability of the mind, with delayed developments that are diverse and hinder their capacity to go through formal education at any level.  Brain injury in many cases causes associated physical disabilities, fits and seizures. 

An Ashoka Fellow driven Social Enterprise, our ecosystem of learning and earning is adaptive, visual and functional, appropriate to their acumen, making them contributors to family & Society. Their lack of social skills limits them from working in mainstream companies, so AMBA collaborates with Special Institutions pan India & helps them evolve into hubs for learning & earning, using their infrastructure, administration & trainers, keeping overheads to a minimum. We call them AMBA Certified Partner Centers (ACPCs).

I have had the good fortune of empaneling AMBA as a service provider to carry out Data Entry work for Tata Teleservices Limited (TTL). They had earlier been handling receipt printing, mailing and dispatch for Karnataka Circle for three years. The experience in both cases surpassed our expectations. AMBA has proved that given the right environment and specialized interventions, it is possible to make even people with intellectual disabilities self-assured, earning members of society.

What is Intellectual Disability?

Physical Disability
What Is Intellectual Disability 2

Intellectual Disability is a developmental disorder with extremely delayed milestones and very low cognitive ability. The challenge manifests in impaired ability to reason or recall, behavioural problems and very often results in all the associated challenges such as physical disability, seizures, speech and visual defects. The disability is seldom genetic, and for this reason it remains largely ‘invisible’ as appearances rarely show the disability.

The Reality of India’s Intellectually Challenged



30 million intellectually challenged adults in India with IQs below 80 live without the hope or capability of developing as professional, earning adults. Theirs is a life of existential dependence. 

The intellectually challenged community is the most marginalised section of society in India. Most government schools accept and patronise this community up until the age of 14, following which they are entertained through non-earning vocational practices only until the age of 16. Aside of the years of ridicule that AMBA has to offset, the challenge we face lies in assuring that this community has the ability to independently ensure that their future is secure.
