Reshma Babu, The Helper

After she was diagnosed with polio at fifth months old, Reshma Babu didn’t think she’d be able to hold down a normal job. But when she found Accion partner Vindhya e-Infomedia, that changed.

Reshma has worked her way up to the call center at Vindhya, which prides itself on its inclusive practices for persons with disabilities, with over 80 percent of its staff working with some sort of physical disability. For Vindhya, it’s not about charity or forgoing profit – it’s about helping a group that is largely ignored while also building a thriving business.
