Prakat has been part of the ecosystem of giving back to the society and nature from which we borrow so much. Our social vision of inclusivity has driven us to put our techonological capabilities towards creating accessible solutions for the differently abled. One of our core service offerings being accessibility assurance, we help people with various types of disabilities (like visual, auditory or cognitive disabilities) get access to technology products. We have also been recognized for employing differently in order to bring them into the fold of mainstream technology workforce. We have partnered with a Bangalore based NGO, Mitra Jothi since our early days. Mithra Jyothi has been doing inspiring work, empowering the visually challenged with life skills to help them integrate with the main stream society. They undertake various types of trainings on which we collaborate with them as often as possible.
