About Us

The Cane Foundation was founded by three intellectual property attorneys with the objective of making a difference to the lives of persons with disabilities. The initial fund to The Cane Foundation was contributed by Professor Ramakrishna T., who is a senior faculty member at the National Law School of India University. During the first few years, the focus of the foundation is on persons with blindness.


Our vision is to create a world where persons with disabilities are able to live an independent, happy life without discrimination and fetters of any kind.


Our mission is to fight disabilities in the minds of people to bring about attitudinal, social, psychological, and cultural change, and pave the way for equal participation of persons with disabilities in all walks of life.
