Second Chance, A Store with a Difference
Set up as India’s first ever thrift store run by young adults with autism, Second Chance was awarded the Intel Social Innovation of the Year in 2011. The store is located right next to the Ashish Centre. It has a threefold objective:
- To involve the larger community in sharing their resources, both new and used, with others;
- To provide differently-abled persons with a means of employment so that they can be contributing members of society; and
- To give low-income families the dignity of being able to purchase goods for themselves.
