Two 12th graders make a Tea-Making Machine to help Specially-Abled individuals earn a living

It’s true when people say that it does not take a lot to help someone. A little bit of will power and a lot of determination and you’re already there! A duo of young boys set out on this journey and made it happen. 


Residents of Assam, Sabuj Saikia and Kaustav Moni Malakar came across several specially-abled people who had to resort to begging given their limited mobility options. They realised that there were quite a few assistive aids to help the differently-abled to move around, but hardly anything to equip them financially. The young boys who were only in grade 12 back then thought how great it would be if they could set up something for the specially-abled so that they can engage in activities which can earn them a living.
