The persons with disabilities are often marginalized in our society due to certain taboos and narrow mindset. Their marriage is also neglected. Therefore, Divyang Marriage Ceremony is organized every year to commemorate the birthday of Hon’ble Sharadchandraji Pawar Saheb. The Divyang Marriage Ceremony is a very joyous event. Yashwantrao Chavan Centre holds this mass-marriage ceremony by taking care of the marriage expenses of each couple, gifting them essential household appliances etc. This initiative has received a huge response from the persons with disability belonging to the economically weaker sections of the society.
The first ‘Divyang Marriage Ceremony’ organized by Yashwantrao Chavan Centre, Pawar Public Charitable Trust with District Rehabilitation Center run by Mahatma Gandhi Seva Sangh was held on January 3, 2022, on the birth anniversary of Krantijyoti Savitribai Phule. The Marriage Ceremony was conducted in compliance with all the COVID-19 preventive measures as prescribed by the authorities. Supriya Sule, the Working President of Yashwantrao Chavan Centre attended the program virtually and extended her best wishes to all the brides and grooms.
