About Me
Hi! I'm Aariana Tarapore and I'm currently studying at FLAME University. This summer I decided to do an internship at VConnect Foundation and quickly realized that the work they are doing is necessary and essential. Individuals with disabilities aren't usually in the mainstream mind, and their needs aren't very well known. VConnect is working towards changing this. They provide an ecosystem of support, knowledge, and care to their community of parents, caregivers, and children. I truly believe that they are doing some great work, and I would be grateful for your donation however big or small.
