“In our church, there is an old woman whose legs are paralysed. She has been using a wheel chair for years. It was very difficult for her to enter the car from her wheelchair,” says Joseph. Her struggle with the chair inspired Joseph to think of a special wheelchair with a motor, which can adjust its height. The features of the chair help in aligning it with the seat of the car. The tiny wheels under the seat make it almost a trolley, thus making movement less stressful. 

Joseph wants to become an engineer. “I can make different things ‘differently’, with my own hands,” remarks Joseph.
