We are writing to you on behalf of Naturals Spa and Salon regarding their Naturals Enable initiative and to invite you to the inauguration of India’s first inclusive beauty salon chain by Mithali Raj.
WE HAVE A DREAM
Almost 5 decades back, Martin luther king Jr. delivered the famous “I have a dream” speech, one of the most defining speeches in history during the march on Washington for jobs and freedom. A speech that threw the light on a dream that shaped America.
Today, Veena and I have a dream too. A dream to provide people with disabilities a platform to showcase their talent; a dream to bridge the gap between them and society; a dream to eradicate the word “disabled” from the lexicon. We have a dream to ENABLE.
Naturals Enable is an initiative, in partnership with Youth4Jobs Foundation, to employ people with disabilities from all walks of life; to give them a strong purpose in life; to help them be financially independent.
Together let’s help them dream. Together let’s build a beautiful India.

” We believe that the best way to create an inclusive society is to provide financial independence to physically challenged people. Employing people with disabilities is what we aim for. Among the majority of 70% of the people of Naturals Enable will be disabled people and the remaining 30 % will be enabled. Our future endeavour is to generate employment for physically challenged people in each of our 611 salons before the end of this year. We are confident enough by providing job opportunities to the disabled people to not only build an inclusive society but also to give the brand naturals a dynamic move.” – C K Kumaravel
