Tasneem Fatima

Tasneem is the Founder & the President of a not-for-profit organisation, Delhi State Wheelchair Basketball Association, working for the benefit of people with disabilities through the means of sports. Two years ago, she had an accident due to which she lost her ability to walk again. Inspired by the spirit of sportsmen on wheelchairs she met while in hospital, she decided to motivate others in similar circumstances. Just four months after her injury Tasneem started playing wheelchair basketball, and less than six months later attained a silver medal. She formed a State Association of Wheelchair Basketball to encourage positivity amongst people with disabilities and is working to bring inclusiveness to Indian society through sports.
