Ability Unlimited Foundation is India's first professional dance theatre for persons with disabilities. This registered public charitable voluntary organization is dedicated to the cause and care of people with disabilities. AUF utilizes art as a vehicle to broaden the perspective and resolve issues including facing people with disabilities. It is committed to changing the apathy, negativity and fear that surrounds the education, employment and arts through the specially designed professional dance-theatre performances and innovative methodology as 'seeing is believing.' It gives the message of equality, dignity, equal opportunities and full participation of disabled people so that they can be on the same platform as the non-disabled. Our mission is to help the differently-abled all around the world realize their potential and to spread the joy of dance and theater.
Ability Unlimited Foundation artistes performed at House of Commons at London, Cananda, USA and many parts of India. The moving speed of AUF artistes on wheel chairs are 150 Kms/hr and spinning speed of Wheel chairs are faster than Ballets Dancers spins. When they perform on stage they bring out indomitable spirit. They perform with great perfection and with the message 'They don't need mercy… They need Opportunity'
In Indian Sign Language, waiving hands is sign for clapping. Since there were some deaf performers in the group of Ability Unlimited Foundation, it was necessary to train the audience about the way to applaud the performers.
Adobe was founded in December 1982 by John Warnock and Charles Geschke, who established the company after leaving Xerox PARC in order to develop and sell the PostScript page description language. In 1985, Apple Computer licensed PostScript for use in its LaserWriter printers, which helped spark the desktop publishing revolution. The company name Adobe comes from Adobe Creek in Los Altos, California, which ran behind the houses of both of the company's founders. Adobe acquired its former competitor, Macromedia, in December 2005, which added newer software products and platforms such as ColdFusion, Dreamweaver, Flash and Flex to its product portfolio.

Celebrations at Noida started with quick welcome of all employees and then quick speech by Adobe India veterans, who shared some inspiring facts about Adobe Systems and India Campus. Then some of the CSR volunteers were awarded to recognize their efforts in different areas. Adobe CSR is one of the biggest program in our country and Adobe as a company is focused about it's social responsibilities. After the quick round of award distributions Ability Unlimited started performing and they presented different flavors of performances. During the end, a great fireowork show and some snacks :)
