AccioMango Pvt. Ltd. is a community-based startup, managed and operated by Deaf professionals with more than 5 years of experience in the field. Our goal is to innovate solutions and create social impact on advocating for equality and opportunities for the Indian Deaf community in compliance with the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (RPWD) Act, 2016.

The Story behind the Name

  • The word ‘Accio’ is derived from the famous Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. It means “I summon” in Latin.

  • The word ‘Mango’ comes from the king of fruits and is also the national fruit of India.

  • Why is the name of the company associated with Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire?

Nyle DiMarco, a famous Deaf Model/Actor/Activist, shared his perspective on how Harry Potter is parallel to the Deaf World. Harry is a lonely wizard; he is different from everyone else even from his family. Luckily, he found the magical world of wizards where he finally felt belonged. This applies the same for millions of Deaf individuals. They know they are different from the Hearing world. They strongly feel connected with Deaf community and its strong culture, where sign language holds the highest amount of value.

To put it into a perspective, our aim is to provide the best quality services and products in India ranging from technology-based solutions to promoting Deaf talent through art, from translation services to social entrepreneurship training for the Deaf.


  • Social Accountability: A commitment to invest a portion of the profit in building a Deaf ecosystem to generate opportunities for the Deaf individuals.

  • Equality: Spread awareness on sign language and its importance to gain an understanding and respect for each other.

  • Transparency: To be accountable in fulfilling our mission.

"When we eliminate the barriers to socio-economic inclusion of Persons with Disabilities, we create a safe environment where everyone feels they belong."

- Sanjay Dawar, Managing Director & Lead – Capability Network, Global Network (Argentina, India & Poland) & Strategy

A billion reasons for disability inclusion

The program for inclusion of disabled in the workplace is our way to create a world where everyone feels like they belong.

We are committed to accelerating equality for all and to creating an inclusive, accessible workplace that supports our Accenture persons with disabilities (PwD). And our commitment starts at the top. We create a barrier-free culture that promotes disability inclusion in the workplace. This enables our PwD to bring their unique skills, talents and strengths to contribute and thrive in the workplace.

When we remove barriers—of the mind and in the workplace—we make the world more accessible for everyone. The latest technologies, tools and training help our PwD perform at their full potential. And our strong network of 36,000+ PwD Champions in 52 countries brings our people, allies and friends together to collaborate.

In India, our 6,000+ PwD Champions actively participate in programs and events that engage, celebrate and raise awareness about PwD. Together, we’re enabling change for our people with visible and invisible disabilities.

Inclusion through Indian Sign Language

One of the many ways through which we can drive disability inclusion is how we choose to converse with each other. Learning a new language is a great way to foster inclusive conversations among our peers. For us languages are not just a means of communication through words, locally or internationally but also non-verbal messages through the sign language. We invite you to join us as we learn the Indian Sign Language (ISL) which will in turn lead to deeper human connections amongst us.
