Who We Are

The Purple Bench Initiative.

Misconceptions contribute to the largest burden of illness in people living with epilepsy and leads to stigma and discrimination. This instills feelings of shame, embarrassment and disgrace. The emotional impact results in social exclusion and limited social participation.

At the PURPLE BENCH INITIATIVE, we are driven by a single goal: To empower, making a difference through awareness.  We champion inclusivity and productivity of people living with epilepsy as well as their care givers, that they are then able to achieve their full potential and be relevant contributors to our society. 

To this end we disseminate information about epilepsy and provide a support system for individuals, families,  communities and institutions.
