Challenge

These visually challenged students are from rural areas.So most of them are ignorant to advancements in the field of computers and technology.They live a very difficult life without these assistive devices as they are unaware of their uses and mostly, they are not even aware of the existence of such assistive devices.Also, their poor financial backgrounds stop them from exploring new avenues.Hence,they will succumb to the stereotypes held by the society about the visually challenged.

Solution

Through this project, we will be able to provide computer training, educate the visually impaired on the numerous technological advancements, make them employable and industry ready, make them acquire the skills required to face the world, help them connect socially and educate them on the use of these assistive devices.

Long-Term Impact

By way of receiving these devices and mastering their usage, they will be able to lead lives of self-reliance and dignity. It is a very good opportunity for them to delve deeper into themselves and realise their strengths and abilities. This will in turn help in their becoming productive members of society and role models for the future generations.
