Challenge

The higher education options (after SSLC) are comparatively lesser in small cities and for children with special needs, the accessibility is further less. Compared to boys, the girls with visual disabilities get very little opportunity to explore the higher education options due to several social issues. Additionally, for the parents of these girls in an economically backward situation, it is not affordable for them to send their children to cities where higher education options are more.

Solution

Mitra Jyothi supports the higher education of visually impaired girl students by providing the cost of college fees, books, and other assistance for the student along with residential support. The education support along with food and accommodation facilities helps many visually impaired girls from remote and rural locations to access higher education. Otherwise, it would have been very difficult or impossible for them to stay in a city like Bangalore for continuing their studies.

Long-Term Impact

Education is a powerful tool for achieving socio-economic independence and empowerment. The opportunities for higher education are the first step of empowerment of these visually impaired girls. Through the education support program, Mitra Jyothi is providing them the opportunity to access higher education and also helping them to be empowered. Higher education and other skill development enable these girls to be eligible for various employment opportunities and lead independent life.
