Project Report: Empowering Visually Impaired 'Girl Child' Through Higher Education - A Mitra Jyothi Initiative

Introduction:

Mitra Jyothi's program focuses on the holistic empowerment of visually impaired 'Girl Child' from marginalized societies, providing them with comprehensive support for higher education. The regular undergraduate program spans over 5 years, during which the girls reside at Mitra Jyothi's facilities and complete their studies. Currently, three girls are enrolled at the Government First Grade Pre-University College, Agara, and four girls are enrolled at the Government First Grade Degree College, Agara. Two are completing their first year in Bachelor of Arts and two are completing their second year in Bachelor of Arts.

By providing a conducive environment and necessary resources, the program enables visually impaired girls to pursue higher education. These seven girls are a testimony to the program's success in fostering educational growth.

Beyond academics, Mitra Jyothi recognizes the importance of holistic development. The girls are equipped with essential life skills, including mobility training using the white cane. Independent living skills are imparted to enhance self-sufficiency and freedom, while spoken English, fitness training, and soft skills contribute to their overall personal growth.
