Challenge

India is home to more than 40 Million Visually Impaired. Majority of them do not have access to education, social stigma another cause and are not aware of the opportunities. The Youths especially in rural India, lack the privilege of good education and access to any information technology. With most industries adopting internet and new technology for its operations, the traditional employment opportunities for the blind - such as operating public telephone booths - are dwindling.

Solution

Operating computers and using the internet is a great skill that the Visually Challenged person can be educated on. With simple text-to-speech software like JAWS and accessibility tools, the blind can learn to navigate the PC and the World Wide Web like any other person. This education leads to recruitment opportunities for IT related jobs like Technical Writing, Customer Service, and Non-IT jobs like HR consultancy, Marketing and Banking Services.

Long-Term Impact

Our vision is to empower differently abled communities and making self-sustainable by motivating people throughout the world to open their minds, accept and support people with disabilities. With your support Snehadeep Educates and Empowers around 200 youths in different programmes in a year and ultimately preparing them to compete with the Sighted at various levels in the Job Market. This training project enables the students to become economically independent.
