The project will help blind youth to come out of poverty and deprivation within one year time ensuring their equal opportunity rights and dignity is respected and projected. This would change the negative attitude towards persons with disability. The blind youth will emerge as wellness professionals & contribute significantly by serving people suffering health problems.
