Challenge

In India a blind daughter is a stigma and therefore Education is not even thought off for her and she has to live a life of poverty, insecurity and dependence. There are very few quality schools for them and they are denied basic rights, leaving them to suffer ill health disgrace and total neglect.

Solution

We provide quality and relevant education and training and a secure residential space for blind girls. To help them to become empowered , productive and dignified self dependent citizens.

Long-Term Impact

Once these blind girls are empowered, we inculcate in them the desire and responsibility to further help and support other blind girls. This will ensure that blind females claim their rightful space in mainstream society to make a better world.
