Sponsor school uniforms for visually challenged

by Indian Association for the Blind


This project helps provide new uniforms and new sandals for our 120 visually challenged beneficiaries from rural areas. They are all between the age groups of 12- 20 years. This project aims to help students pursuing grade 6-12. Through this project, each visually challenged student will be able to get the pleasure of having their own set of uniforms and sandals.

These young visually challenged children are from very remote areas. They are from poor financial backgrounds. The earnings of their parents are very low. Due to this, they struggle to meet even their basic needs. As we know, one of these needs, apart from food and shelter is clothing. But their families are so much affected by poverty that they are unable to purchase even a basic, decent dress for themselves. Due to this, they are unable to face people boldly and their potentials are not known.


The donations we receive through this project will help provide the best quality of uniform sets and sandals for 120 visually challenged students studying in our school. Their dream of wearing new clothes and being on par with students from other schools will be fulfilled. It will help in their gaining confidence and self-esteem. This will in turn help them concentrate on studies. These donations will spread happiness and smiles among these children whose have only dreamt of wearing new clothes.

Long-Term Impact

By way of one basic need being fulfilled, they will be driven to fulfill their other needs and find a way out of poverty for themselves and for their family.This very thought will push them to concentrate and perform well in both academics as well as extra curricular activities. By good performance and education they can reach great heights in life and know the importance of neat presentation of one's self to impress others and gain their confidence.This will be passed on to future generations.
