Majority of the visually challenged youths are much efficient & interested to become an Entrepreneur. As they are from impoverished families which rely largely on the income of the visually challenged entrepreneurs for their sustenance. As Food & Accommodation expenses consume a lion share of their income, they find it hard to meet out. Your support of food & accommodation will help them to execute their work with competence.


This year, IAB has expanded its network to other major cities like Chennai, Bangalore, Hyderabad, and Mumbai for providing employment for the young visually challenged entrepreneurs by supporting them in installing pop stalls in corporate premises. As their income provides for their family needs, they are in need of someone to take care of their personal needs. Hence IAB seeks your financial support to provide food & accommodation facilities for the training.

Long-Term Impact

Nearly 10 visually impaired youth and their families are getting benefitted from this ongoing program. This support will create the ability to better manage their finances, be confident of their rights and skills in a workplace environment and take care of their families. Your support will make a huge difference in the lives of Poor elderly visually impaired.
