Work and Achievements
Encouraging education among the visually challenged and bring them into the main stream of the society and generating employment as many visually challenged as possible are the main aims of our organization to come into existence.
In this connection all the needed printed matter specially academic oriented books are transcribed into Braille and distributed to the needy college going visually impaired students throughout the state at free of cost. More than 500 students are getting benefitted through this activity.
Many of our clients have got gold medals during their career most of them are well placed with gainful employment. We have given employment to 25 persons among whom, the lion share given to the visually impaired girls.
We are running two hostels one at Bangalore which accommodates 25 girls and another at Mysore accommodate 20 boys. All these inmates are from distant rural areas of the state belonging to BPL families. These inmates are provided with free boarding and lodging and Braille textbooks to pursue their higher studies comfortably.
