Our eyes are the most precious gift of nature. As per statistics, we use our eyes for almost 70% of our interaction with the outside world. Imagine a world without vision!
There are more then 5.4 million people who are blind they live in a world of darkness, largely dependent on others, unable to enjoy the world around them. Imagine people who are poor and blind unfortunately, many of them lead a life of destitution on the fringes of society.
Score Foundation is an NGO for the visually impaired who have done awesome work. They believe that blindness is not the real problem but the way society thinks about the blind. Score Foundation is leading change at two levels. Firstly, to empower the blind so they can merge in the mainstream of society. Secondly to build awareness in the general populace and help create a level playing field. This is so that blind people can realize their potential. They have succeeded in bringing organizational support on a common platform from across the country.
I have always admired their efforts and today, I am proud to announce that I am finally taking action to contribute towards this noble cause. I am running 21 kms to raise funds for Score Foundation's mission. As I sweat it out , please do contribute and support my effort.
We believe blind people are potentially a part of the human resource of the country. They must be invested in. and not merely provided for.
