In Jharkhand we support a centre for 60 visually impaired children. The home is run by nurses and special educators who are trained to take complete care of these children.

The visually impaired children receive educational support, are trained to read and write in Braille in Hindi and English with the aid of appropriate special equipment. They are also taught all the skills to manage daily life tasks such as orientation and mobility in all kind of situations and places, recognition of objects, tidying up, etc. Extracurricular activities such as music and dance also have an important place in the centre, the children all turn out to be very talented and quickly learn to play instruments. They play sports every day, including cricket, football and volleyball. All these children also receive regular medical care and are made aware of hygiene issues.

Our goal is to make these children independent, confident and happy! We want them to become responsible citizens, able to interact with the world, able to work and contribute to society.
