NGO Profile :
Blind Welfare Council, Dahod was established to work for disabled individuals by providing them with shelter, education, and medical care. They also aim at equipping and empowering people with disabilities.

The organization works in the Dahod and Panchmahal districts of Gujarat. Some of their main activities are:

  • Inclusive Education for Disabled Children at the Secondary Stage (IEDSS): With the support of the Government, BWC provides special teachers according to a child’s specific disability from the 9th to 12th standards. These children have visual, auditory, or developmental challenges. Under this programme, over 1,094 children are provided educational kits, one pair of school uniform, and additional tools like tricycle, crutches, hearing aids, tape recorders, and wheel chairs depending on their needs.
  • Lalit Bahuiklang Paathshaala and Residential School: The residential school currently has 98 children with multiple disabilities; of which 62 are boys and 36 are girls. The organisation provides these children with shelter, training, and education. The Day Care Centre also provides education and training to 47 children.
  • Industrial Training Centre & Vocational Training Centre: With a mission to train people with disabilities and to enable them to earn a livelihood, BWC is running an Industrial Training Centre (ITC) where they conduct a Computer operator course. Through the Vocational Training Centre, BWC trains children in making paper dishes, candles, chalks, door mats, decorative items, glass paintings, greeting cards, etc.
  • Day Care Center: BWC has set up a Day Care center for children with mental disabilities. The kids are trained and educated for an all-round development by well trained teachers free of cost. A total of 50 children have been enrolled till date.
  • Early Intervention Center: Children between ages 0-6 identified as disabled are assessed according to their abilities and disabilities under this program. The children then undergo sensory training and counseling at intervals to ensure lesser trouble in daily activities in the future.
