Victoria Memorial School for the Blind, The, was established to ameliorate the condition of the blind and by imparting to them instruction on the principles well known in the West and teaching them domestic handicrafts which would enable them to earn a livelihood.

In 1904 the Trust set up The Victoria Memorial School for the Blind (VMSB) for the education and rehabilitation of visually handicapped children. Since then VMSB has been continuously providing free education along with free lodging and boarding and other amenities for the welfare of visually impaired blind boys.

Children are trained in performing arts, arts and crafts, computer education, sports, photography, a massage course and an arithmetic programme called the Universal Concept of Mental Arithmetic System to help children solve tough academic problems and increase their memory power.

The school also equips their students to work as professionals. Many of their past students work as computer operators, masseurs, telephone operators, event managers and teachers.
