Empowering the visually challenged population of India
  • The problems faced by a visually impaired person in India range from lack of basic necessities to denying the right of social inclusion and the prevailing social stigma attached to it. Founded way back in 1952, National Association for the Blind India (NAB) began its mission to eliminate issues as such and selflessly serve the blind.
  • Initiatives by NAB India: i) Blindness Prevention. ii) Integrated Education, Distribution of Braille kits, Publishing Talking books and Braille Press & Library. iii) Vocational Training and Employment to the Blind. iv) Community Based Rehabilitation and Recreation. v) Research library and Advocacy. vi) Women's Empowerment.
  • Impact: In 2019, Braille Press printed 207,416 volumes together including school textbooks. The Talking Book library now has 2700+ beneficiaries enrolled with them. Training Center for Teachers had 19 visually impaired trainees for their 18th batch. 720 blind individuals across 15 states were provided with free aids and necessary equipment.
