Socio Economic Rehabilitation Programs

All blindness cannot be set right. Therefore The Project Vision developed activities to help the permanently blind to live a better life through socio economic assistance. Education, training, job placement, housing,marriages, self-employment and so on are the ways to provide them a new lease of life. Suresh was born blind and he says, “My parents had no words, but only tears to see me without sight. They thought my world would be empty and dark without any happiness and full of challenges. All my relatives and villagers started saying that society will not accept a blind child. They criticized that I would be of no use to anyone.” Suresh’s parents got him an admission in a residential blind school where he struggled toadjust in the new environment with his friends who were all without sight, but he perseveredwith a lot of hope, will power and self-confidence. He worked very hard to get good gradeseach year but unfortunately he had to discontinue his studies after an accident left himimmobile.Suresh is unique with a humble personality, positive attitude towards life, very friendly andrespectful. He completed his SSLC, PUC and later finished his basics in computers.
