Mobile blind school

It has been observed that many blind people in Kerala are unable to move around unaided, and are hence totally depended on their sighted counterparts to take them to and fro. They are confined within the four walls of their homes. One of the main reasons behind this is lack of awareness, poverty, long distance, and also negligence on the part of parents and guardians. Many parents are reluctant to bring their blind children to the training centers. As a solution to this problem, Jyothirgamaya provides them with need-based individualized training at their places of residence. It is a unique approach, where the school is taken to their doorsteps.

Participants are taught different skills paving the way for a productive life, and the training is tailored to their needs.
