Success Stories

  • Vinodh

    I am vinod and I am blind Since childhood I first went to a normal school Then I was told to go to a blind school, however due to certain circumstances I couldn’t continue there, and so I sat at home not knowing what to do.I sat at home for twenty eight years. I then heard Tiffany’s interview on the radio, and heard that she goes every where alone and she does all things alone.She urged me to come for training and I went. Jyothirgamaya taught me how to use a white cane, and walk my self without depending upon others. However, we have to depend upon others to a certain extent while walking on the road. but she taught me the ways to be independent to some degree.Now I have a job in Kerala federation for the blind, I am a daisy editor.Tiffany and Jyothirgamaya is the reason for this or else I would have still been at home as I was earlier.
