Asha Deepa School for the Blind, Bidar (ADSFB) is a residential school for blind children from the rural and semi-urban areas in Bidar and surrounding districts. Asha Bangalore is supporting a substantial portion of the entire expenses of the school and the boarding operations.
Mr. Dilip Kumar who was born visually impaired started the Jeevan Prakash Educational society in December 2003 to help the visually impaired in Bidar and the surrounding districts; the main motivation was the immense dissatisfaction with the government aided school in the Bidar area and the lack of other institutions for rehabilitation of the visually impaired in the area. One of the main efforts has been to start the ADSFB residential school for the education and rehabilitation of the visually impaired in the area.
