Divya Jyothi is completely dependent on the donations they receive from multiple donors that can be erratic in nature resulting in delayed payments. They are primarily in need of a constant source of financial support to operate their computer training center. Funds from Asha for Education will enable Divya Jyothi to employ two computer trainers and a driver for continuous operation of the computer training center.
The organization's goal is to provide high standard welfare, support the visually impaired through education, employment, scholarships and accommodation to promote their independence, dignity and quality of life.
