Providing a quality Education to the visually challenged is proven to be very hard, to the point where a lot of visually and physically challenged individuals have learned to get used to the idea that they will not ever reach their goals and ambitions in life. This is what we are aiming to change. Helping them get access to quality education and at the same time providing for all their basic needs while studying is the path that we are taking to keep the motivated.
This project would benefit over 50 visually and physically challenged individuals combined. With the ratio of 1:8 teacher-student ratio, we aim to achieve the following;

• To provide better future for the visually and physically challenged individuals.
• To give them hope for the future and keep them motivated and positive in all aspects of life.
• To inspire people and other underprivileged individuals.
• To pack them with knowledge and skills that they could use in their day to day life.

Because of this project, we look for improvements in these aspects,

• Well-maintained facilities for the students.
• Better access to educational materials such as books, computers, musical instruments etc.,
• Trained teachers that will cater for their needs.
