MISSION: TO CHANGE THE LIFE OF BLIND WOMEN IN INDIA

India has 15 Million Blind Women Surprisingly ,only 5% of them are capable to earn a living.

Blind women in India are confined to perpetual darkness of the fears of society and poverty. A girl child, that too blind is considered burden by her own family.

WE EMPOWER THEM TO DREAM

We at NAB India Centre for Blind Women & Disability Studies, welcome blind women from all walks of life - urban and rural, to their second home and in some cases their Only home! We teach them both modern and contemporary professional skills/crafts which help them rediscover themselves and give them a new lease of life!

They, too, are an integral part of our society. We diligently work towards making them believe in this!

* Special thanks to Media India Group for capturing the best.

LET BLINDNESS NO LONGER BE A DISABILITY
which limits a woman to aspire, to reach her true potential and to be both financially & emotionally independent.

I was determined to stand on my own feet and never be dependent on my family member. Today I am a therapist at PayU. I went through all the basic training along with my interested course of Massage. I am totally blind but with the help of mobility training provided at the Centre I commute independently with ease.

Rajni

I had never imagined that my life could have a brighter side. I was a very old student of NAB India Centre for Blind Women. I was in charge of the cafe department where I learnt various culinary skills along with kitchen management. I am happily married now and run my family at my ease. I thank the centre for making this happen.
