MISSION: TO CHANGE THE LIFE OF BLIND WOMEN IN INDIA
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.
