Blind people come across various challenges in their day-to-day life viz. Education, Employment, Health, Rehabilitation.
Many a times V.I. students studying in Mumbai & Thane region. can not appear for their Annual exams due to unavailability of Writers. In addition, many of them fail to give various competitive exams conducted by different Government agencies.
In the Healthcare, many blind patients approaching Govt.Hospitals, find it difficult to complete the formalities like form-filling etc. due to illiteracy and feel helpless. At such times,they need a helping hand to run from ward to ward and at different desks.
Looking at this unfortunate situation, our organization has started a new project “Volunteer Bank” to lend a helping hand to V.I. people at various levels. The person willing to work at least 2hrs.per week shall be allotted membership of this project.
Whenever we receive intimation from a V.I. person about their need for assistance, we inform the volunteer from that vicinity and help to establish the contact with each other.
As this project is just in its infancy, we have less no. of volunteers at present.
Thus, we appeal for your participation in this noble project and spread this message to like-minded people. Your contribution will certainly help V.I. people largely in making their lives easy.
