Cricket academy for visually impaired in Kerala giving life lessons
India's first-ever cricket academy for visually impaired is in Kerala and is run by the Cricket Association for the Blind.
The academy has 17 school children who are from almost all parts of Kerala. The academy started with weekend classes last year and this year has launched a 10 day camp at the School for the Blind in Aluva.
The aim of the academy is not just to teach cricket to the visually impaired children. It also wants them to learn skills that will help them in their lives.
The game has helped the visually impaired children become independent and a lot more like other children.
