Bengaluru trust assists blind students to pursue higher education
32 years old Subbaraydu K. from Andhra Pradesh is partially blind by birth.
Since school days, Subbaraydu was interested in sports and represented his school at the state and national level sports meets in cricket, volleyball and athletics.
After completing his graduation and working for some years, Subbaraydu decided to do something for the disabled community.
He founded the Deepaanjali Trust for the Disabled in Bengaluru and opened a hostel to provide accommodation, education, training and assistance with personality development to the blind students studying in different colleges.
The idea is to help the blind people lead a life with dignity and self-respect.
Subbaraydu also trains interested blind students in the sports they like. Deepaanjali is reportedly the only blind trust to have a kabaddi team.
