Visually impaired children ride bicycles in Tamil Nadu
Many blind children at the Indian Association for the Blind in Madurai, Tamil Nadu fulfilled their dream of riding bicycles, which was once thought to be unachievable to them.
Amway India as part of their corporate social responsibility activities donated 10 tandem bicycles to these blind children to celebrate International White Cane Day, which was observed on 15 October.
The cycles helped the blind children realise their dream of riding bicycles with a sighted person on the pilot seat and the blind person as the stoker.
The initiative also helped in increasing the self-confidence of blind children and gave them a feeling of independence.
