Nabet empowers the blind by giving them jobs in the IT sector
October 26, 2017
National Association for the Blind (Employment & Training) Nabet India has empowered more than 500 blind people by giving them jobs using information technology.
The idea came to Usha Mishra after she observed the difficulties faced by visually impaired people.
Usha started the training centre in 2011 along with her husband Commodore Sridhar Mishra, who is an electronics engineer.
With the support of IT experts, they developed training and employment courses that can help the blind people get regular jobs.
The centre also organises various health camps, eye-care programmes and counselling sessions to give primary care to the blind people and spread awareness about training programmes.
Computer literacy programmes for children and girl child are also held.
