Gujarat NGOs for blind people ensure scribes are prepared for board exams
NGOs in Gujarat are making sure that there is no confusion over exam writers or scribes for the board exams this year.
Every precaution is being taken to ensure that blind students are able to take their exams well. There have been instances when exam writers or scribes promise to come, but back out on the day of the exam. This has led to many blind students missing out on taking their exams. In some cases, some blind students have even lost a year.
The Blind People's Association (BPA) is one of Gujarat's oldest organizations. It has 46 students under its wing who are taking the board exams this year. The NGO is in constant touch with the scribes.
Manubhai Chaudhary, Principal of BPA School, has said that his organization has taken the required permissions from parents and schools regarding the exam writers. They are also taking a letter of commitment from the exam writer that he or she will appear for the exam of the blind student without fail.
