NGO Vision Aid is a ray of hope for blind people
Vision Aid Charitable Services is an NGO based in Visakhapatnam in Andhra Pradesh. It is offering help to people who are blind or have low vision.
Dr. M S Raju started Vision Aid in 2004 at the age of 70 years. He realized that there is a lack of support for blind people in India.
Most people in India are not aware that vision impairment can be a genetic problem, without a cure.
It is vital to find ways that can help blind people become a part of the society. This can be done by creating educational and employment opportunities for them.
Vision Aid provides free classes. The classes include subjects like skill development, English language, and computer training. The aim is to enable blind people with skills so they can become independent.
The study module is extremely flexible. People can learn as per their convenience and time.
Vision Aid is also involved in the creation of assistive devices for people with vision impairments.
