Residential school for blind girls in Vishakhapatnam gets a makeover!
June 20, 2018
There is some good news for students of the Government Residential School for Visually Challenged Girls at Yendada in Vishakhapatnam. Their dining hall just got a huge makeover with accessibility features!
The new accessible dining hall has a seating capacity of 100 people and was renovated at a cost of Rs six lakh. The project was completed by Divis Laboratories Limited as part of its CSR activity.
The idea came after a top official at Divis Laboratories noticed the difficulties faced by blind girls while accessing the hall. He then decided to order specially designed chairs and tables for the children studying here. The new furniture is made of steel. The glasses will be placed on the tables in such a way that they do not fall down.
The company has said it would build a new dormitory for the blind girls here as well that will be accessible and have all the facilities needed.
