Hi Bhavna. I have a friend who is visually challenged. He is an engineer and lost his eyesight in an accident. He is desperately looking for a job, but not finding one. Can you suggest a resource?

Answer : Hello. I am sorry to hear about your friend. There are some resources where he should be able to get the appropriate advice and help. One well-known resource is which works towards enabling persons with blindness and visual impairment to become independent and economically self-reliant.
They can be reached at 1800 53 20469 from from Monday to Friday between 10 am and 5 pm. Their website is http://www.eyeway.org/.
Another well known organisation is Enable India which also works to empower people with disabilities in the space of education, skilling and employment. Their website is http://www.enableindia.org/.
All the best to him.
