Delhi travel agency hires only blind women
32-year-old Delhi-based entrepreneur Akash Bhardwaj has started a travel agency named Khaas that employs only blind women.
Akash was inspired to start this initiative when he met an acid attack survivor who was selling balloons to look after her two children. She was abandoned by her husband and had lost her job due to the acid scars on her face.
To help and support people like her, Akash’s travel agency provides training and employment to six blind women currently.
The travel agency organizes domestic and international tours for corporate, schools, colleges, family trips and adventure camps. All the work is done by vision impaired employees with no external help.
