Training and Educational Kit Distribution Program for Visually Impaired Students, Gorkha

Taking yet another initiative to help the children with special needs, NJSI organized a training program and distribution of educational material to twelve visually impaired students (nine girls and three boys) of Saraswati Secondary School in Aalekh, Grokha on 28th May 2018 in collaboration with the Bright Star Society.

Being an organization of the differently abled persons, Bright Star Society has always been proactive to bridge the gap between people with and without disabilities. NJSI has been collaborating with them to organize multiple programs as such. The distributed package contained school bags, white canes, braille papers, geometry kits, talking calculators, slate, stylus (braille pen) and audio players with pen drives; also, stationaries were given to partially blinded students. The training program included interactive sessions on use of these proficient devices, general mobility, games, arts and music.

We hope the training program and devices equip them with confidence to lead their life independently.
