Target Group : Visually Handicapped People and their Children

Goal: To bring them into mainstream life and provide them a decent life.

Introduction: Blindness is closely related to poverty.  Many of the visually challenged people are living very pitiable life being blind. They cannot move or do their work on their own. They depend upon the mercy and charity of others.  Most of these people cannot see and work, but they need food. So, they go out and beg on the streets Railway / Bus Stations, Temples, Churches, door to door etc. Even if they collect money they cannot count how much they earn and how much is stolen by others from their collection. They totally depend upon others.

The Andhra Pradesh is the fifth largest State in India with approximately 80 million people. Unfortunately accurate data of the blind people is not available. According Child Rights Commission there are 17000 blind children below 16 years age and 25000 blind adults in the state.  Most of the blind people are use to get their daily bread by begging in the streets.
