Divya Jyothi Charitable trust for the Blind was set up to provide a helping hand to the blind. Our trust believes blindness is not a handicap but an opportunity in seeing the world, living in it differently and uniquely. Our goal is to provide high standard welfare, support the visually impaired through education, employment, scholarships and accommodation to promote their independence, dignity and quality of life.

We hope to make sustainable, self-managed, participative changes to blind people's lives, be it through teaching how to read and write Braille, or providing access to a Braille library, and in the long run provide advocacy measures with the Government of India to promote improved policy making or through financial assistance. The primary objective of the trust is Celebration of life by embracing blindness and not seeing it as hurdle.

Functioning in a High-tech World

  • Technology has become a necessity in today's world. Not to be equipped with information and technological tools is like living in medieval times and for a blind person not being able to use ICT (Information & Communication Technology) tools makes living all the more isolated in this rapidly advancing world. Take for example, touch screens on your phones, or even a basic computer with a screen and a mouse – all these are rendered useless to a blind person and there are no easy or affordable alternatives to this. The use of a computer today is almost a basic necessity for survival. Therefore it has become of prime importance that the blind need to be given training in order to operate ICTs. This can go a long way in improving the quality and effectiveness and acceptance of a blind person.
