Blind Children’s School
Blind children in the poorest regions of India face a bleak future. Without specialised schooling they remain a burden on their family and many become beggars.
The Amar Jyoti Trust is helping to build a new school for blind children in Jharkhand State, a poor region of north-east India. The school will take in blind children aged 6 to 12 from local villages, and teach them to read and write in Braille, so that they can make something of their lives. The children are all very poor, some orphaned or abandoned.
This short video explains how you can give a future to these children.
