WE AIM TO CHANGE DISABILITY INTO ABILITY ENABLING THE BLIND
National Association for the Blind-Delhi, is the largest chain of non-government voluntary organization in India. We have 23 state and 65 district level branches to reach the large number of visually challenged people. The Delhi State Branch was established in 1979, and since then, it has undertaken various projects, which have immensely benefited the visually impaired and also successfully integrated them into the mainstream of life. The Association has a team of highly qualified and experienced personnel that makes its services qualitative. Its personnel are invited for expert opinion to large number of National and International Fora.
In 2008 the Organization was awarded the prestigious National Award by the Govt. of India for its admirable endeavors. It has been working perseveringly to make visually challenged persons-both children and adults- self-reliant and contributing members of the society. It aims to reach to a maximum number of visually impaired persons working in tandem with its 23 state and district level branches.
It has undertaken several rural and urban projects aiming to impart a dignified life to a blind child, youth and an aged. The projects cover a multitude of activities ranging from education to old age home for aged blind. Nevertheless, the Organization lays special emphasis on education and skill development. It aims to send each and every visually challenged child into mainstream school. It highly advocates the concept of integrated education for social fulfillment. It also dreams to embed computer education and assistive technology into the lives of every visually impaired bringing them closer to the world. It ardently focuses on qualitative education and skill development.
