Esha (www.braillecards.org and www.clabil.org) is an initiative by volunteers to make life better for the blind. We use the word blind because its neutral. There is no disability, challenge or special ability attached to this. We are blind means we cannot see. Period. Just like you are sighted means you can see.

Junta Center Visit by students of SOIL and The Sri Ram School
What happens when you put 3 MBA students in a school bus, and ask them to represent Esha for a field visit for 7th class students of The Sri Ram School?
While you enjoy the pictures.. do read their experiences:
Today we had a visit to blind school. The
main objective of this school was to train blind people to make them
independent enough in life. The activities include learning Braille cards,
musical instruments, basic understanding of computer applications, chair
weaving and many more. The day started when we boarded school bus, after around
10 years. I felt nostalgic by revisiting that phase. It was really inspiring to
see people working hard to train them. I was amused to see dedication of
students and the eagerness with which they were learning new things.
It’s a difficult phase of life wherein you
to need to motivate yourself to learn new things. To get out of disappointment
and have self-control is appreciable for those students. I felt that people
crib on little things when they have all the resources to overcome the
situation. These students had limited resources and they were utilizing their
resources to maximize their learning and thus use it as a talent to make them independent,
employable and lead their life. I consider them as inspirational leaders who
have the thinking to bring a change in society and create awareness among
visually impaired society.
