This organization is working in the most backward part of Dahod-Panchmahal Districts of Gujarat state. The people living in this area are poor, illiterate and belong to tribal casts (Adivasis). We work for all categories of disabled, like
- Visual Impairment (V.I).
- Hearing Impairment (H.I)
- Mental Retardation (M.R)
- Loco-motor disability (Orthopedically Handicapped)
- and all other associated disabilities.
In this area, the disability rate is quite high because of the lack of nutritious food, lack of awareness and illiteracy of these tribal people. There were only no agencies in this area working field of disability. In this time and situation, in August 2000 the Trust named BLIND WELFARE COUNCIL was established. In this trust there are 11 trustees. 8 out of them are with Visual Impairment. These all trustees had made an aim to help the disabled so that they may not face the difficulties in life and can acquire a good status and position in the society.
All the trustees with Visual Impairment are in a good position in society as they are doing Government jobs. They have faced great problems in life for attaining this position and they have decided they shall not allow other disabled of this area to face such difficulties. Moreover, they have aimed to help the disabled, so that they can become independent and live their life with pride and self-respect, By that, they can come in the main life stream of the society and remain a part of the society.
