Wish fulfilled

Neeraj Kumar was only 12 years old when he started losing his eyesight. He had to drop out of school as he spent most of his time visiting eye hospitals for diagnosis and cure. Little did he know that his vision loss was permanent. He lost five years trying to figure out what he could do without vision until he learnt about Sarva Shiksha Abhiyaan (SSA) camp for children with disabilities. At the camp, he learnt braille and use of cane for mobility. At SSA, Neeraj was also introduced to another visually impaired boy, Sandeep by his teacher who could help him with extra classes for braille. Sandeep who is a regular Eyeway caller himself, guided Neeraj to contact our helpline citing his own example of transformation.

Now 18, Neeraj was glad to know that there are opportunities for visually impaired people like him. The Eyeway counsellor suggested a yearlong English and computer training from Nari Uday Foundation in Rohtak, Haryana. The counsellor also assured Neeraj that he could live a financially independent life with right skills as he aspired to.

Neeraj is currently undergoing the training suggested by Eyeway along with Sandeep and is happy that he can finally start his life all over again.
