Finding the Right Support

Twenty-three-year-old Pranali Daware was born with low vision in Mumbai, Maharashtra. Coming from a low income family, Pranali lost her father at an early age. Her mother supports the family through her income from a job in a private school. Her parents tried to seek various medical interventions to reverse their daughter’s eyesight but at the age of five, due to optic nerve damage, she became totally blind. The family had no idea of how and where to educate a child with vision impairment. It was only some years later when they met a blind couple that they learnt about a special school in Dadar. Pranali was sent to Kamala Mehta Special Residential school where she learned to read and write using Braille script. She also acquired mobility skills to navigate independently. After completing Class X and XII, she secured a BA degree from Mumbai University. After graduation, she was desperate to find herself a job so she could support her mother financially. But she was clueless about job opportunities for persons with blindness. That’s when she contacted the Eyeway Helpdesk where the counsellor suggested her to gain some employability skills before applying for job roles. Read More

About us & Our founder

In 1989, our CEO, George Abraham, visited a school for the blind for the first time in New Delhi. What he witnessed there shook him to the core. The services were poor, the facilities sub-standard, and the curriculum watered down. He asked some of the teachers about the future of those children. The reply was prompt and delivered in a monotone, as if it were a pre-conditioned response: “Some of them make it to the university, many of them fall by the wayside.” It was then that George realized his privilege, born into a family that recognized his potential and invested in his education and skills. This realization ignited his passion to advocate for visually impaired individuals.

Cricket for the blind was his first initiative. He organized the first national tournament in 1990, established the World Blind Cricket Council in 1996 and conceived the first World Cup at New Delhi in 1998. With the support from British Airways, in 1998, he also conducted a series of over 60 two-day workshops with around 2000 young blind boys and girls across India. Travelling across the country for cricket and the workshops, George interacted with blind people and their families, educationists, corporate executives, bureaucrats, politicians, medical professionals and media persons and through these interactions, three facts emerged clearly,

  • The number of blind and visually impaired people in the country was The Census puts it at 5.4 million while the WHO count is over 60 million. 
  • Most people knew very little about living life with blindness and viewed it with skepticism and prejudice. They saw blind people as individuals who needed help and had to be provided
  • On the other hand, blind people who received quality education and exposure were leading fulfilling lives in the mainstream of the

George realized that ‘Blindness was not the real problem but the challenge actually was the mindset of people towards visual impairment’. Given this understanding, George set up Score Foundation in 2002 and launched Project in 2004 as a single- stop knowledge resource for the blind and visually impaired people of India.

Score Foundations envisions a future where people with visual impairment are regarded as full fledged members of family, community and society. Our motto reads :

Space for all

Contribution for all

Opportunity for all

Recognition for all

Equality for all

Score Foundation

Vision Impairment should not be considered limiting. Lives are built on dreams, ambitions, discipline, will power and hard work. They definitely are not built on one’s ability to see or not see. 

Given proper training, guidance and opportunity, blindness can be merely reduced to a physical condition.

Score Foundation is a registered non-profit trust set up to work with Persons with Blindness and Vision Impairment. Over twenty percent of the world’s visually impaired population resides in India. Looked upon with pity and viewed as objects of charity, they often find themselves treated unfairly by family, society and the government. They are not given the same opportunities as their sighted counterparts. Their limited access to information prevents them from leading independent and productive lives.

Score Foundation endeavors to change people’s mindset towards blindness and visual impairment, and in the process, initiate a conversation on how to lead a life with blindness. Score Foundation believes that blindness is not the real problem; rather, it is the mindset. Individuals who are blind are potentially part of the country’s human resource and should be invested in. Our dream is to be able to reach every blind and visually impaired person in the country with knowledge and content that will inform, inspire and empower them to realise their potential.

Score Foundation through Project Eyeway disseminates information, connects people who need help with resources, advocates when people are discriminated against, and actively engages with sighted stakeholders through sensitization sessions.
