Moving forward with optimism

Everything was going perfectly for thirty-one-year-old Sudhir Kumar from Jehanabad, Bihar. Married and father to three children, he worked as an accountant to fend for his family. This short-lived secured life ended when he was prescribed medication by the doctor for an eye irritation that reacted adversely, causing sudden vision loss. After extensive and prolonged treatment, the doctor could only restore 20 % of his vision. During this period, he had to let go of his job causing financial distress to the family.

Despite being faced with challenges, Sudhir Kumar believed he was still capable of taking up another job to support his family. As the only working member of the family, he was determined to change things. When he heard about Eyeway helpline from a low vision care unit, he called up to seek employment opportunities. Realizing the need for re-orientation, the Eyeway counselor suggested him various training centers where he could learn mobility and skills like technology and computer usage. This set of skills would help Sudhir become employable and carry out his work independently in his daily life.

Meanwhile, Sudhir has cleared Tier I Staff Selection Commission Multi-Tasking Examination and is preparing for the second paper due shortly.

Looking forward to the training, Sudhir is willing to go to any extent to learn various skills and equip himself for new opportunities so his children can continue with their education and have a bright future.
