“Children with special needs particularly from the rural areas often do not have access to an inclusive education. Our goal is to make STEM approachable to the visually impaired students. We create STEM content for students in the form of Braille books, audio books, and tactile diagrams for students at all grades. By introducing them to the government schools in rural areas of Karnataka we aim to empower the visually impaired students. We are glad to collaborate with Sankara Eye Hospital for this initiative.” said Vidhya Y, Co-founder & Trustee of Vision Empower as per the press release
