Pragna Chakshu

  1. 1. Pragna Chakshu A residential school for young children, teenagers and young adult females who are partially sighted or completely blind. They have now began caring for the elderly too.
  2. 2. These girls get married from and by THE couple who manage the school. The couple are a blind couple themselves. They stay there and look after and educate the residents. Many of the girls see these 2 special people as their parents. They may not have parents, they may have been abandoned as they were born out of wedlock or rejected because of their special need. Can you imagine how special this couple are to all the girls there? Most of the residents do not have a ‘family’ to visit during the holidays. Anyway it was amazing to see what they can do. These girls can fry food, clean, iron clothes, fit fans into the ceiling of a room, sew and much more! Remember, they cannot see! Amazing!
