Braille Aid Bank


A Braille Aid Bank was started in the year 1980 with an objective to make available necessary utility, educational and sports items to the needy. The idea is to arrange and provide the best quality products at affordable cost “on no profit no loss” basis. Items which are not locally available are arranged from different manufacturers all over India and sold.

During the year we sold Folding Sticks, Long Canes, Cricket Balls, Pocket Frames, Needle Threaders. Chessboards, Playing Cards, Braille Paper and Learning Devices, Signature guides and other items of daily use for the visually impaired. Our students from Integrated Education Programme are also deriving benefit from this Bank.

The continued functioning of an extension counter sponsored by National Institute for the Visually Handicapped, Dehradun, is immensely benefitting the visually impaired. An easy accessibility of educational and recreational items hitherto not available saves them to undertake unnecessary travel for their procurement.
