Welcome to NETHRODAYA
Every single page of Nethrodaya抯 book of memories has been a reason in shaping the solid dream that is today. What remained just a vision in the eyes of the founder a few years ago, slowly and elegantly, over the years, unraveled into a masterpiece called Nethrodaya.Nethrodaya has grown from a tiny seed, to a sapling and finally to a magnificent tree, providing its shade to the differently-abled community and empowering them to face the challenges of life in a confident manner.
Nethrodaya, in 2002, initially started on its eventful journey, with the goal of working on just one initiative of providing a free residential resource centre for visually challenged rural boys who were aspiring to pursue higher education despite odds. This initiative was later extended to girls too.
The next milestone achieved was an in-house reading service for the visually challenged. By this effort, the visually challenged no longer needed to go around searching for those providing reading services. This initiative brought about an efficient clustering of resources by which the visually challenged gained much more. Further, keeping up with the need of the hour, Nethrodaya pioneered in the initiative to provide a part time diploma in computer education for the visually challenged. By this, they could simultaneously pursue their mainstream academics while acquiring the much sought after computer based knowledge.
Nethrodaya also provides a state of art web browsing centre designed specially to serve its purpose for the visually challenged community. This was head turner, as it bridged a major gap in the society, whereby the visually challenged were till then, denied access to a whole world of cyber browsing.
Next, further adding onto its list of proud achievements, Nethrodaya, launched an exclusive shop dedicated to the visually challenged, a one of its kind in the country. This brainchild of Nethrodaya was a revolutionary step in simplifying the day to day lives of the visually challenged. It broke through all barriers to bring the visually challenged to the forefront, equipping them to fight their own battles. Nethrodaya has also made it possible for the blind to access resources of information without depending on the availability of readers and Braille textbooks. Nethrodaya provides the facility of audio books to give 搊n the go?access to the visually challenged community.
Nethrodaya provides other outreach services such as the 24 hour medical helpline, Nethradhenu- the cow project, financially supporting the children of the visually challenged, rehabilitation of blind begging persons and organizing state level and national level sports competitions, including chess, cricket and volleyball, for the visually challenged.
What started as a single initiative, multiplied manifold with time, to provide multiple services contributing to the overall development of every individual of Nethrodaya.
