Provided Quality Education To 1000 Children With Intellectual And Physical Disabilities
Three persons with visual impairment decided to work for the education, rehabilitation and all round welfare of all categories of differently abled. They brought together four more people and started a Trust named Blind Welfare Council. They decided to help the differently abled at every stage of life so that they do not face the hardships that they faced for themselves. They wanted to ensure that the all differently abled people of Dahod and Panchmahals districts have access to equal opportunities. They wanted to provide these people a good quality of life and participation in the society that respects their rights and dignity. The founder Yusufi Kapadia says, "I have suffered a lot during my studies and for getting a job, being visually challenged. It is my aim that each and every child or person with disability should get equal opportunity in all fields of life and all his rights be fulfilled. He should live a life at par with any other citizen of the country. Leadership by a person with visual impairment has made a great change in the working of the staff members." About 150 students with intellectual disabilities, and about 30 students with hearing impairment are being trained for activities of daily living and primary academics since 2002. 1000 children with intellectual disabilities, hearing impairment, visual impairment are trained and educated by the special teachers. Aids & appliances distributed as per the need like tricycle, wheel chair, crutches, white cane, hearing aids etc - 500 Sudents with intellectual disability, blindness or with locomotor disability are being trained in operating computers - 20 In 2017, Blind welfare council Dahod was awarded the International Excellence award by the Association of Rehab Professional and Allied Services & Para Sports Association Excellent Service to the differently abled.

Empowering people in need to access livelihood opportunities,Regular access to healthy and nutritious food
Blind Welfare Council - Dahod conducts computer training for physically challenged students. This training is conducted with the help of JAWS (Job Access With Speech) software as well as Braille reading and writing. Donations to this program supports the salaries of teachers, attendants as well as food and administrative expenses of the students. Blind Welfare Council - Dahod works in the most backward areas of Dahod-Panchmahal districts of Gujarat. The people here are poor, illiterate and are from tribal communities. The disability rate is quite high in this area because of lack of nutritious food and a lack of awareness and illiteracy among the tribal people. Looking at this the Blind Welfare Council - Dahod set up this program to support people with different categories of disabilities - the visually impaired, hearing impaired, mentally challenged, loco-motor disabled etc. This program helps them in acquiring skills that will help them get employment which will make them independent. The center has a classroom with ten computers where disabled people, either blind or with other disabilities are trained. When you donate to this program you help people with disabilities with computer training that can help them get jobs and live a life of dignity.
