1947 is recognized by Indians as a water-shed year for the nation. It was in this year that the country gained independence and could finally decide its own destiny, standing on its own two feet. As if in a parallel development, there was a similar thought process in the mind of Mr. Mangulal J Shah, who wanted to raise the education and skills of India's visually challenged persons ( VCP's) so high that they would no longer be dependent on others for their self sufficiency. Thus the history of the National Association for the Blind, India too begins in 1947 itself. This seed was then watered for the first time in Bombay by Mr. B. G. Kher, the then Premier of Bombay Province, who moved a resolution at the First All India Conference for the Blind, and helped establish NAB, India. The National Association for the Blind works with visually impaired people of all age groups, and runs a number of programs that range from providing Integrated education and Vocational Training to visually impaired children and adults, to designing certifiable courses and recording audio books. NAB aims to re-integrate visually impaired people into regular life, and has gone on to touch the lives of thousands of people.

The mission of the National Association for the Blind, India is to establish itself as an icon of boundless services for the blind. Since its inception, each year has been a forward leap for them in promoting the interests of people with vision loss in India. NAB also runs a rehabilitation course at their Mahalaxmi centre in Mumbai. Two rehabilitation programs of 3.5 months each are held every year, for which trainees are selected after an interview. Practical training is imparted by a 12 member team, as per a prescribed syllabus. The faculty is well-educated and has wide experience in respective fields. To keep them motivated, lectures by eminent personalities on various topics are also arranged. This covers all the aspects that can possibly help the visually challenged person to become independent. They are also motivated to take part in entertainment programs, sports/quiz competitions and are also taken for outings. To inform the parents about their ward's progress, parents' meeting is arranged at the end of the course. Students who live outside Mumbai can avail free residential facility. All requirements during the course like uniforms, toiletries, medical aid, food, etc. are taken care of by NAB. Your small donation will provide nutritious food to these beneficiaries, during their rehabilitation period.
