AP’s visually challenged students miss the bus

Visually impaired students in Andhra Pradesh are unable to make use of an opportunity to educate themselves with financial aid provided by an offshore NRI donor organisation. The reasons attributed are lack of awareness coupled with the mindset of their parents.Help the Blind Foundation, a Hong Kong-based service organisation floated by a group of NRIs, offers scholarships to visually challenged students in India to make them worthy of jobs in modern society.
The organisation funds university education of 365 students drawn from 53 different colleges across the country.
