Snehadeep Trust for the Disabled was established in 1999 by three highly motivated graduates, all visually impaired, who had a strong desire to help people with disabilities experience the life opportunities for which they had to fight so hard to obtain.
Paul Muddha, visually challenged, post an MBA and MA Economics, is currently employed as a manager in Canara bank and has also taken the responsibility of running Snehadeep Trust. He is the recipient of the National Award for people with disabilities from the then President of India – Dr. A.P.J Abdul Kalam in 2004. A few quotes of Mr Paul Muddha - “look for opportunity, and not charity” “Helping hands are better then praying lips”, “Having a vision, is more important than having sight”

Vasudev is a visually challenged boy who hails from a poor family in Darjeeling, West Bengal. He was born visually challenged. His family managed to provide him with education until his 6th standard. After that he had to leave Darjeeling due to financial and familial problems. Later he was living in an orphanage where they could not take care of him any longer. He then decided to go to Maharashtra with some of his friends, in Mumbai where he started working in a hotel, cleaning vessels. He also had to stitch shoes to earn money to sustain in the big city. Vasudev reached a stage where due to his disability, his jobs were snatched away and he started begging on the streets of Mumbai. In 2008, a friend of his who saw him begging, brought him to Bangalore where he was given admission in a visually challenged school, where he completed SSLC. He was told to leave as he was not able to pay the fees. He started working again in a factory, and paid his college fees with that money. In 2012, Vasudev was brought to Snehadeep Trust by a friend. After joining Snehadeep, Vasudev was admitted into college, where he has shown that he is a brilliant student, always eager to learn new things.
