Contribute to a fund to create & distribute Braille Books for the visually challenged, INR 1500


Snehadeep Trust for the Disabled was established in 1999 to help people with disabilities experience the life opportunities for which they had to fight so hard to obtain.

The Basics

One of the most prevalent hurdles to education for the visually impaired is the availability of Braille textbooks. Snehadeep aims to provide free Braille textbooks to visually challenged students, thereby encouraging their continued education.

How It Works

• Snehadeep has procured its own Braille printing machine.
• However the Braille sheets have to be procured from a wholesaler.
• Snehadeep prints Braille textbooks and they are distributed free of cost to all students who are directly or indirectly associated with Snehadeep.
• For instance, very often students from other schools ask for Braille textbooks owing to its unavailability elsewhere and they are also helped.
• The organisation has one dedicated resource, who operates the machine and also doubles up as a proof-reader.
