Help us to make the Blind school, Tilak Nagar Mysore Accessible and Blind Friendly:
Need- The irony of a blind school not being blind friendly compelled us to take up this initiative. This project will not only help us to provide easy accessibility of the campus to the students, but also help us to educate them about the use of tactile maps and braille signages.

Scope of work- Braille signage are to be installed inside the premises (As suggested by the school authorities) and tactile maps have to be installed (a Anuprayaas initiative).

Budget Requirement:

Required Items
Braille Plates
Tactile Map
Installation Charges
Commercial RO Plant water purifier system
Total 52,500

Outcome- The signage installed would help the children identify the classrooms and other places easily. The tactile maps would help in easy navigation for the new students. It would also help in creating awareness about the concept of tactile maps so that it could later be made maximum use of when installed in other public places.
