Story

Like most developing countries, India is not an easy place to be visually impaired and  even more so if you are born a girl child   The opportunities of growth , learning and development  are scarce for them . The visually impaired like most of us  too have such psychological “blind spots”, aspects of their personalities that are obvious to everyone but themselves. They are far better than they know and once they are made to see that, they will settle for nothing less in life.

The Summit 2022  , a 4-day training camp aims to do just that in association with the Cricket Association for the Blind in Delhi at the Himalayan Adventure Institute , Kempty Falls  Tehri Garhwal . A  team of  20 visually impaired  girl students shall take part in this  team-building and leadership summit and  use adventure  sports like rock climbing  , rappelling , rope courses , flying fox etc in  the great outdoors to help them explore their true potential as synergistic Leaders  and make most of the cognitive, physiological, and social benefits that accuse through such trainings.

As the Volunteer Student coordinator for fundraising and the organization of the summit, I truly believe that “ Inclusion is a Right  and not a Privilege for a select few”  . Through generating funds I solicit your   support for  a noble project  that helps  in sensitizing people towards the visually impaired, and give many the opportunity to understand how the visually impaired are  just like us and better if only they are given the platform they require to present and develop themselves.

With your help and funding support , let’s bring these visually impaired girl students  this metamorphic experience, one that they shall cherish forever, an experience with impactful values and life-skills that shall benefit them throughout the rest of their lives…

Let’s make Summit 2022 a reality!
