What a Blind Person needs is not a teacher, one another self
Dear people,

We are of like minded people from  Chennai. Recently we all would have come across an accident where a blind female student was hit by a vehicle while crossing road on her way to college and she died due to the fatal injury caused by it. Having read about it, we spoke to other female students of the same college and it was really heart-aching to know that most of them, do suffer while crossing roads, not only while going to college or schools, also while they are moving about, as they all don't carry the normal blind canes with them and this makes them an easy victim of such accidents. 

We wish to help all those blind young students especially females who move about for work and education and assure them with secure life  by providing them with a Smart Cane, that comes with a sensor to detect the near approaching objects for the circumference of about 3 meters. We also came to know more about this cane, which is one of the most beautiful inventions by our Indian scientists and it is majorly sold in large number for foreign countries. This cane vibrates and signals the owner on detecting any nearing objects on their way. An individual can just keep it in hands and still it can vibrate on detecting objects. We made our initial talks with the manufacturer of this cane and came to know that this would greatly help our female sisters scattered around our city. 

 We have started this noble vision of helping around 2000 blind students in and around Chennai, by providing this special cane as a small initial step. This is our small initial step, where we are planning to distribute the Canes bought by collected funds through one of the reputed NGO Udhavum Ullangal  run by Mr. Sankar Mahadevan. We are going to distribute the canes throughout Tamil Nadu by reaching all districts one by one through our NGO.

 The Smart canes are little costly around Rs. 3700 per cane and it requires huge funds and support to attain this great feat. We are seeking through all means of support to gather enough money and sponsor for around 2000 smart canes.

 Providing the smart canes to these students will largely reduce such accidents and assure them security as well.

 Please support us by rendering your monetary help and we could make a great change in the society. This great product by our own country people should reach the hands of the needy. Let us also assure our fellow humans with good secure life just as we are enjoying.
