Helping The Blind Help Themselves.
The Blind Relief Association focuses on providing education and training to the visually challenged, enabling them to realize their potential and be self reliant.

Support

You can also help us!

For running such a large number of programmes and services for the visually impaired, the Association depends largely on the goodwill and philanthropy of the society. You too can lend your support to us in a number of ways, some of which are:
  • Personal association and active participation in the activities for the education, training and welfare of the visually impaired voluntary work, reading and recording for children
  • Giving monetary or material support to help us make our goals a reality. Monetary donations to the Association are exempt under Section 80G of the Income Tax Act-1961
  • Corporate funding of projects or programmes aimed at making the visually impaired self-reliant
  • Mobilizing funds for the Association's activities
  • Employing visually impaired persons, not out of sympathy but on merit of their skill and output. Contact or visit us for a spot assessment of our trainees. Our placement officer can also get in touch with you. In many jobs blindness is no handicap. A visually impaired worker's output is equal to - and sometimes more than-that of a sighted person. Give us the opportunity to see whether there is any work for the visually impaired person in your firm where the visually impaired can compete on equal terms with the sighted staff. (Contact Persons: Mr.A.David, Project Officer (mob: 9953494419) or Mr.Tejendra Singh - Placement Cell (mob:7428321155). 
Visit us and/or contact us to discuss more on how you could help the visually impaired.

  • M/s Petronet LNG Limited -  Donating daily use items for JPM School students staying in Association’s hostel
  • Matters of Community (MOC) -   is a non-profit charity organisation based in California, U.S.A. founded in 2004 by Neal Bharadwaj, a high school junior, who was inspired by volunteering experience at a resource centre in Milpitas for disabled children and their families.  Through the use of music, art, theatre and sports MOC takes on projects directly with individuals as well as funds activities of other non-profit organisations that share the MOC mission. 

MOC’s association with the Blind Relief Association, Delhi is a story of beautiful relationship that has evolved over the last 6 years.  It had a musical beginning when Neal and his brother visited the J.P.M. Sr. Sec. School in the Association and gave an enchanting clarinet recital for the School students.  This first interaction led to the second visit when the two brothers  jointly with the JPM students practiced and presented a music programme at the School. Upon returning to California they generated funds to support upgrading of the Music Room of JPM School.
In 2004 MOC  provided a donation of US $ 3000 with a matching contribution by BEBO Technologies Limited, a company own by Mr. Rajeev Rai who is a member of MOC, for acquiring Everest D V4 Braille Printer, Duxbury Braille Translation Software and a Computer for the Braille Production Unit. The new facilities have substantially strengthen the capacity to produce braille study material required by the students of JPM School as well as other visually challenged students in need of such study material.
This year MOC has decided to support the dance training programme named TWINKLE for the benefit of the students of JPM School.





  

Thank You Somya for your support


Somya Jain, a resident of San Ramon, California, is currently an 11th grade student of Dougherty Valley High School. During her summer 2012 trip to New Delhi, India, she visited the Blind Relief Association campus on Lal Bahadur Shastri Marg and was greatly inspired by the efforts of our institution. Being an avid piano player, she decided to raise money for our institution by giving piano lessons to elementary school children in her neighbourhood. Since summer 2013, Somya has raised USD $500 and donated to the Blind Relief Association.

Somya says, “I am amazed by the Association’s efforts. This is a noble cause, and I will continue to support the Blind Relief Association in the coming years. I hope to visit the campus again the next time I am in Delhi, and I plan to entertain the students by playing piano.”
