Welcome to Jyothirgamaya Foundation!

Jyothirgamaya, a pioneering effort in Kerala, which endeavors to empower the blind in all spheres of life. Jyothirgamaya seeks to not only lead the blind to live enlighten and holistic lives, but also attempts to give the sighted population a new perspective on how to look at the blind.

Our goal

To integrate and assimilate them into mainstream society. There are many obstacles in the way of the blind which stand as a hindrance to their success. We at Jyothirgamaya endeavor to enable them to overcome these obstacles. Our aim is to bring a new spark into the lives of Blind and to take them out of their comfort zones and open the doors to a new world!

Our vision

To see a barrier-free environment where the blind are empowered to use their potential, contribute and be at the forefront of society. A home where they are bread winners contributing to their families. A society which is conducive to their overall growth and provides a platform of free expression for them.

Our mision

To empower the blind in all possible spheres of life, through need-based individualized training in all necessary skills paving the way for sharpening their personalities, and enabling them to get suitable employment and to sensitize the general public on their outlook towards the Visually Impaired and provide them with an equal opportunity to live as every other citizen does
