Empowering the Blind in all spheres of life!
We empower the blind in skills” they need”, also instilling in them a positive attitude, and determination to be self confident and self reliant.
We train blind people in all forms of access technology, communication, interpersonal skills, employability, and vocational skills.

Empowering Today is Empowering Tomorrow
Jyothirgamaya, a pioneering effort in India, 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.
To drive and support the growth of the blind in all possible spheres of life, through need-based individualized training in all necessary skills, we aim to pave the way for them to embark on their journey of self-growth. Our focus is on sharpening their personalities and enabling them to get suitable employment as well as to sensitize the general public to ensure an equal opportunity for the blind to live as every other citizen does.
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 that is conducive to their overall growth and provides a platform of free expression for them.
To integrate and assimilate them into mainstream society. There are many obstacles that stand as a hindrance to their success. We at Jyothirgamaya endeavor to empower 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!
Give Education for Visually Impaired
How can we help?
India is the home to almost fifteen million blind people, only a minority of them have access to a good education, this is due to poverty, ignorance and distance. They lack immensely in orientation and mobility skills and are not able to perform the activities of daily living. They are not able to explore out of their homes unaided and hence end by being confined to the four walls of the house. In most cases the guardians are not aware of the proper training institutes. Living in rural areas is another hiccup in the access to special training centers.
We at Jyothirgamaya empower the blind enable them to raise their voices, take their lives into their own hands, and train them in all skills they need to be at par with their sighted counterparts. We sharpen their personalities enabling them to fight against all odds and be at the throne of their lives
Since 2012, Jyothirgamaya through grassroots level training and residential empowerment program has transformed many lives. We have trained 200 people at home and through camps, and 1100 people through our residential empowerment program people who could not step out of their home are now traveling with the utmost confidence with a white came the uneducated blind have bloomed as successful bread winners with the help of access technology
