According to the Kerala Federation for the Blind, 2001 sample survey, there are four lakh blind people in the state of Kerala, out of which only five hundred have been given employment in the government sector. There are still many in search of proper employment. The reason behind this unemployment among the blind is their lack of confidence, lack of training, and capabilities and unawareness among the sighted about their potentialities and abilities. To overcome this barrier, Jyothirgamaya has introduced training aimed at developing in interpersonal skills and life skills.
Under this training, the candidates seeking employment shall be taught proper communication skills, life skills, behavioral patterns, suitable body language, interview skills, and resume writing. These skills along with the computer training shall pave the way for their employment both in the public as well as in the private sector.
