Leisure and entertainment are some of the major needs in our lives. Each and every individual has an equal right to experience entertainment and leisure. However, many visually impaired persons are isolated from such activities on account of their disability. Their parents, friends, and guardians often segregate them, when it comes to going out on a tour, our film or any exciting venture. They often come up with the lame excuse that their blind peers will fall, or that it is too crowded etc.
Jyothirgamaya aims at breaking this barrier by taking its participants on adventure trips to various places of attraction so as to enable them to experience the good things the world has to offer through touch, smell, and sound.
In 2019, our students had an opportunity to participate in a chess competition at the Marbecillius College of Engineering, with our access technology trainer who is
also a chess player, and also with another eminent visually impaired chess player
