R.K. Mission Blind Boys' Academy, Narendrapur


This is the post part of the Light Engineering training. After the completion of 18 months training the trainees go back to their own home and then our Rehabilitation Cell starts its activities to find out suitable jobs or any self Employment Scheme for them. Generally we appeal to the authority of different concerns including Government and Private Sectors for the proper employment of our ex-trainees. We also encourage them to start a small business by providing financial support in Self Employment Scheme. We visit the factories, industries or other concerns and try to locate jobs which are suitable for the visually impaired persons. Sometimes the key-persons of the different concerns visit the activities of our blind students and trainees in our campus. It is a continuing and long-term process through which the blind adults can get a job and stand on their own feet economically and lead a life with their heads held high.


            Since 1964 we have trained 603 blind adults so far and out of them about 67.16% are employed in different Govt. and Private sectors including self Emplyment. Still many of them are eagerly waiting to see that their aspiration of economic independence is fulfilled through gainful occupation.
