R.K. Mission Blind Boys' Academy, Narendrapur

Swimming Pool Project

Swimming is one of the best physical exercises that involves a little cost and offers the blind a very good scope for the development of their physical abilities. At their home situation this opportunity is scarcely available. It also develops their self confidence which is essential for their growth and development. The Swimming Pool Project was started in 1978 in an artificial pool with inlet and outlet facilities of water. It is a source of jubilation and excitement amongst the blind youngsters. Since the beginning of the project as many as 1132 blind students have been trained in swimming and are in a position to take part in State-level and National-level swimming competitions.

Sri Sukdeb Biswas participated in International Paralympic Swimming Championship in England (Sheffield) in the year 2006 and Sri Presenjit Adak participated in International Paralympic Swimming Championship in Germany (Berlin) in the year 2008.
