Ideas for Orissa

We at Score Foundation are on the verge of launching Eyeway, the single stop knowledge resource on life with blindness in the State of Orissa.
Towards this end, we have conducted 4 two day workshops at Cuttack, Bhubaneshwar, Chandbani and Sambalpur. An average of 20 blind boys and girls attended these workshops where in we were focusing on goal setting, communication skills and the legal provisions.

These workshops were major eye openers for us. We were amazed at the extreme low levels of knowledge amongst the participants.
